    had to improvise to test my suspension flex, make sure everything is moving around okay. its hard to find natural obstacles here in the flatlands of florida.

    Hay Mt did you notice if the cage took the slop out of the body or was your truck converted the same time it got the cage? My 75 has so much flex in the body I have to retighten the windsheild header bolts after wheeling. My plan is to tie the cage into the windsheild header and door post to take the flex out of the body.

    What do you need a ramp and rocks for? Looks good, only thing I see is that that nice paint and them rockers might not be so smooth and straight after TELLICO!

    Thas what they make welders and bondo for, not to mention the Wagner Power Sprayer, thinking of using a roller myslef to give it some texture.

    thanx guys,
    you give me the motivation i need to continue my quest for the ultimate k5. i have noticed a bit of extra body flex since i softened up the suspension. maybe i need to tie the cage into the header, im not sure. a couple of things i would like to do: tuck the transfer case up further into the body for better clearance, bob the tail about 10 inches, and make some half doors.
    as far as body damage goes, i built this thing to have fun. i have about four new fist sized dents already, thanx to tennessee. talk to you later,

    Trail dents definitely add character. The first one was the hardest to deal with but now that it's out of the way it's alot more fun on the trail!!
    BTW, I'm on dent #7 :)

    Trails dents are just proof!!!I took out the hole pass.side on 21 road last summer.The taillight was torn right off.Modified the tail gate with taillights so it won't happen again.Covered the old tailight holes with sheetmetal and painted to match the camo.Brady
