    where did that trailer come from? Is that the same one after a rebuild or did you upgrade? I like the deck over design without the height of a deck over trailer.

    Look, I am tired of all yall whining about having "too many trucks/vehicles" if you dont want them, bring them to me and I will drive them (you pay the insurance and upkeep :deal: ). Imagine, posting pics "My driveway has two more k20's than yours" What a load of crap! Fill the raggedy looking trailer, and bring two or three to the east coast! Heck, Ill meet you in Raleigh.






















    Just kidding, I wish I could whine about my driveway being full. My daughter came with me tonight, after visiting a junkyard, and jokingly said to my wife "Daddy bought another truck for 300 dollars!" After seeing my wifes face, Im really glad I didnt.

    That's the same car trailer I've had since 1996, and it's had the steel deck like that since 2002. It probably just looks better looking at it from above instead of from the sides.

    Hey, I'm not complaining about having too much stuff :D . But the fact that there's too much stuff here and the fact that I'm broke right now keeps me from going and picking up the two other trucks I'm supposed to have sitting here right now.

    Not sure where to start either... motors are coming out of three of them, trannies and T-cases out of two of them, and axles swaps under one or more... and enough little details on each rig here that could keep me busy a couple days per vehicle or longer. All the engine stands in the garage are in use, and my plow truck frame is pushed forward between the house and garage limiting movement.

    That used to belong to another CK5 member K5Blazerus. He sold it and I went down to Bend, Oregon to pick it up about 3 weeks ago. A friend of mine wants the truck, but didn't have the money up front, so I ended up getting it and he's getting it from me as soon as he comes up with the money. I told him I get a few things off it though for going and getting it and the fuel it cost me. :D

    It is an '83 K20 and has a Goodwrench 350/SM465/205, Dana 60/14-bolt, 4.88 gears, Detroit in the rear, welded up front, about 7-8" of suspension lift, low tread 38x12.50 tires, and a Warn 9000lb Winch. Body is pretty beat.

    OK, cool. It does look pretty cool in those pics. Can you post up any close up shots of it?

    Hmmm, I actually don't have any real good shots of it right now. Here's what I have. I'll take more eventually.

    Yeah, he just didn't have time to wheel it anymore, so he decided to sell it.

    Yeah, it sucks that that had to happen, but it works out well for you.
