    1. Buy a K5 from a lady who thinks the transmission is shot.
    2. Fill the transmission with tranny fluid thinking thats all thats wrong.
    3. Buy a 6" lift with rear blocks because its all you can afford? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
    4. Buy 4 36" tsl's and put them on your 10 bolts with 3.73 gears.
    5. Spend your money on exhaust when you need a new engine.
    6. the truck is loud and sounds pretty cool.
    7. F-up your tranny with those cool new tires that are too big.
    What to do:
    1. sell all of the cool stuff you bought and start over starting with a 4 speed and 1 ton running gear. and now im on my way "oops did I say now im on my way" /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Sometimes its better to wheel with what you got, then to wait 2 years, and not wheel at all during that time...

    Oh I still wheel the crap out of the truck how it is. Its slowly coming together the right way only parts are breaking faster than I can fix them, because I didnt have the patience at the beggining to do it the right way /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif.
