    Nice rig, work well done !!!
    But please, go for bigger tyres !!!
    It's a shame to go from 31" through 32" and 33", just to notice 35" would do much better.
    Thought of some add. suspension lift ?

    Good job dude
    Your page is a little too wide
    I forget the #s but is in the header area to make it fit onto a regular browser size screen

    Also I would suggest getting a polyeurathane body mount kit made by http://www.energysuspension.com and get the black one they are impregnated with polygraphite to reduce poly squeek! I added it to my rig with body lift and made a great improvement!
    Good Luck

    Hey Espen just a thought, you should put a counter on your site to keep track of all the visitors, if you want to look at mine so you can get an idea.

    check out my new site, thanks Steve!

    Thanks for the input guys.
    Balou, I want 35's but I'l have to wear down these first. Actually I bought these used, that was the start of it all. I went from the original 28"'s to 32"'s and started feeling all bad....next thing I'm thinking lifts, lifts lift...LOL
    When my shocks go bad I will have the excuse i need to get the 4" suspension added on there, that would be so sweet.Then I could get 36"16,5 and then I could get....It never ends.
    Burt, I will fool around with the settings and try to downsize the pictures a litle. I still want details to show but maybe that is to much. And I defenetly see those rubber-boots going the next time major work is done under there. I dont have any squicks yet though.
    Michael, No I still dont get it. I hate car electric's but cant help fooling with it anyway. Spent 3 hours geting nowhere so I went inside and had myself a cold one instead.
    Chaka73, I tried to install a counter but maybe I forgot to save or somthin..
    Thanks again
    Espen

    I just think it's cool to see a Blazer in Norway. Too bad there's not more world members here like Espen. Do you get a lot of looks driving the K5? I've heard that the K5 is a hot item for the export market.

    Thank's Shawn. I'l bet there will be alot more in the future. The site is one of the first pages on Alta Vista when doing a search. It could be an idea to include some sort of world-map with marks on it. First time surfers could miss out on the fact that this is not just a Colorado happening. Also the friendly, helpfull general feeling of the board should be kept the way it is. I have been to boards where the "hard core" can freeze out newcommers cause of theyre sometimes "easy" questions.
    Too answer your question, a Blazerk5 is a rare truck in Norway. Due to the import-tax based on weight and horsepower these babies cost nearly 62 500 Dollars when new. And that was without backseats and classed as a "pick-upp." When the cars reach 10 years a backseat can be innstaled without paying for the oppgrade to stationvagon. (anyone want to ship me one, here they cost 922 Dollars with tax and seatbelts.USED!)

    I always say :"life is to short to drive ordinary cars" And yes I do draw some attention to myself. The bike is another side of it.
    He who dies with the most toy's, WIN !!.

    I think that is great! I didn't realize you were from Germany. I knew about Espen and Andreas but not the others. It would be nice to see a page of the K5's world wide.

    Espen-
    I'll keep my eyes open for a rear seat. With 2 kids, I have to keep mine. Maybe someone here has one. So what does $62500 cost in US currency?

    That's Europe for you. I listed the items that carry extra gov.taxes on them. Cars, smoke, alckohohol,a good botle of burbon( mmmm, Old Grandad) would run you 44 USD!!! and from that the gov.tax would be 80%.......

    Thats some serious cash Espen! I think you and possibly other world members may have the most expensive Blazers.
