WL: 1986 K10 into 1983 (1984?) Suburban.

Overview

Years back my buddy Wade bought a 1986 K10 Silverado short box. It had a 4" lift, with 35x12.50x15's, a 400 with a TH350/NP208 combo behind it, and ten bolts with 3.42's. He blew out the rear axle, it sat, the wheels were stolen from it, it was drug home, and dumped in a buddy's tree line for a few years. Fast forward to the fall of 2009, and I went and drug it out of the trees, and over to the shop where I was working at the time.

So Chris bought this crusty 1985 K20, as seen here: https://ck5.com/forums/threads/87-v20-build.324313/ ...but he really wanted a V20 (or better yet, a V30, but who doesn't???) So I made him the trade of a less crusty, but non running 1987 V20 that I had. That way I still had a hydraulic four speed setup if I cut the truck up. Here is my crusty V20 I traded. Here is my new (to me) 1985 K20 on the hoist. Chris wanted to keep the 4.10 geared full floater that had been installed...

I've wanted a 1973-1975 K5 for years. Always been one of my dream rigs. The other day a buddy of mine posted a link to a 1975 K5 on Craigslist. The ad sucked. No pictures, no phone number, not much of a description. Just said 1975 K5 Blazer, no engine, $600. So I emailed the guy a few times. No reply. Was starting to lose interest. Than a couple weeks ago, I clicked on the ad again, just to get the email address, and try one more time. Upon doing so, I found the ad had been updated...

A couple of weeks ago I stumbled across this 1990 K5 for sale on here: http://coloradok5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=279984 It was almost exactly what I was trying to build, the price seemed right, and I was bored, so I bought it. Last Wednesday, two buddies of mine and I flew out to L.A. to drive it back home to Nebraska. The following posts are from a hometown message board that my buddy Joe made. I am just going to copy/paste them. He took 1209 pictures on the trip (he is kind of a...

I am going to transfer this over to here. It is probably of no real interest to anyone, but I have it on a local board, and I am always searching for it over there, for stuff on here. I figured I would just transfer it over. Martin
