Project "Double D Blazer" is under way!

  • So here she is, a 1982 K5, with a 6.2 Detroit Diesel, 700r4, NP208, 10 bolt gov-bomb, 10 bolt open. Body is remarkably solid. Got a 6 point cage, sliders under the rockers, square tube bumpers, exhaust through bumper with a stack (iewwww), a snorkel, no lift and 33X10.5 BFG AT's. Bought it with a blown trans for $1100. Luckily I had another K5 with a good trans and a bunch of other good parts that I was getting rid of, so I stripped it first.
    Dig the ghetto rigged grill with trailer signals. Don't worry, I took the good grille off my other truck.

    THE PLANS:
    4" lift plus 1" zero rates in front, added leaves in rear, move front axle forward 1.5"
    35X12.5 Maxxis Bighorns for now, and I will have room for more later
    12 bolt rear
    4.56:1 gears
    Some sort of locker in rear
    TURBO! From a 6.5 TD
    Maybe a safari rack
    A swing out spare tire carrier
    Some interior work
    Rhino line the sliders, bumpers, and intake snorkel
