This is going to be a slow build, but I hope this thread gives me some more motivation if a discussion is started/interest.
I have had this k5 since I was 17, I am 30 now and it has gone through a few different phases, I will give a quick history. Its been through 3 or 4 motors, 3 trans, 2 transfer cases and a few axle configurations since then.
When I got it, had to redo the floor completely, my dad and I tackled it with no experience doing any welding/fab work.. but came out decent!
Of course, being 17 or 18, you gotta get some offroad lights..
Then I progressed to some 33" mud terrains
Then came the cheapie 4" rough country lift..
Of course, reading CK5 didnt help.. so I tried my hand at fabrication...
terrible front bumper.. but hey, learning..
Then I "upgraded" to a dana 60 rear, D44 front and 35" tires on a home brew shackle flip.
Naturally, I got bored of the paint job, so I spray bombed it and put 37" humvee tires on it.
Then traded those for some 38" TSL's I believe, also I think I swapped a 14bolt in sometime then.
Drove it to Maine, did some wheeling, drove it home.
Tossed in 1tons, a proper shackle flip and made this bumper...
Also some proper seats
Some rock sliders.. I think my repaired rockers rotted out by the time I was 25.
I ended up clocking the 208 and building a square front driveshaft.
