    second pic is with 38" tsl's 8 lug 10 bolt and a 14bff, 91 front clip, put the visor on, put a new cam, intake, headers and exahust on it,new doors. blazer bucket seats, also put in an sm465/205.

    Not a K5 but a K10
    Here she is in October 2001 when I first bought it, bald 235s, no tailgate, grill...sitting on the half deteriorated bench seat, no lights inside of the cab worked.
    [​IMG]
    This is how it sat in our garage the summer of 2002 in various stages of body work awaiting paint
    [​IMG]
    Here it is two weeks after paint, and I had gotten all my trim on, still bald 235s, no dash, I had put in a refurnished seat but I cant find the pics of the old seat.
    [​IMG]
    This was how the original carpet looked
    [​IMG]
    after I bedlined the floor
    [​IMG]
    this is from about a month ago, Since paint I have added two 6 inch chrome lights, a toolbox and CB whips, also a Ag Hitch
    [​IMG]
    I plan on getting a new 6.2 motor in it, a new 700R4 with mods or a turbo 400 tranny, 14 bolt rear axle, Dana 44 front or swap my 10 bolt to 8 lug on the front. Then get 4.10 or 4.56 gears and 35s, and 4 inchs of suspension lift.
