    Just got her today found her on craigslist. I hope to make her a part time daily driver. I am the 3rd owner the guy I bought it off never even titled it. He put the lift and tires on and said he drove it the most 120 miles. My plans are to swap in 3/4 ton axles the 36 inch mickeys and 3.73 gears suck. All in all the k5 is pretty smooth on the road even with the 8' spring lift. Here is the add and some pics. Anyone up for a 3/4 ton swap. I'll supply the beer and barbeque :D First I need to score a d44 and 14 bolt. Hey Shawn Supersize75k5 after seeing your awesome work all these years hope to meet and get your expert craftsmanship to use on my k5 :bow:
    Nice job on the 86. Think you want to do another full vertible:eek1: So what do you guys and gals think.

    1989 K5 SILVERADO, BRAND NEW 8" ROUGH COUNTRY ALL SPRING LIFT AND 36X15.50 MICKY THOMPSONS, FUEL INJECTED 350, ALL NEW A/C SYSTEM, REBUILT 700R4 TRANS, POSI REAR, NEW RADIATOR, FUEL PUMP, TIRES HAVE LESS THAN 100 MILES ON THEM. INTERIOR IS VERY CLEAN, FRONT DRIVE SHAFT NEEDS TO BE LENGTHENED.RUNS EXCELLENT
    VERY, VERY CLEAN........... THE CLEAR COAT IS BURNT ON THE HOOD, HAVE $700.00 EST FROM A& B AUTO BODY TO PAINT WHOLE TOP HALF. BODY IS EXCELENT. NO RUST EVER.. POWER WINDOWS, LOCKS, CRUISE, TILT, AND EVERYTHING WORKS.

    Thanks the interior is in excellent condition. Only thing that does not work is the old tape deck. This is the cleanest blazer I have owned.

    I remember considering looking into it but I wasn't sure if I could talk the wife into it, besides, I just picked up a "new" '74 myself. I was pretty certain she wouldn't let me have 3 Blazers. :D

    This k5 is going to stay clean it's to nice to beat up. This is my 4th k5 I have owned 2 73 and a 75 I sold my first 73 to my cousin he still has it. Man I wish I would of never sold it. Bought a 75 and then sold it to buy a truck. I just sold another 73 that I had bought for my son and me to work on although he did not have any interest. He is only 14 will see maybe in the future.
