    I was digging through some old cds and ran across some early pics of my virgin K5. So here is a time line in pictures from where I started to where it is today. Yes I'm a pic whore.
    Here it is the night after my first stuck. Was side ways in a ditch up to the mud line. Notice the nice fender rot around the wheel wells.

    Prepping for tub removal. My friend and I snatched it off with the tractor and boom.
