    Look under NEW 89 at the bottom of the page.
    Here she is .. the new to us 89 K5. Just picked her up on 10/05/2002 in Houston..
    Paid $2,900 for it.. and it's darn near perfect.. body is straight, no rust, interior almost perfect..
    Plans for it are 2.5 inch lift and 33's.. that' s it..

    Let's see.. here's how we got to this point..
    sold my 83 white blazer to buy the 78 k30, traded the 78 k30 to get the 83 Diesel, sold the 83 Diesel to buy this 89...
    Oh.. when does it stop...
    Let me know what ya think.. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Ric.. thanks for the comment..
    But.. this truck is a keeper... seriously..
    owned by a 43 year old man, well maintained and beautiful in and out...
    A mild lift and 33's... then she'll look even sweeter..

    I like it. Just curious...what are the 4 guages mounted under the ash tray for? (Tranny temp, tach, ?)? Looks nice. I like the 2.5 33" combo/look. I'd stick with your decision.
    Make sure to snap some more pictures when finished.
