    I don't know. There's this damn goose that has it out for me at work. He likes to hide and pop out when I come by. Sometimes he hides under my truck and even landed on it once. I'll get a picture of the dirty bastard one of these days. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    got to love the geese.... anyway yeah K5s are big old kits really. It always catches me by surprise when I am driving down the road on a windy day and then the trees break and there is an open field, bam instant cross wind and I am sent into the other lane or towards the ditch. On a windy day by the time I get where I am going and back my wrist hurts(drive one handed).

    I should add the fact that my K5 has an SM465 so my other hand is always on the gear shifter.... hmm somehow that didn't sound any better.

    Man my luv (even though its a little bugger) gets pushed around in the wind alot. it dont take much to push 2600lbs and it has manual steering wich makes long trips in wond vary interesting. My moms TJ dosent even catch wind as bad as the luv. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    You guys think driving a K5 in a cross wind is bad, try it in a Suburban!! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Nothing like cranking the wheel 45 degrees into the wind to stay straight on the road /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif
