    Just curious. Have anyone here restored a K5 to it´s original shape, I mean like when it came out from the factory? Perhaps not all of you are building rockcrawlers and mudmonsters.
    Would be nice to se some pictures how they looked like when they were new.

    Hopefully soon I'll get started on mine. It will be mostly stock, except for 33" tires. Don't hold your breath for pics though, it will probably take several years to get done.

    It did get some upgrades during the rebuild and its getting regeared and lifted this month. got it in 97-98, 98-99 done the body work, painted in 2000 and it was/is a daily driver. My parents bought it new in 87 and I have every bit of paper work, order sheet, build sheet, paper plate, org sales receipts and warrenty work! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
