    Had it up to here with my current job and have decided to work for myself. What are some of the parts you would like to see made for your truck; not just a K5. Thanks.

    how about spring plates for rear ends, ie 10/12 bolts and 14bff's that have shock mounts built in?

    how about bumper KITS..with everything prebent and marked where to weld?

    how about rocksliders for trucks that go from wheel opening to wheel opening, and are available for custom order depending on trimming..

    just a couple thoughts..

    spare tire carrier that goes in the bed of a truck or k5, that holds the tire up. Like a Baja truck would have it. A bolt in system for the bed of a k5, to hold Tool boxes, Water Jugs, Gas Cans, or anything else that slides around.

    spare tire carrier that bolts to the floor of the truck but i think i'd prefer it flat not at an angle, unless the wheel wells are in the way.
