    Welcome to the Brotherhood. Pretty nice find there, sounds like a good deal to me. With that 4" you can go with 35's without too much of a problem. That's what I have on my 86.

    Heck you can go bigger than that, but that k5s to pretty to chop up. Nice clean daily driver. Tell us what are you wanting to do with it, and we'll be able to spend your money better for you. ;) BTW, in the future this kind of post would usually go better in the garage, and you'd get more response, no biggy though.

    I like that color combo. Yeah, the steps look like crap on there. Put them in as small a box as possible with all the mouting hardware and ship them to me.:D


    Relax guys, they are for the crewcab, wifey needs to be able to ride as does the mother-in-law.:wink1:

    Install some rock sliders, bumpers and mud tires and it will look meaner.

    What he said ^.

    Tires with agressive tread and some beefy bumpers go a long way toward a "mean" look. You can probably run 35's too...although they might rub a bit if you flex the truck out regularly.

    Clean ride though and welcome to The Obsession :)
