    Been browsing the forums for a while and have learned alot from what you guys have posted. I bought the former "MUDFROG" K5 and have been wheeling, repairing,and modifying ever since. Its great. So far I replaced the 700R4 (caught on fire), to SM465 with NP205 case hydro clutch setup. Rebuild 14 bolt (hub bearing bad, ring gear ate rollers from bearing) NOT GOOD! Olive drab rattle can paint job, and no more doors. COOL! Thanks for the great posts and tech articles and hope to talk with everyone here.:D

    Thanks for the reception! I had no idea there were so many others like myself that love the smell of gear oil on their clothes, bolts that won't break loose, rust, exhaust fumes, hate jeeps, and enjoy a sharp sawzall blade. Did I mention hate jeeps!

    welcome aboard amigo... I hate heeps too. They suck, and their owners seem to think its a good idea to run around buying up all kinds of good CHEVY parts to put them in their rigs. That drives prices up and makes stuff harder to find for us real chevy people. grrr!

    ok, rant over. :thumb:
