Have decided it is time for my 1989 GMC K5 Jimmy to find a new home. It is mechanically stock with original engine (good leak down numbers), rebuilt transmission, cold AC etc but no lift or axle swap. Body work completed 3 years ago with very little rust repair required. Interior mostly...
I just bought a 77 k5. It has a one speed wiper switch on the dash with no washer. It has a floppy blinker lever that doesn't engage turn signals. I want to upgrade all this. I'm wondering if there's a way, while retaining the stock steering column, that I could move the wiper controls to the...
Hey everyone, brand new Gen 1 Blazer owner here. Very new to everything actually. I picked up this truck about 3 months ago and have been working with my father in law to get it running and road ready. I fell in love with the International Scout when i was in high school back in the 90's and...
Hi guys, installation of new tailpan went pretty well. Also replaced the rear inner and outer light posts. All is well except my tailgate doesn't line up quite right. It is tight on the left with a gap on the right. See pics
I didn't do the artwork either BTW and plan on painting it anyways. I...

All new parts on line have the 4-terminal on the back, but I am looking to replace with the original 5-terminal type. (5th terminal is common ground, but I would rather not splice the old leads.)...
Hi, folks! Relatively new to the forum, but have been lurking for a while.
After a fairly exhaustive search here and on line, I'm wondering if anyone knows of truck covers they either do or do not like that are made to fit the old K5s? (Or point me to a thread I may have missed that has any...

Hello to anyone reading. I figured it was time to start this build thread. So here it goes:
Here’s a summary of why I got the blazer to begin with: I’ve never really been crazy interested in fast cars, especially not new fast cars. My interests always lied in 4x4s, specifically old pickup...
Im in need of a doner roof and windshield frame for my 76 K5. I found a parts yard with a late 70s, early 80s cab but doesn't know for sure the year as it has no markings. Can I cut this roof at the B pillars and above the firewall to replace my roof and windshield??
Newbie here, having trouble figuring out how inner and outer rockers come together and how they attach with the floor. I have spent several hours reading posts on this subject and found some helpful ones, BUT, links are dead, pics deleted or not clear. Lmc outer and extended inner on hand, how...

Originally built back in 2015. One-of-One, custom ICON Reformer. Impossible to duplicate at this price, and we will not repeat the design anyway! That is part of why these custom ICON projects stay so special. Only 1200 miles since completed, the owner said it was too...
