    Here are a few pics of my never ending project. It's not completely done, but it's close.

    Sweet truck ... pickup tailgate, interesting.

    Does the rear hoop *bolt* onto the horizontal bars going to the front cage?

    Love to see pix of the cage up font, particularly as it goes across the dash.

    And is that a fiberglass low-profile hood? :ears:

    Yes, lopro fiberglass hood. Here is a better pic of the hood and the front seating area. The hood was kind of a pia. I had to cut out the reinforments and reposition them because the hood would not fit flush the way it came from factory.

    Looks sharp, man. :thumb: I always wanted to go with something like a canary yellow on a K5.

    How tall of a suspension are you running?

    LOL, it is... already, a full blown "lounge" chop. :haha: I've never met Mr T. :thumb:


    I think that's what's so sweet about it, it looks pretty damn good for a chop.

    Specs are pretty much in my sig line. It just has a 12 bolt rear and 10 bolt front, chromolly axle shafts. We'll see how they hold up. I have tried to take as much weight as possible off to help with trail breakage. The lighter the better.

    What brand hood are you running? I want one and don't want to go through the extra trouble.

    EDIT - come to think of it, was it US Body?

    Sorry, it is a 6" BDS lift with spacers between each leaf to give it more flex. ORD shackles in front with greasable bushings. As far as keeping it nice or not, I will try not to bang it up too bad, but I am going to wheel it. Whatever happens happens
