I'd appreciate any insight and advice y'all have to offer here; I'm trying to figure out the most cost-effective (in terms of wheeling performance) upgrades for my K5; I've got a tight budget, so everything I do has to count. My K5 is an 87 350/700R4/208 with stock axles, differentials, wheels, and 31x10.5 tires. Current work done to date on it includes; new cam (comp cam 270H) and heads (stock 350 heads), and Warn manual lock-outs. The cam and heads I got for free (started that project because of bad valve seals and a worn valveguide). I use the truck as a DD and for general wheeling; little bit of mud, a bit more on some trails -- I plan on pretty much sticking with that, I have no urge to attempt rock crawling until I get more experience. More ground clearance would be nice, but we all know lifting generally comes with new tires/wheels and you really can't put that much of a bigger tire in without lifting. Are there any old trucks that I'd be able to pull the leaf springs out of to get a few inches out of? And what would be more effective, investing in a winch, or getting a limited slip or locker for the diffs? Both are nice, but one has to come first (and the other would be a long while away).
