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.

    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
