    well at the moment i have 2 trucks. but i really want a k5. Now one of my trucks is a 00 standard cab z71 that im looking to trade in for a 2wd colorado. My other truck is a 89 chevy crew 4x4 3500. I have a very small one car garage that wont even fit my wifes jetta, then there is my sisters car. I can fit 2 in the driveway and the other 2 in the street. So is a 3rd truck (the k5) one two many? My neighbor's are all pretty cool except for the crackhead across the street.

    Hmm maybe i should save my money and buy a house with rv parking :D

    I have 3 plus the wife's car. The big problem IS the parking! Had to sell my car trailer and find a place for the boat. I'm looking for some land and will be building a shop. Then who knows......

    There is a benefit if you live in snow country. My driveway is two wide and about 3 times as long as my crew cab.
    I have these in it:
    86 Suburban
    83 C10 diesel rack body
    88 V3500 crew cab dually
    00 Chrysler town and country (wifes)
    97 Jeep TJ (wheeling rig)
    86 Honda Accord (gas saver)

    So after a snow storm all I have to do is back everything out in the road and brush them off befor the plows go buy. Clean the plows mound at the end afterwards and done :D

    As long as you keep the required amount registered then their can't be to many can there?
    They only way I would say it is too much is if you have a rare 1st gen or something that is sitting rotting while you never get to it. If you aren't going to get around to a build thats rare than pass it on to someone who will.

    when my grandfather passed away he left me my own junkyard on his property there are two 2 car garages and a 4 car garage, and its contents consist of 5 beetles, 2 k-5's, 3 s-10's, a 72 nova, 75 3/4 ton chevy stakebody, a chevy celebrity and enough junk parts to fill all the garages to the point where only the 5 bettles fit in the garages. thank god we live in the boondocks.
