    [/ QUOTE ]

    The guy towing the 2 jeeps had the trailer start swaying and the whole works flipped over. Good thing there was no oncoming traffic that time!



    Mine took a roll on labor day weekend. Parked it for lunch and it sat in gear for about a half hour or so.....then started rolling backwards. I tried to jump in it and got knocked down by the door and run over by the tire twice. 4 broken ribs and tore just about all the muscles off my fore arm. Im lucky it wasnt worse! I know cybersniper has some pics so hopefully he can chime in and post one of what she looks like now. Mine will be getting a parking brake before it goes anywhere now /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif



    Thanks for the info guys /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    73-87 wheelbases:
    K5 ................. 106.5"
    Shortbox Pickup .... 117.5"
    Suburban ........... 129.5"
    Longbox Pickup ..... 131.5"
    Crewcab Pickup ..... 164.5"


    I believe the 60-72 shortboxes were 115" and the longboxes were 127". I know the 67-72s were that length but I'm pretty sure the frames were the same all the way back to 1960. Don't know, I'm pretty inept about the pre-73 stuff. I just know 71-72s look awesome.

    Frame appears to be ok......ok enought for a wheelin truck anyways. It looks like it only flipped once. I am glad to see it held up as well as it did especially around where i cut the back off. The blazer seal section held up very well. Not sure about a cage but a parking brake for sure.
    Somehow my 2-meter antenna cameout of it without being broken....not sure how the heck that happened.

    Im thinking a pickup cab and some sort of box for it now. Not sure yet though. /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif
