86 K5 -"Jacob's monster truck" with a Cummins swap

  • Well I guess since everyone else has a build thread I might as well too. :D

    I have owned K5's for the last 18 years on and off (my 2nd car was an 83) and they are by far my favorite vehicle of all time. Last fall I decided I wanted to build another one and this time do it right , the way I always wanted to. I am pretty much doing this one by myself and from the ground up, I keep finding myself saying "if I'm going to do that, I might as well do this too."

    I have a 2 1/2 year old son, Jacob, and he is already convinced that this is HIS truck :D , hence the title "Jacob's monster truck". This will be "our toy" once it's done and since I plan on keeping this one, I will one day give it to him.

    Allright enough history , on to some pics!



    This was the truck the day I brought it home, I have been dealing with rusty K5's all my life, so this was not a local truck :D.
