    Good deal man. Yeah, I'm right here on top of you (literally) because I'm staying at Mountaineer Apartments. Hell I walk by your dorm to go to class.

    I have only seen two K5's up here and they didn't look too capable, so I'm going to have to break it out on them with the Beater Truck. I've got to go home Labor Day weekend and finish it, then I can come up here and show these Heep guys what it's about.

    You said it brother. I have seen maybe 4 or 5 k5's up here, but none of them were representing really well. None of them were on more than half ton running gear. Anyways, drop me a line....my email is hr68675@appstate.edu. We can hang out or talk truck sometimes. Maybe even go wheeling.

    Man, sorry. I havent been in the doorm since about thursday. I just now noticed that you sent me an email and I completley forgot about calling you. My bad. Damn. Hit me up on my cell phone (336)707-2802, and you will probably have a much better chance than reaching me on my room phone. Ill remember to give you call tomorrow. Sorry about this weekend man. Too many parties to think about at the same time. lol.

    Yes I do. If and when you get it, tire maintance is very important. So make sure you keep the air changed in the tires for proper wear and ride. :wink1:

    thanks again john, but i know about tire maintenence, checking the fluids, etc (i drive a commercial horse transport trailer). unfortunately, with this blazer stuff, i have a general knowledge (the guys in high school) but not enough to get specific. i've actually driven this k5 before, and have been trying to get him to sell it to me for the past 4 years; and he is, FINALLY :p: i need tech pointers and descriptions of what i'm looking for. but keep the pointers coming :D

    i'd like to do some moderate trails, here in boone and home (waxhaw/monroe area). i dont want tons of heavy performance mods cause i won't really need them for that, just general ground clearance, some good lights for playing in the dark(running from the law, perhaps), tires that will be good for dirt and snow (snows a lot in boone), and it has to be able to keep up with the guys i drive with. anything else you need to know to give "pointers?" :wink1:
