    Pictures of my \"new\" \'87 K5

    Finally got the 'puter fixed (don't ask) so here are some pictures of my newest ride. (Yes Shaggy - the running boards are gonna go!)

    Looks real good...it'll look much better without the "mall sliders" though. [​IMG]

    Is it good mechanically?

    Yeah. The 350 has a few miles on it - but nothing a good valve job won't cure. Has a small oil leak somewhere. I need to steam the engine to find it. Temp and oil pressure gauges don't work - but most likely it's the sending unit. I was reading up on how to retreive the codes. Now that'll be an interesting task. I have a substantial list of things I want to do (as well as the "needs" list). Four inch lift (shackle flip) and some black rockcrawlers are real close to the top.

    Retrieving the codes is the easy part...it's making sense of them that's hard.

    It certainly looks like a decent truck, well worth the time to make it 'right' and build it up!

    Looks pretty good .. awfully familiar looking .. I agree needs a lift and to loose the running boards.

    Nice lookin' ride, but I don't think it warrants the name "behemothII" just yet... Perhaps behemothWannaBe? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    LOL !!! Yup - "behemoth" is a little presumptous at this stage!

    Looks a lot like the '90 Suburban I bought. Weenie tires, running boards, etc. I took the running boards off about 3 days after I bought it! [​IMG] Now there's a 454, 14-bolt FF rear, 8-lug 10-bolt front and 4-inch lift waiting for it in the garage. [​IMG]
