WL: 1990 K5 (California to Nebraska on 38" rubber. (WARNING: Lots of Pics))

Overview

A couple of weeks ago I stumbled across this 1990 K5 for sale on here:

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 camera buff), and these are the 300 some that he narrowed it down to.

Since I was bored last week, Marty (82355) decided to buy a Blazer in Lancaster, CA and drive it back to Lincoln, NE. He thought it would be good for me to get out of the house, since I've been laid up for 6 weeks with a ****ed up ankle in a cast. John (Hillbilly) somehow snuck onto the airplane, and away we went.

It was nice once we pulled up out of the fog in Omaha.

Lovely evening for a flight.

We passed over several towns between Omaha and Dallas.

I think this is somewhere in Kansas.

Landing in DFW.

This is how we roll. Drugs and cash, baby.

Pretty.

Your humble narrator.

Howard Hughes has a shopping mall named after him.

We took a cab there for lunch.

I had a tasty burger.

This tree looks an awful lot like a cell tower. I'm not convinced.

He looks happy.

Marty had to explain the numerous modifications to the awe-struck Hillbilly.

Rust inspection. None was discovered. Thanks, California desert!

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...

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. Martin

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...

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
