    with my k10? it was my first vehicle, i kept having problems with it, tranny, tranny, tcase, driveshaft, body, tranny, driveshaft. so i desided to take it off the road and build the off road vechicle i wanted, 1 tons, high horse 355, sm465/205, super flexy leaf suspention, lots of body work, make it look very nice. i took it apart, body off the frame, suspention, everything till i got a bear frame. that was 2 years ago. once i got it apart, i started building a motor for it, got a 465/205, and had the 1 tons lined up.

    i was driving my s10 while i was doing this, then the motor blew up, so i desided to take the motor i took out of my k10, rebuilt it and put it in my s10. i still had the motor i built for the k10. well it didn't look like i was gonna get it done before winter. so i bought my k20. well i blew the motor in that, so i took the stock motor i rebuild for my s10 and put it in that. then the tranny went out and used the tranny i built for my s10 in my k20. so i took the motor that i built for my k10, changed the cam and plan on putting it in the s10.

    so now i only have the sm465/205 for it, plus i can't get ahold of my buddy with the 1 tons to see if he still has them.

    i don't have the money to put it back together, so it sits in my grandmas garage. ive been robing small parts of it for my k20. i want a capable 4x4 now and plan on doing something to my k20. the k20 is a better base, the bodys better, plus it runs and drives very well.

    should i take it to the scrap yard, suck it up and have 2 very capable vehicles, or keep the k20 stock and take 4 more years (thats what it looks like right now) to get my k10 together? im at a loose and don't know what to do, either does my family, but my grandma's been buging me to get it out of her garage. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I can't remember how many motors I've blown... My uncle can, he's the guy that kept getting me new motors or cars.

    KEEP IT, and build two rigs.

    Don't build the rig you love as your capable trail machine. Once you bash it, you'll end up like supersize75.

    I love my K10 but I love wheeling it more, so I'm going to build another rig for being a poser machine.

    Not sure where he's at now. He's probably wrenching.

    He learned the hard way that you can't have a nice rig and a trail rig all in one.

    He had way too much money falling out of his ass. He kept abusing his K5, blowing motors and whatnot. He then bought a real nice K5 and ended beating it to a pulp. He once got pissed off at the off-road performance of his K5 which didn't have a front shaft...just another idiot.... /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    i WANTED a nice rig, but my k20 is nice, its not perfect, still fixing the rust. i don't want to spend alot of money to just drive around, i am building it to wheel. if it gets a dent, i will admire that dent, it has a story, and probably never fix it. i hate rust though. its like my door on my k20, when the mirror got ripped off, the only thing im gonna fix is the holes and straighten the panel, but leave the dent there.

    its just i have 2 projects only room for 1, i spend alot of money on my bike, racing, gear, parts. i care a lot more about how my bike looks than my trucks, if my truck breaks down i will fix it the correct way.

    He supposed owned his own biz. But I'm sure his daddy was pitching in since all those pics of his rig were taken in a fancy-pants neighborhood. And he lived at home....

    Scrap yard?? /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif I wouldn't do that, later on you will realize that there were many parts on there you will need.
