    Congrats brother! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    I'm still trying to find a way down to Dixie this year...(working on finding/renting a tow rig to tow the truck down and back).

    Anyhow, hope to make it down again and see your new color!

    My Sisters husband sounds like he currently does the same thing as your going to be. They have him over in Germany doing it.

    Re: My K5 is now RED......and.......

    It aint gonna be so nice after Dixie /forums/images/icons/grin.gif Does look good though, thats some brite as RED. Had a busy day today, tore the 60 apart and cleaned and painted the housing and knuckles. The Detroit is installed in it by the way. Gotta get my steering arm for it and some seals are on the way.

    Also cut off the spring perches and shock mounts on the 14 bolt today, then ground them down smooth. Man I am shot out and blowing all kinds of black crap out of my nose.

    Hope this guy buys my tires and wheels so I can afford new tires. Rob are you camping, the wife is wanting to go this time and get a motel or one of those Tellico cabins.

    Re: My K5 is now RED......and.......

    Glen, we havent decided. It kinda depends on if we have the kids are not (2 this year, instead of 1). I dont think we will. Its just too much work because they are both so young. Let me ask Kristen what she wants to do, and I will get back with ya. I hope all your deals go through so you can thrash that 60! I have 4 sets of axle shafts put together with brute force (poor mans CTM's!) joints because I should have my Lock-right tommorrow. Another thing, since I will be towing, if for some reason the girls want to go "shopping" or mess around in town on one of the days, they can take the tow rig. Hopefully they will want to ride on the trails, but at least that is an option.

    Blazentank- I dont know what the actual color is, I dropped it of 12 July and said I want it <font color="red">RED</font color> and i will Pick it up on the 21st of Aug (went to the feild). 500 bucks was the cost.

    stump-puller- Sounds good, I should be there sometime around april or early may.

    Re: My K5 is now RED......and.......

    Neapco Brute Force is what I was using and got Keith to switch as well. We did not blow them as often as the Spicer ones, but still blew them /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif .

    Guy in our club was buying some u-joints from Ariziona Driveline (I think it was) and they grease from each end. The cross is not drilled completly though and the holes were not quite as big, have to grease every cap with a needle end for your grease gun. He never broke one (he did buy some CTM's recently and they are a good bit stronger, at least by the looks). The Arizona ones were deff beefier than the Neapcos or the Spicers thougy. Think he said they were like 30 to 50 bucks each.

    Let me know, we got 2 kids and I hope to have my mom be able to baby sit them for us.
