    K5 Chassis with 4 link suspension front and rear
    1985 chevy k5 frame with clean title. Built personally by Randy Ellis @ Randy Ellis Design. Check out his work at www.randyellisdesign.com
    Super Stout! The welding on this suspension is sick. Every tab, tower, link etc. is made to exacting specifications. No corners were cut.

    You could mount a “full-bodied” 2nd gen blazer on this frame (the stock body mounts still are there). Then you have a sleeper desert truck/ rock buggy/ cruiser that is totally capable of being driven on a daily basis.

    THIS IS A STEAL! considering kits for a 3 or 4 link where you still have to weld and add coilovers can run you around $2500 - $3000 per front or rear(all you would have to do is add a motor, steering box, plumbing, wiring and you have a performance chassis under a sheetmetal friendly body or buggy cage)
