    Ive been debating over the past few weeks on what to do with my K5. Im almost at the point where rust is going to start segregating the body from the frame. The whole rear floor would have to be replaced. Tailgate is shot, holes in the walls by the seat belt lower bolts, driver door major rust wholes, passanger rocker completly shot, driver rocker getting there, rusted lower radiator support (body mount) makes the truck lean to driverside. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    If i repair everything it will take me months and a couple grand $$$. Problem is its my daily driver. I would like to get a tow rig/daily driver. That would allow me to /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif on the blazer.

    What should i do!!???!?! /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif I wish the K5 Fairy would come by and fix my baby!!! /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    Yeah, I think you should get a DD and then just use your rustbucket as a trailrig bashing and upgrading when neccesary. Or just bash it to pieces and upgrade your DD.
    Whichever way you go, just have some fun with it. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
