    Looks like you'd be as screwed as me if you got stuck in a rainstorm at Hollister!!!!!

    Yep... I have to go out and put a tarp on it... I paid $500.00 for it.. It also has the 203 with the part time kit... And the guy as made it threw the tank trap three times with it.. Twice down it and once up...Dan

    $500.......Cool.

    For that price, I'd say you'd have no regrets no matter WHAT you did to it!!! Chop the fenders....put on 42's......do all the things you were afraid to do (or unwilling to do!) to your other K5.....Pull off the doors, pull off the roof......make it into a "Mad Max" vehicle!!!!!!

    Remember "lighter" is easier on parts.....don't even bother with expensive axles......just get out the Sawzall and liberate all that sheetmetal from it's weighty existence!!!!!

    Oh yes......and keep the "rattlecan" paintjob......that's cool too!!! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Specs....Looks like a stock 350...I have to put the heads back on,,,Duel exhaust with no cat.., Looks like a 3 inch lift with 2 inch blocks in the rear with 2 inch leafs... Military Front and rear bumpers.With the military night lights.. All electric windows. Duel battery setup. Tilt steering wheel with cruise control.. I believe it as 3.73 gears with a D44 up front and 12 bolt rear. Also has a TH400 and a 203 t-case with part time kit in it. The only bad thing is it as a pretty good dent in the passenger side door...I think I could have some fun with this thing...Dan.

    Very cool Dan!
    I want to see a show this year at hollisters blazerfest!
    Lets see you go down tank trap 4 times and up it 2!
    That dent in the passanger side door? We'll see one on the drivers side door that extends down the whole side of the truck before too long. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif
