    The K5 has seen better days in the north east, a lot of people sold their trucks do to rust and frequent break downs; plus the heavy duty upgrades really cost a lot of money. I was planning on building my new one up as a dual duty truck, but decided to build a tube chassis based rig or possibly a TJ that I can use as a platform for making parts.

    With that said, the new rig will have the following parts installed in it.

    TBI 350
    TH400
    GM203 & GM205 joined together by an ORD Doubler.
    Dana 60 with 5.13's, ARB, Full Hydro
    14 bolt ff, 5.13's, detroit, disc brakes
    38" TSL's
    DIY4X beadlocks with my own design for the rings.
    Plus some more junk too.:D

    I will definately try and make this one. I was originally trying for Blazer Bash, but I quicky saw that as no possibility. Should be done Phase 2 by beginning of February.
