    im considering buying a diesel K5 or pickup and selling my current 88 k5.
    i know my location is probably a deal buster, but i'll give it a shot. for the right truck, i would consider driving a good bit.

    im looking for something is in really good condition, little to no rust.
    lifted or not, doesnt matter to me, i plan to lift it either way.

    thanks,
    james

    I've got an 84 K5 w/ a 6.2. Has Western Plow. Motor was swapped out Feb-ish. Has about 100K on J model engine. Truck needs a paint as it is primered. Newer tires (80%+), newer rebuilt 208, newer dual batteries, newer alternator. Body is quite good for age. Almost no rust.

    I have a very nice '79 Chevy K10 that has been converted to a K20 and a 6.2L diesel. Just got done putting in a 32 spline SM465 to replace the 10 spline version that was originally in it. New 285/75R16 tires on white mod rims. No rust, some dents though as it is a work/ranch truck. I am located in WA state but leaving today and going to be as close as Central, IL with it in a few days. I'd need to get $4000 for it to consider selling it, but I have a few other options for a 1 ton crewcab that I am interested in pursueing.

    I do have a perfect grill that needs to be put on it still.

    Try these guy.

    Talk to Tom @ Coleman's Surplus. I have personally been to there warehouse and they have some good stuff. I bought a Blazer tub and frame from them once. Plus you can get tons of other things. I don't know if these are in the price range you are looking for, but there usually in great shape with low mileage. They are located in PA. You could also try buying military surplus direct from http://web.govliquidation.com/index.html (I think that's the web address).

    This is in your neck of the woods...get registered so you can bid when it opens up. It looks to be in real nice shape and it will have the standard M1008 gear..6.2/TH400/NP208, dana 60/14 Bolt FF with a detroit in the 14 bolt and 4:56's. It's coded H7 so you really don't know what's wrong with it but if you get it cheap enough it doesn't really matter.

    kenny, i would be interested, the only thing tho is that i think i want something with a 700r4 because i have some 5.13s and a detroit that i want to use. it also gets a lot of city traffic driving so the clutch would be a pita.

    thanks guys. also if anybody knows of anyone sellin one let me know :D

    muddybuddy, if getting the truck becomes too much of an issue, I can get it the next time I drive home (I'm from Centreville). :D Now that I have a tow rig, I'm dying to use it!


    86CUCV, if he don't buy it, keep me in mind.

    I'm saying I might be able to bring it to you whenever I come visit the folks (in Centreville). Sorry, but not interested in a K5 - I was telling 86CUCV that I'd be interested in his rig. Get your junk sold, and let me know if you need help.
