    I saw an 76 K5 the other day that was lowered. I though I was going to have to pull over and get sick.

    Don't you buy no ugly truck!

    C'mon dude, to each his own! At least the guy has good taste in buying a K5. Anything after that is personal preference. I've seen some really cool lowered Blazers! Just cuz its not what I like doesn't mean its not cool![​IMG]

    I had a '78 2WD a few years back that I wish I had today as my daily driver. Lowered properly, wide-a$$ tires all around, that thing handled like a Camaro.........maybe better. I loved that rig, couldn't keep both it and a 4X4 so it went. But since I sold my Bonneville a couple of weeks ago I will be looking at a daily driver soon..........and a 4X2 K5 is one of my "potentials".

    I have a 2wd and I personally do not care for the lowered, there is just something about the stance of a K5 on the factory 31's or bigger I have always loved, but to each his own. Some have bashed us for owning a2wd K5, but I can count on 3 fingers the nuber of times I could have used 4x4 in my life, so for me I only needed a 2wd for a daily driver. Currently my truck has 275/60/15s on it, and when it is time to replace them I will go with some 32's, it just looks like the fender wells doesn't have enough rubber under them.

    Well, I wasn't really bashing him. I just dont get the lowering of a 4wd vehicle except that maybe they do this to 4wd's now so that if they get stuck on a speed bump or pulling into a sloped parking lot they can use the 4wd to recover. LOL!!!

    Don't ya hate that Sparky?

    I originally thought you had seen a lowered 2WD Blazer, but if it was a lowered 4WD then I don't get it either...

    Oh and Blazer 79...if the only thing you can think of is to make a personal attack its prolly better you don't post it.
