    I've been lurking for a while, but have a reason once again to be here.

    I junked the rusty hulk of my '78 K5 Blazer last June after parting it out...It had 33's and a 4 inch lift. Also a 250 straight 6.

    I recently bought an '83 K5 Jimmy with 11 inches of lift, 39.5" boggers, 454 punched .030 over, 10:1 compression, Isky 286 cam and a whole page of other mods.

    I am a parts interpreter for a corporate subsidiary of GM and also on part time with one of the fire departments around here.

    My other 4x4 is a '95 Dodge Dakota, V8, 5-speed, mild mods.

    I have several other wheeled toys as well that are built for paved surfaces /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I wish I could say I built it, but it's so much cheaper to get one already finished.

    But, I've already started changing a few things on the truck to better suit my needs.

    3/4 ton units out of a '79 K20. So a slight improvement I guess.
