    Here ya go guys... from me to you, a tour of my K5...

    [​IMG]

    Here is my truck in all it's splendor... yes, in case you were wondering, that is a Furd hood scoop that will be removed very soon... Here's a better view of the hood. =)

    [​IMG]

    And here's the inside....

    [​IMG]

    Oh yeah... and check out this spring flex.... I tried to get it to flex today, and it just kinda stayed there... drove up on a pile of rocks, jumped out to look, and my body was tilted rather than the springs flexing... I was disappointed.


    [​IMG]

    Just for good measure, and comparison.... a picture of my inside rocker panel in the door.

    [​IMG]

    Here's some random pics of my family... minus me...

    This is Pete... he lives with us, and irons my work clothes... he also has the skills to be anything he wants, yet seems satisfied with working with morons in a Casino...

    [​IMG]

    Here's my wife Jenny... she's tired...

    [​IMG]

    Here's Loki, our Husky....

    [​IMG]

    And this is why Jenny is tired...

    [​IMG]

    And this should lend some explanation into the whole matter... Stoned???

    Not the God of War, but close enough... he's the God of Mischief... but also the angel in the Bible who rained fire and brimstone down on Sodom and Gamora. Anyway, he lives up to his name.... we were on a farm yesterday, and being that we are far from any roads, I figured he could go running for a while... he was initially coming back when I called him, then decided to take off.... after realizing that my unlifted truck would high center if I attempted to chase after him, I waited for my wife to get there with dog treats... and he came right to her with no coaxing at all... I was pissed. =)

    yup... stock 465... it's listed that way in the glovebox... =) However, the monkey that owned it before me removed the tilt steering column and put in a non tilt with a Auto shifter guage and shifter slot... if it turns at all, the truck thinks it's not in neutral or park and won't start... Grrrr.... anyone have a tilt column laying around with intermittent wiper control? he took that off too...

    He's 9 months old... July 11th is his B-Day, sadly, he's snipped, so we'll never see any more little rascals running around... though I do want another one so i can go sledding this winter.

    If you can't afford an alarm, install a little red blinking light... most of em will walk away when they see that. I have an ignition alarm but i had the wire cut cause i lost the beeper so i'm relying on the light for now.

    Your dogs name reminds me of LOKE DOG in "Don't be a menace in south central while drinkin your juice in the hood"... that movie is the sh$t.


    Dude you should keep the scoop... looks sick. :saweet: :saweet: :thumb:

    In that case... anyone know how to make that scoop more than a cosmetic piece without the danger of flooding my engine with water or snow?
