    Hey Scott......welcome to the party! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    I have to agree with the rest of the guys.....you'll have a hard time leaving it 'bone stock' if you hang out on this site too long!!! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif That's actually NOT a bad thing either, these trucks can be amazing with some relatively minor changes.

    Thanks for the welcome everyone. The reason why my K5 is completely bone stock is due to the fact that I'm broke right now. I've got other priorities as of right now. In a few months I'll be working on it. Listed below are my plans for it.

    5.5" Suspension Lift, 1" Body Lift
    1 Ton Dana 60 front axle w/ 4.11:1 gears and an ARB
    1 Ton 14 Bolt FF rear axle w/ 4.11:1 gears and Detroit Locker
    ORD NP203/NP205 Doubler w/ 3.6:1 WMS gears in the NP203
    36x14.50-15 Parnelli Jones Dirt Grip tires on 15x12 steel Beadlock rims
    Full Rollcage
    Onboard Air w/ York compressor
    Custom made half doors for Summertime Wheelin'
    All Primer Black paint job (Primer is Finer!)
    Warn HS9500i Winch
    ORD Crossover Steering
    And finally, a Banks turbo kit on the 6.2L Diesel

    So, whaddya think?

    What do I think........?

    I think that even once you HAVE money, you are STILL going to be broke! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    That's an impressive (and expensive!) list of goodies.....most of which I'd like to have on my own K5. Looks like you hit the key points though, and got the "right stuff" picked out.

    Greg72,

    Yeah, I know where you're coming from on that one. I already have the lift, front Dana 60, Banks Turbo kit, and the half doors sitting in my Uncle's garage waiting to be put on my K5. The half doors were made by a friend of mine, I got the Dana 60 for free by my former boss at work, and I bought the Banks Turbo kit and the lift used.

    Even the radio, and the tires are original? Just kidding. Welcome! Don't forget to vote by clicking the orange vote button above.

    It had an unoriginal radio in it but since its broken, I decided to take it and the broken CB radio out. My K5's previous owner put a set of 32x11.50-15 tires on it a week before he passed away (R.I.P., Steve Losh).

    Yes, I'm keeping the 700R4. The reason why I'm going with a 4.11:1 gear ratio in the axles is because of the overall crawl ratio I'll have.

    700R4 trans (3.06:1 first gear) x WMS modded NP203 (3.6:1 low gear) x NP205 (1.96:1 low gear) x 4.11:1 gear ratio in the axles = 89:1 crawl ratio.

    Welcome aboard, but I think you've got your priorities mixed up in your "wish list".........

    The Banks turbo needs to be at the top of the list!!! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
