    I finally went out and bought a Digi Camera. I have not mastered the camera yet, so please bear with me fellas!!! I just installed a 4 in. Tuff Country suspension lift with some 33x12.50 SSRs on some 15x8 Rockcrawlers. I know she isn't much to look at, but she is getting there! Hope the link works, cause this is the first time I ever try putting pics up!

    It's Krylon OD Green from their hunters camo paint scheme. The original owner used it as a hunting rig and it was painted camoflauge when I bought it. I decided to give it a quick makeover and paint it one solid color. Not bad for 30.00 clams!

    I bought it from the original owner and he said that his brother welded the roll bar together.

    The rust is not bad at all! The usual rocker panels have to be replaced, but other than that there is minimal rust. This truck had been siting for 6 years without moving. I was getting my truck inspected at a local garage, when I looked under a tarp and saw my K5. I asked if he would sell it and I think he was glad to just get it out of his garage. I tried not to let him notice how excited I was about the Blazer! LOL When he said 900.00 bucks, I said give me about 30 minutes and I'll be right back. An oil change, new spark plugs, battery and she stared right up.
