    Here\'s a quick pic of my \'78 K5

    Well, I finally figured out how to do this! Here's my 1978 K5 Blazer. It has a Superlift 6" kit, small block 400, turbo 350 tranny, NP203 t-case converted to part time 4WD, 12 bolt rear and 10 bolt front, 35" Super Swampers. I'm in the process of negotiating a deal on a 14 bolt FF rear and Dana 44 front with 4.10's. I just put new front fenders, doors and rockers. Soon I'll be putting in a whole new bed floor! (YIKES!)

    On your way to some serious rock crawling ...

    Good luck!

    The body is pretty solid.....well...now anyway! The 400 runs like a bear, It's all stock except for a Edelbrock Performer intake, Holley 600 carb, Headers and dual exhaust.

    Those are old wheels.......I think they call them cyclones or something. They are a wierd size too, 15x8-1/4 I think they about the same vintage as the blazer so they look really good on it. If I ever get my eight lug rears I'll be selling these wheels.

    Thanks! But I'm jealous! I would love to have a full removable top again! I used to have a '71 K5 and I miss it dearly.
