    well been reluctant to post pics and info. but i have been in trouble before. LOL. anyway was hunting with a buddy at his ranch and noticed the k5 over in the bone pile. had not run in a year. made the deal and for 800 bones towed her back to dallas. she started right up after i charged the battery. in the pics it has 2" lift 33" tires, huge ramsey winch(btw what type oil would the winch take?), i have already cut the brush guard off the front and am working to fab something a little more modern up. i have upgraded to a 4" tuff county. black soft 8 wheels. recammed the 350 and threw on a eddy 600 carb and performer intake i had sitting around. headman headers and jegs turbos. i am currently reworking the dash with 2 5/8 gauges and leaving the factory speedo and gas. turned the a/c panel into a light switch panel and just sprucing it up. only rust i have found is right front fender, rockers, but the boxes seem sound and some minor floor. nothing too bad. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] will post some other pics when the dash is istalled. only have about 125. with gauges and a summit tack in the factory location. i know it has been done many times here but mabye i did it a little different. i just joined so i have not been able to look at pics until last week. LOL

    Where are all these $800.00 diamond in the roughs coming from?

    NICE FIND!!!!

    Is that a real half top or just a cut full top?

    Looking forward to MORE pic's.

    That is a sweet deal, it would be worth the doghouse for a few weeks if I could find one like that. As for the winch oil, send it to me and ill make sure its ok:wink1:

    thats all there is of the top, bought it that way. LOL. i have ordered a fastrack softtop. i believe from a vendor here. in my lurking days. gotta figure out what to do with it. if anybody is in dallas and needs something like this email me.

    am waiting on a speedo to get the dash in. when i have it done i will post pics.
