    Wanted Torque Rods for 89' K5

    FOUND I'm looking for torque rods that assist lifting the tailgate. This is for a 1989 Blazer K5. Both of mine are broken. My kids can't keep the tailgate from coming down too hard. I don't wanna break my back window. Not to mention that my electric Windows works and I want to keep it that...

    CA Corvette-ish Exhaust manifolds

    I really like these manifolds and spent a bunch of time cleaning and coating them only to find a cracked engine block. Since they don't fit a big block, hoping someone else can enjoy them. Center dump, almost the same as stock 69-72 manifolds except the outlet is larger at 2.5" and are...

    Anyone interested in joining for the new year? I think it would be cool to have a K5/square body group show up. https://www.facebook.com/events/1820167848224272/?ti=icl

    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...

    I have been trying to sell 2 K5s for a while now and have had little to no interest. One is a running and driving 1990 Jimmy 6.2 diesel automatic, the other a 1991 Blazer body with zero rust from the roof parting line down. I do mean zero. 14 bolt semi floating rear and 8 lug gm corporate...

    85 K5 Build (What to do this summer...)

    So this is my first forum, and I wanted to share everything I have done and what my struggles were. My dad purchased the truck in 1986 and put the 4 inch lift and two inch body spacer on. I started work on it in May of 2014. We completely restored the inside with parts from LMC. there is a new...

    So, apparently I have a NP203 in my 77 K5, it has a 2lo selection, is this a good transfer case? I'm building this thing into a mud truck, and really like the 2lo position, makes it a lot easier to turn around, or should I ditch it for a 205?

    89 K5 - "Butch" Build Thread #K54FUN

    When I was growing up, I had a friend named Walter, who we all knew as Butch. He was NOT a Walter by any means. We got into trouble all the time and he was a scrapper of a kid, rough around the edges, played hockey and was by no means, a big kid. He had heart and was an all around great...

    Chevy Dana 60 front help

    I'm sure many of you have already made the upgrade and I am asking for help. I already have a ff 14bolt for the rear after being convinced that rebuilding 1/2 ton gear again would be ludicrous. I've had the truck since `89 and this rebuild has been in the works since my daughter was born 6 yrs...

    Up for sale is a 1989 Fullsize Blazer. in good condition. I bought this Blazer from a friend roughly 5 years ago and have loved it, but I have reached a point where I need something with better fuel economy and easier to make my A to B trips. Here are most of the options: Drivetrain: 350 TBI...

    Headlight Upgrade from OEM to HID Lights...

    The modern age is making me think my OEM headlights are too dim, so I'm considering upgrading them to the high intensity discharge (HID) lights. I'm hoping someone with experience in this conversion can recommend a brand to order (or stay away from). I'm also assuming the factory wiring won't...

    Hi beam light won't work

    First off, sorry if this isn't the correct place to post this thread. If it isn't then I can post in something different. But anyways, I have a 1990 K5 Blazer which I just bought. I was driving home and was using my HI beam light. It was working. The lights worked. They turned on and off just...
