    Looks good. I'm almost at the same point with mine. You motivate me to get it done. Same thing, waiting on the shackle flips to get the back end done.

    hey brandon what lift do you have on yours and what size tires are you using? that is almost exactly what i have roaming through my head in terms of ride height. Ill have a little bit more tubing and lighting though. ;)

    that pic was 37's and 4 inches of lift, but it rubbed on anything other than street driving. That pismo trip was my first time out with that combo. I trimmed it soon after that

    Hello all, I am NEW to this forum, but not new to the K5 world.
    Branndon, too funny, WHEN I had my 86 K5, I used to feel the same way about my white one, I coujld always relate to other White K5's. lol
    Nice looking rig ya got. I actually sold my K5 last year to a neighbor, as I decided to unload a car/truck or two, and regretted every minute of it.
    I recently drove down to Merced, CA and picked up a 1991 K5/V1500, whatever they named that year/model. Still a K5, and it is ALL stock with only 69,000 original miles on it. Got it from an older lady, yeah!
    Anyhow, just wanted to say I think you K5 is sweet. Reminds me of my 86, but I only had 35's.
    Here is my old one, which I no longer have :(

    and here is my latest acquistion, which is my project over the next couple of months. I will update the pic, as I begin the lift process, tires, nerf bars, etc.

    Branndon, what year is that Blazer? I'm wondering which year they changed the side mirrors? Mine has the black power ones, and I prefer the older style chrome ones. If you switched yours out from the power ones, was it difficult???

    I believe those mirrors were available in 90-91. Branndon's is/was an 89. He is building a 73 now.
