    Some of you might remember the "hispanicpanic" from many moons ago.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Specs:
    75 GMC Jimmy
    12/44 Detroit rear/Lock Right front
    35" SSR's
    350 stock that runs like a top:bow:
    350/205 combo

    The truck had literally been driven EVERYDAY since it was bought new in 75, and the last 5 was wheeled in moderate-moderate/hard every weekend. It has been down for about 6 months and in that downtime it has recieved new front floorboards, rockers, front fenders,paint (bedliner--looks pretty cool)radiator support, body mounts and soon upulstury (sp?) if you dont remember what it looked like you can find it on the y2k5 run under the welcome sign:D

    this is what the rust looked like (i dont have any pics of it new--but it looks new:wink1: )

    [​IMG]

    and my drunk friend Zeeks' blazer (thats what he wanted me to say.)
    specks:

    86? blazer
    383 stroker w/ corvette heads and wicked cam.
    38" Toyo Open Country
    60/14 4.56 locked rear
    Custom shackle flip
    Custom TC crossmember
    Custom half cab off of a pickup
    Dovetailed ever so slightly
    Custom rear cage

    So hopefully we will all have out trucks running this summer (after 2 years(knock on wood)) Definately going to make a trip to Las Cruses:D

    Both very nice k5's. I really like the 86. Does the halfcab conversion come off or is it permanent?

    It bolts right where the factory top bolts onto the top and it kinda hang on the bottom, but surprisingly it dosn't rattle a bit.

    yes to both of the ?'s--I'll have to cruise over to my buddies to get pics of the cage. I helped mim build the origional cage for the complete bed and 3 months later he dove'd it--he actually used all teh existing tubing from the origional and only had to bend 2 tubes.

    as soon as my truck is running we are planning a trip to Cruses so it wouldn't be too far of a drive--we are for sure running Broad Canyon and mabye a couple in the Chile canyons. I don't know how many truck are going with us, but we could definately handle a couple more people. Ill let you know when we figure everything out.

    Danny,

    Good to see you post, the Panics rig looks good from when we saw it last time. Very cool. Tell him Joey and I said hi.

    We still want to get together, but Springers is still working on Dwayne's jeep, and until we get it finished, we are going to save our wheeling for NM. Dude it totally sucked not wheeling with you guys this year, but the next time, we are going to stay for a while. Wait until you see Dwaynes jeep when it's done.

    I see you scored a tow rig also, very cool, can't wait to see some pictures. Post them as soon as you get a chance.


    Say hi to everyone from the Arizona group!

    Rob

    Add me to the notice list when you guys plan Cruces trips. Most of our crew made it down there for Chilie Challenge and I am always up for another group run.
