    44" tsl on 12x16.5's
    52" springs w/ zero rates and ORD shackles up front
    64" springs w/ home made shackle flip and belltech lowering shackles
    '85 K10 cab on '89 K5 frame
    350TBI SM465 hydro bell NP205 D60 14BFF 5.13 spool welded
    home made hydro steering ORD cross over

    I tried to keep it on the cheap by using my own parts or things I got for free/trade. It sort of worked. :haha:

    Yah, a guy I know sold them to me with some Boggers about a year ago... ;) They won't be on here for long since I just ordered some 12 bolt H1's from USA6x6. I'm waiting for them to ship out sometime this week (I hope).

    I knew that looked like a cab on a blazer frame. Wow our trucks are pretty similar. both 89 k5's with an 80's pickup cab, Mines getting 52's/64's and one-tons with 5.13 gears this winter. What are your plans with the back of the truck? Leave it or flatbed it?

    I'm going to do my best to stay far away from them. I live on the CT border so hopefully I'll find some wheeling over there. Otherwise I need to find more friends with trailers.

    Same specs as mine, but my 42s don't look near that large. Must be the width of the tires.

    I took it out a few times and still need more trimming. Here's the winch mount partially finished. I'm adding superduty shock towers and adjusting my bump stops this weekend along with finishing the winch mount.
