    I'm fixing to acquire a 75 K5 Blazer from my late brother's estate. It has a fiberglass top and Dana 60's front and rear. It's a nice ride but my brother beat it to death. I've spent the last 6 years dragracing so I'm new to the offroad scene. What I need to know is if there are any good books/web sites that can give me tips on how to do a frame off restoration. If you know of any send me an email to MobileDevotion@yahoo.com. Thanks

    You've already found the number one source for info on K5's on the planet. [​IMG]

    Go ahead and ask anything you'd like to know...there is very little that has not been done and or discussed right here in this amazing group of people.

    There are definitely a LOT of sources. But like the guys said--this is THE number one source. Ask and you shall receive!

    You just found the online encyclopedia of k5 restoration. These folks are amazing in what they know about the vehicles, from one end to another. If these people don't know about it it doesn't exist!! Welcome and ask questions!

    Welcome to CK5... however you simply need to part out the Blazer and give me the axles. That's the solution! [​IMG]

    How can I miss you if you won't go away? [​IMG]
