    tonight i was driving to a friends house and my brakes gave out in my 1989 K5 and ended up hitting a steap deap ditch.....from what i oculd tell from looking at it in the dark the frame is bent into a V my engine trani and t-case is leaning to the driverside as well and cocked a little sideways and the output of the rear shaft on the tcase is pointing about mid way to the rear tire from the pumkin....the front clip is pushed back into the cab and both axles are a little off center.....it has completly lost park and reverse as well as stuck in 4 high........

    Man, sorry to hear that. I would wait till morning so you can see the damage in the light. Survey the damage then. If its too much to fix, then strip what you can, get another K5, and start over again.

    Word. A non-runing shell wont set you back much. If you tear it all apart you got the chance to do all the cool mods you've wanted! Silver lining?
