    Im looking at a new trailer for the K-5, what do you think? The guy wants $800 which includes the trailer and an 85 s-10 Blazer with blown engine. The Blazer will get the original runnig gear from the K-5 which includes the 350 engine 700R4 NP208 and the axles. This will become a mud drag/bog truck. Body is in great shape with little or no rust. Add roll cage and go boggin. Here are some pictures of the trailer.

    He's selling that too. He's also selling a 1969 Plymouth GTX with a built 440 and a Holley 950 projection 4DI on it for 12,500.

    Good deal, but I dont see any brakes! I dont see the surge brakes, nor electric brake away kit, which is usually on there if its not a surge type. MAybe Im just not looking hard enough. If it doesnt come with brakes (it looks like it used to be used as an industrial hauler of some sort, mini bobcat or something), which means it was probably pulled along by some 1 or 2 ton truck, and didnt get any extra braking. I'd highly recommend retrofitting brakes

    Ya it has only one braking axle and hasn't been used since he got it 7 years ago. I am going to pass on the trailer but might buy the S-10 for $300 or so.
