    Here are some of the latest pics of my Jimmy with its new 35s. They look so much better than the 32s! The rims are new, too. Just bought 'em from BlazerBoy. God I love my toys and this site!

    If you look closely in the first shot, you can also see my new ColoradoK5.com side window sticker. So cool!

    Well, tonight the Con-Ferr roof rack goes on with its compliments of lights. Stay tuned for more pics...

    Hey TX85,

    I am fairly new to the K5 arena and I want to first say that 4inch lift and the 35's make your rig look sweet. My question to you is that I have an 86 K5 Silverado and want to know what kind of lift you ran on your 85 because I want to run the same one????

    Chevy Powered!!!

    It's a Rough Country 4" lift with front and rear springs. I can't rave enough about it. The kit came with everything including a steering arm and shocks. I went with the full spring kit as my original rear springs had serious sag and I hate blocks. The only additional thing I got was stainless steel brake lines. It was easy to install and rides great. Get one! They're really inexpensive, too, compared to a lot of others. Check them out at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.roughcountry.com>http://www.roughcountry.com</A>. Order direct for the best price. Took 2 days to get to me. Search this site for Rough Country and you will find nothing but good things about them.

    Looks great. You'll love the M/Ts, I have the exact same size and everything and I love them. I also have a 4" lift.

    I love the ride. My rear had been sagging for so long (suspension that is), that its nice to be level and even again. The ride was good from the start, but the ORD swaybar correction brackets helped some more. I am VERY please and would recommend the full spring Rouch Country to anyone. Now, should I go with a 1" ORD body lift too? Hmmmm... never ends!

    Too funny that "buttman angle" fraze is still being used.

    <font color=purple> I started it so I may as well keep using it if it fits.
