    I am thinking of maybe buying a 2wd K5 and would love to see some pics of ones that have been lifted. If anybody has any or knows of a good link that has some please let me know. Iam thinking of the Fabtech lift and some 33's.

    I'll sell you a lifted 4x4 and you won't have to do anything. I'd buy the 2x4 only to slam. Their had to come by, where did you see it.

    I'm with ya on the lifted 2wd thing, the IFS definately takes the big jumps better. I often consider doing this being that damned near all the wheelin I do is in the dunes and I launch my 4x4 K5 a lot. "Michael" on this site has a cool site with a couple different 2wd's, check it out: www.jmartin.net/goose/

    Hey thanks for the plug Blazinaire! I have about 8-10 2WD Blazers on my site....I would really check into the Fabtech kit...."Dave's Blazer" on my site has a Fabtech kit and he says the front is really stiff. He is in the process of getting new springs from Fabtech.

    If your just after IFS you could probably put a frontend off a newer chevy truck(88 and up I belive)on a 4x4 or even 2x4 Im not sure if it would work or how easy it would be but just a though. I just really dont like lifted 2wd's

    Blazinaire has sent me there. Its has some good info.
    Does the fabtech kits reall offer more travel? WHat would be your ultimate truck to build a pre runner out of?

    The Fabtech kit gives a little more travel, but it mostly all "up" travel with almost no "droop", so it rides poorly.
    Ultimate...try this for a Chevy
    Or this for a Ford
    More Ultimate Prerunners:Prerunners etc.

    The "perfect" prerunner chassis is in all reality a twin I-beam F100/F150 - No A-arm IFS offers as much travel with as little engineering. Truth be told though, anything has possibilities, limited only by your budget and imagination. I saw a full prerun Daihatsu Rocky in Barstow last summer, engineered by some gloriously deranged soul /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif
