    Can someone measure from the axle tube to the frame on their K5 for both the front and rear axles for me? I am trying to figure out how much lift I have front and rear on my project truck. Thanks. :)

    Thanks! Looks like 2.5" up front and 4" in the rear; wondered why the rear was not sagging. :D

    You want some rear slider windows for that thing Pete? I have my old topper from the white k5 lying here and Im not doing anything with it, you can have them. Or I'll trade you for a sticker. :D

    Not putting slider windows in the truck, I hate them. I just threw a set out and I have another set that I need to toss. Which sticker do you want?
