    She's K5-napped my truck. She gets all bent out of shape when I talk about trading her car in. It was fun today when I told her about some special repo sale tomorrow and I wanted to check it out to see if I couldn't score my Dodge 3/4 ton 4x4 Cummins, even told her I'd put her plate on it, she still wouldn't go for it.

    1) Decent wheelin rig

    2) One of the few things that I feel almost small in (6'3")

    3) easy to work on and upgrade

    4) topless whellin

    5) Easy to crash in the back with the seat folded up when drunk

    6) Lots of room to make whoopy in the back

    Best multi-purpus all around truck you can own !!!!!! I'm into camping out in the sticks, and my K5 will be the perfect rig for getting to the spots I want to pitch a tent at, and is able to carry all my camping gear. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    wow, that must be a different kind of 6'3", I've gotta curl up in the back of mine to sleep back there (used to take naps at lunch in the parking garage ;-)), but whoopy, no chance for enough room for that :-(

    Because all the mods you could ever need or want are half price of a J**P. And I also like pulling them

    'cause I can start from a dead stop, travel 1 - 1 1/2 car lengths, hit a stopped 4 door '90 Buick park avenue - TOTAL it and just have a scratch on the rubber of my bumper guard (which may have already been there, I don't know for sure) /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Because a fullsize guy like me needs a fullsize truck. I just don't fit in heeps and such very well at 6'4" and 250lbs. Also I grew up with my truck in my family so I have always had it and learned to offroad and such in it. Not to mention that it is cool, different from all those posers in the Heeps, and it actually works offroad unlike most of the heeps.

    "Why?" you ask; because we are real men/women. Real men/women need big trucks. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    man, I'm 6' 0", but I know if I can do it in a Volkswagon Rabbit (backseat) or a 91 Riveria (front seat), then you should be able to do something in your K5 /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
