    Here are some pics of my project so far. I got it last september and have been working on it since then. I recently reassembeled it. I have not done to many mods so far. It has mostly been about learning to work on the truck and maitnance. I have changed all fluids including the axles exept for the TH700. I'm still not certain of if i should do that since i'm not sure when it was changed last time.
    I have sanded down the old paint and welded in new metal where needed. The current paint is rolled on with a paint roller, but i think the result was pretty ok.

    It has got a 3" Black Diamond bodylift and 35" General Grabber MT tyres.
    Comming mods are dual 3" exhaust, tube bumpers and manual hubs.

    I think the server hosting the pics is too buissy... /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I read a thread some time ago where someone claimed that changing the tranny fluid could actually hurt more than it did good, if the old fluid was ok (not burnt). The new fluid could help freeing clogged up dirt that would get stuck where its not supposed to... /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif Dont know if its true, but i thought i'd try to find out for sure first. I will change the filter either way.

    Do you drive with those tyres all year round?Do you get much snow there in winter time?
    I'm considering Goodyear Wrangler MT/R tyres,but they might be little bit slippy on icy roads.Guess I have to get another set of wheels and mount my current BFG A/T's on those in case it gets really slippy here /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    They sure did. Both times. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif I was surprised of how fast they got here. I think it took about 1 week from the day i ordered.

    This coming winter will be the first on with the new tires on, so i cant really give any rewievs. We can get quite a bit of snow from time to time and i think these tires will do a lot better than the old bald Cooper Discover AT's. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Thank you all for your feedback! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Hej Magnus, en hilsen fra en Dansker i Mexico. Din K5 ser godt ud.

    Sorry everybody about the language, it's not that often somebody from Scandinavia posts here so I had to send a greeting. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
