    Found this site a few days ago, and I think it's going to end up costing me a ton of money! I'm a former owner of a 1990 GMC Jimmy, now I need another one. I've always regretted selling that truck, now I'm pissed at myself for selling it. The hunt is on...

    Yes, this site has cost me a lot of money. I keep finding out out about all these cool mods that I have to have. I started out looking for info on D60's when I found this site. Now I have cross over steering, shackle flip, steering brace, greasable bushings, and there are still lots of things I want.



    That's because I'm the devil.

    Welcome aboard! This sight is addicting, and has been known to cause many members to spend large sums of cash and spend long nights in the garage...don't say we didn't warn you ! [​IMG]
    Keep an eye out for any K30's in good shape too....even if you want a blazer/jimmy, they have great drivetrains.

    Welcome new CK5 brother !

    Funny, same thing has happened to alot of people I'v met here. I had a GMC Jimmy for one year, got rid of the oil leaking, part breaking, gas guzzling piece of #### and was so happy to see it go. One year later I was back looking for a new one. Once you go big, it's no turning back. Regular cars just isn't the same. It compears to owning a old Harley Davidson. It's a love hate thing.

    Well Strom Trooper, now I know this site rocks. Can't go wrong with a Nuge reference! I'm from Grand Rapids.

    Espen88K5, that's exactly my story. My truck needed some work, I started a new job that required a 70 mile drive (one way) so I decided to buy a new truck. I won't own an IFS truck, so you can probably guess what 1/2 ton I bought. It's not bad, it's just not the Jimmy.

    I believe I have my Olds sold, so I'm well on my way to owning another K5. It might take me awhile to find the one I want, I'm going to make sure I find one that's exactly what I'm looking for (or at least pretty close). My friend has a '72 for sale that needs a motor, but I think I'd rather have another one like I sold. Oh well, part of the fun is looking for one.

    Fish, I think Blazerbabe will sell hers cheap...
    It could be another big road trip with CK5 roadside assistance on your side. Always someone on the way willing to fill you up on food, drink and parts. Give us a list of what you want and we will keep an eye out for you.
    Grim, Livonia? I grew up at 5 mile & Newburg road. Ever been in Hines Park? It use to be one wild place. I think I'm going out there this fall, I'll say HI to Gramma Reaper for you.[​IMG]

    This site is unbelievably addicting. Good thing I don't have credit, or I'd spend money I don't even have!

    I love this site, I don't know how many times I can say it. Thanks for hooking me up, Powermad! This site is just such a great source for info on these 4x4s, and all of you are more heavily modified than mine is!

    I thought I was special because I had a 3/4 ton shortbox until I realized all you guys have 1 ton K5s!

    As it says next to my name, I'm an addict!

    Oh sure lehtola, tease me with a picture of my old truck! Just kidding, but it's awfully close. Mine was white and grey with a maroon interior.

    Addiction seems to be guarantee with this site. All I've been
    doing for the past week is checking it out. You guys have some great rides.
