    The rims are probly stock but there 15x10 so I dont know for sure , the former owner had them on the truck when i got it,I think there called renegades??Try to get some pics of the motor later that's what makes it nice...

    Stats are:350, 30 over flat tops, Crane, Accel, Edelbrock, K&amp;N, Headers , Dynomax 2&amp;1/4" duals. Locker in the rear and slip in the front, 3:73 Gears,built t.350 with NP203 P/T kit custom drive lines etc. always something else to build, go faster and farther....never ending project!! And I love it!

    The lift is a 4" EZ-ride with dual shocks in the front and singles in the rear, 33" (sidewinder)Buckshot mudders, the former owner started the build and I was able to get it from him and finish what he started, I drive it everyday atleast fifty miles and have know complaints except the fuel bill, 7mpg.It is a 78 with the front clip of an 87' Todd basically put the cosmetics together and I finished the wheelin aspects of the truck, mechanics....I actually traded him a 90' toyota for the K5, what a steal, since I sold my last K5 I've been kicking myself for it, and when the chance presented it's self I jumped on it........his loss, I had 3,000.00 in the Toy which I bought to help out a friend in need and he had well over that in the Blazer so I can't complain!

    That is a nice rig. Is that a Warn Classic bumper?

    Nice truck, but what I really noticed was how lucky you are to have such a nice looking family. Must make you proud to have this family AND a K5. You are one lucky man!

    A good firm grip is my idea of gun control!

    Todd is here in Haines, he is currently running/part owner in an internet provider...( wytbear.com) He is a really cool guy, i took him fishing out here by my house and we caught 15 or 20 silver salmon in about a half an hour, yesterday, we had a blast, I told him just because he gave up his K5 for a toyota didn't mean he wasn't allowed on the site, maybe he's............ ashamed..LOL. I would be, I will tell him to get on here and haller at everyone.

    I believe that it is a classic ...not for sure though, came with the winch I bought from an old timer here, which I've since had to completely rebuild...but works great now and much more dependable, and yes I DO have a great family!!!!!

    Nice deal! As I recall Todd had that truck right! Guess it's up to you to send us the first snow shots of the year. Heard they got 5 inches in Anchorage last week. You get any yet?

    Yeah, I hit the Kenai and Anchor last month for silvers (dollies and trout) on the fly ... boyhood dream come true!

    I like the rims. They're not factory, but that style was pretty popular in the 80's. Several companies made them. I have a set of Hurricanes which are very similar, but have more spokes.
    They might be Vortex's, made by Western I think, though as I said, they were made by several companies.

    Yeah Todd started the build and I've since finished it pretty much ( less a few more thousand $$ ) and yes we have had snow here....3 inches for a couple days last week....about the same time as up north, will get some pics up when it gets deep and we start to play in it!!

    I picked up a set of those rims about 6 yrs ago from a guy. He told me they are made by American Racing, and just called them Turbines. I really like the look of them. I just bought a new set of steel modulars so the Turbines are for sale now. You cant buy anything like them new any more, so hopefully they will go fast
