    Been working on my K5 ever since I bought it back in August of last year. I've just recently acquired a set of 12.5R20 (41") Michelin XLs and 20" Staz Works beadlocks. I had 38.5 SXs for a few months then decided to go with the 20" Michelins. My specs are 4" TC front springs, 2" Hill 4wd shackles, SS brake lines with a Dana 60 4.56 gears open carrier. Rear has 57" Furd springs, Ecobit flip and 6" shackles, SS brake line and 14FF 4.56 Detroit locker. One inch ORD body lift, 200amp powermaster alt., red top Optima and I have trimmed my fenders back for the 41s.

    Here are a few pics of the tires and wheels, should have them mounted on the K5 by the weekend. Then I will post some pics of them mounted on the K5.

    Oh and I bought a tow rig for OL14BLAZ so it will be more of a offroad rig from now on. It's a 2000 Ford F350 PSD 4X4 crew cab swb 6spd. Here's a crappy pic.
