    Don't worry. In a few years, it will come. I've had my truck since I was 16 and now that I'm 19, it's coming along a lot better. I've finally got all my stuff straight after all these years.

    some might say "how can you put that much in your truck" to me- but it was bought for much less that most of any of my friends cars- and when i saw 77s i just looked quickly and thought it was another rig i'd seen- don't take that wrong 77- it is a very badass rig! dd?

    "All these years"?! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Anyway, I just saw the pics. I didn't realize you had rolled it till now! Now I understand the questions. Have you seen my build up pics on my web page? If not, check my profile. I'm way beyond anything shown in the pics, but it might give you some ideas, particularly with respect to mounting the cage/body and frame...

    Glad your ok.

    Yeah. Some people do as many mods as my truck has in a weekend. It has taken me four years to get it where I want it and I'm still not done. My truck really isn't all that special when you look at what some guys here do in a weekened, however, it's finally coming along.

    Build it right, build it once.

    I'm 19 and I have gone by that idea the best I can. My parents bought a bone stock (two-toned, 10bolt, all original) GMC Jimmy, March of 2000; and I drive what you see below on my sig. If you have a job and can mangage your money right, you can do it /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I reccomend keeping out of trouble too. My k5 project was on its way but I lost my license and got dropped by my insurance company so I am on high risk now. So yeah money is gonna be tight.

    damn that sucks. how did you manage that? not see it or something? and yea im 17..but ive only had my truck 5 goin 6 months..and im about to put a 4" on it..then next will come the 3/4 ton..if you can manage ur money and know wear to buy things its quite possible. just takes a little longer. the important thing though..with tearing apart and putting back together a couple blazerz and wrenching on my truck i learned a ton about these trucks!! and i still have tons more to learn..it never stops.

    I'm 20 and I'm currently building 3 trucks and havent started on the K5 yet. Do as much as you can before you leave home and have to pay rent, utilities, tuition, etc. My projects have slowed down a little because of it. Not that I spent a whole lot of money (compared to other people) anyway.
