    I know I shouldn't gloat, but here goes. I was just given an 86 K5 Siverado. The inlaws let me have it. Mom inlaw kept saying how bad the thing is, all I see is potential.. It needs a little body work due to rust, but other than that I love it. Question: Anyone use JC Whitney body parts? Also, my truck just failed inspection due to the frame/cross member tail gate mount. How hard is this to replace? Just from reading the posts here I can see this is a great site with a wealth of information.

    I've used JC Whitney Rocker panels and they seem to be high quality and fit well.

    Welcome, it'll be nice to have a police officer on board to bounce a few ideas off of from time to time.
    www.yearone.com
    www.longmotor.com ??? I think- or LMC.com
    paddockparts.com
    these companies all have great catalogs for chevy's and they all have just a bit different selection.

    Hey you got yourself a profile!! Welcome![​IMG] If you can't find the answer here you won't find it anywhere. These guys are the best!!
    That area of the truck is kind of a bi$%* to fix because the fuel tank is right there. So you would probably have to drop the tank to do your repairs. Welding and gas don't mix very well [​IMG].
    I have'nt had the oppotunity to use JC whitney yet but I've heard their stuff is pretty good.
