    How many body mounting points is there on a k5 tub, from the fire wall, to the back? I found 3 on each side, for a total of 6, is this all there is? is there anything else holding it down? Thanks!

    There should be 10 total on a K5. 2 are on the radiator core support. The rest that you are interested in are: 2 under the front floorboards at the driver and passengers feet, 2 at the rear of the cab where the floor goes up to meet the bed, 2 in the center of the bed which connect to a crossmember between the frame rails, and the last 2 are at the rear corners.

    yeah I got the 2 radiator support ones...
    so 8 more... I'll go look tomorrow to see if I can find the 7th ad 8th one. I tried to get them off today with an impact gun, they wouldn't move, they just rattled the floorboards /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif I might just have to cut them off...

    LOL there is so much rust I keep finding, I was taking off the chrome stripping that goes all around the body, and my screwdriver slipped (I was prying it up with that) and my screwdriver went right through a rust patch /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
