    The road to one tons

    My passion for squarebodys started when I was young, my earliest memories are riding in my dads red oxide primer 79 k5. It was just a rough blazer with a small lift and 33” mud tires that never seemed to let us down. It was his daily driver that we wheeled on weekends, there was just something...

    Shock up-travel to droop ratio

    Hello all, I’ve been looking around like crazy to find an answer for this question. I’ve been told the percentage of up travel to drop or sag should be 50% either way. I wanted to know if I had the option to get an inch or two more droop vs up travel should I? I’m running leaf springs (56”)...
  4. Grey Truck Build

    Grey Truck Build

    My dad traded in his other truck (1970 1/2 ton short box) for this one in 1999 to be his daily driver/work truck (I was about 6 years old). The short box was too small and he needed something more reliable back then. It was bone stock with the factory 6.6L 400 / TH350 and NP203. My dad later...

    14bolt thinkerin

    so not that this will happen any time soon I was just havin a think bc there's a 2001 disc brake 14bff lurking around my shop that I may truss up and lock for my k5. Now it seems everyone still uses the drum brake axle and convert for weight savings and performance. My question is, other than...

    Building "Nightmare" (78 GMC Jimmy)

    I figured I'd hop on here and make a build thread for my current project like so many of you guys have. I think after attending my first blazer bash my inspiration and desire to dig back into my truck was renewed. This is my 1978 GMC JIMMY that has gained the nickname Nightmare due to it...

    Us gear vs gear vender overdrive units

I want some overdrive cause 3000rpm isn't fun at 65. I don't want to run. Crappy 700r4 cause I hate the...

  12. 1979 K10 SWB "Jolly Green Giant"

    Offroad 1979 K10 SWB "Jolly Green Giant"

    I call my truck "The Price Is Right" for a couple of reasons. First off, I traded a friend's father for it. I fixed his wife's Pontiac, he gave me this truck. The second reason is because I am sourcing as much of this build as possible from either junkyards or classifieds or parts trucks, etc. I...

    Offroad '91 K5 Camper

    So I've been asked, err harassed to start a build thread on my 91 K5 here. I haven't hung out much here in a while, but maintained a lurker status checking up on my friend you all know as Larry (that nutty guy that put's 8.1 Big Blocks in all his stuff). That was the original opening line...

    '84 K10 The Animal *High Steer V2.0*

    Sorry for the lost photos, slowly going through and transitioning them over to CK5 hosting. Photobucket Can Suck a D!ck! A good friend of mine bought this truck back in 1998 when we decided to move to Lake Tahoe and ski bum it for the winter. It served it's purpose back then quite well but...
