    Well, I was on my wy to Autozone to buy some fuel line and thought "Hey, I should go by the junkyard and grab some door hinges so I can put my doors on....."

    So I go to the yard and I ask the guy where the 73-87 Chevy trucks are. He points me in the direction. I walk out into the yard about 300 feet and what do I see?

    An 84 K5 with both the doors off (makes for real easy access to the hinge bolts),a factory roll bar and a crusty high lift jack inside.

    After removing the hinges I walked to the office and asked how much for the hinges, roll bar and jack. It must have been the guys first day on the job because he quoted me $80.00 for everything.

    Sparks and smoke probably flew out of my wallet, because I grabbed my SOOOOOOOOO FAST.

    I thought it was a smoking deal. So I got my doors on and my new roll bar installed today instead of doing a shackle flip, like I had planned. Guess I will do the flip tomorrow. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    P.S. Taking the top off by yourself sucks butt /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif.

    I got a Dodge Dana 60 for $300 at a junkyard!!!!!!! The guy even came with the fork lift to get it for me. It was the only thing left on the frame except for the gas tank and the front leaf springs holding it on!!!!
