    Its a good running complete K5. My buddy wants the motor out of it, and will give me the rest for 300.00. It has a D44 and 14FF in it, with the 350, TH350 and 203 t-case. I am not sure of the exact year of the truck, but its a half cab with the single round headlights. What gear ratio would you think it would have? I will probably grab it from him and part it out for parts as soon as I can.
    The windshield is perfect, will it fit into an 85 K5? I will also be keeping both diffs, the tires will go onto my wifes Ram, and it has newer model reclining seats in it so those are mine too. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
    I guess I just talked myself into buying it... hehe
    Thanks for any replies.

    Since the 14FF never came from the factory in a K5, there's no telling what the gear ratio might be. 14FF's came with everything from 3.42's to 4.56's. Time to pull a cover and look for yourself. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
