    for those of us that have fallen into the endless downward spiral of life that consumes every moment of our existence i am starting K5A. BLAZER ANONYMOUS. I know you are out there. You buy every 4 wheel drive magazine that comes out -- maybe even the same one twice! You spend most of your days on the internet or browsing catalogs for cool gadgets and extremely expensive parts for your blazer. You can't sleep because you are CONSTaNTLY thinking about your truck and what you want to do to it- or because you are paranoid that it could get stolen. Your relationship is in turmoil because of the lack of time spent with your significant other. Almost all of the money you make goes into your truck and your debts are increasing. I know you out there. Get help as soon as you can...!

    I love my truck

    Sounds like most people on this site will be signing up. I would, but I'm still in denial of having a problem. But as soon as I come to terms, sign me up - Jay

    Dude, I thought I was the only freak out there. I feel much better now. You got me down to a 'T'. My girlfriend gets pissed every time I spend a weekend with my significant other (my truck). I only have .91 cents in my account due to my K5. I don't know what else to do. Oh, the way I fixed my magazine problem is by subcribing to the mags for at least 2 years. I don't know if that's an actual cure, but oh well. At least I know I'm not alone out there.

    Hi my name is Michael and I'm a K5-a-holic. It started out as my wifes K5 and I have somehow managed to turn it into a weekend warrior. I'm in a local support group that meets every other saturday morning to discuss my unruley behavior, acts of aggression, and the occassional physical damage I inflict on my K5. My wife says I'm going to the wrong support group. I asked her why she thinks so and she says because since I started going the K5 comes home with more dents,scratches, sometimes it even rolls into the driveway with 3 36"tires and a 33", and every now an then I bring it home with a nice layer of mud.
    I think she might be right, because the support group really doesnt talk about their problems they demonstrate them on hills, rocks, mud, and whatever else they can use as prop's and I dont want to be an outsider so I play my part in the group. I tell my wife its for the best.[​IMG]

    Hello my name is Dan and I'm a K5-a-holic. The only reason I am saying that is because my wife is making me. My wife says one of the kids needs braces. And I need a new set of Ring & Pinion. I say we either flip for it our arm wrestle for the money. There is no problem here..

    Become one with nature...........Then marinate it..

    I couldn't get my truck thru the 7' door on my attached garage, so I built a 24X36 shop with 8'X16' front door and a 8'X10' back door so I could drive thru...had to have a drain so I could do fluid work...I have a TV, stereo, and Fridge just so I don't have to leave my truck just so I can eat or get a cold one...I can also sleep with my truck when the need arises...I used to have a problem, building this shop solved all that...JD

    I'm at 10th and Plum....10 miles from nowhere, and Plum out in the sticks....Stuck?...Hell no..I still got some gas left..

    wow what a response. I need to share to everyone that i have SERIOUS PROBLEMS. I have been in denial for uh..i would say 2 years now CONSTANTLY making excuses for my behavior. Now it is time. Time to explain why I have these problems. Sunday I did went wheeling with my new lift and climbing a hill that was so steep the front tires were bouncing off the ground almost to the point of flipping completely backwards. I have a love affair with the rush i get from things like this and CANNOT STOP THIS MAD OBSESSION. Man I love my truck!!! I nEED HELP!!!

    Hello my name is Jon, and I'm a K5-a-holic. I remember when bigger tires was enough to satisfy my fix for the day, now my tolerance is so high I need a lift in the morning to wake up and an axle swap at night to fall asleep. I tried the patch and gum, neither worked for me. I even sold old gears to my little brother so that I could afford my next fix. I don't see the end in sight, I only see my addiction getting worse with age. I'm doomed too, it runs in the family on my old man's side, It's in my genes. It feels better to talk to others with similar problems. Thank you.

    The only easy day was yesterday.

    I am not addicted. I can click the "X" and close this window at any time. I am not addicted. I can turn the computer off and go to bed at a reasonable time without supervision. I am not addicted. I can put the magazines and catalogs down and have a conversation about non-automotive subjects. I am not addicted. I can drive on the streets and not pay any attention to the other K5's on the roads. I am not addicted.

    Ummm, I think I might have a problem...

    I was a K5-a-holic, but I quit. It is easy to quit. I quit several times each day.
