44\'s Previously to looking through an old Fourwheeler magazine, I had seen very few K5's with 44's. And very few of the ones I had seen looked decent. I picked up the Oct. 98 Fourwheeler though and looked through it and stumbled acrossThomas Beere Jr.'s (with a name like that, you got to trust him.) 88 K5. It is exactly what I was planning to do with my K5 minus the 12" of lift and 44's. After looking at this beauty though, I've changed my plans a little to accomodate the 12" Superlift and the 44" boggers. He even has a 454 Rat stuffed between the wheel wells. This is the perfect pattern for my K5, my K30 donor truck is running a crate Rat that has been in it for 4 years, It has the one ton running gear and a NP205. I took a trip to Mr. R's (local boneyard) and picked up a TH350/NP205 adapter, I'll run the 350 til it dies, it is a freshly rebuilt tranny after all. When it bites the dust I'll hunt down a TH400. i'm playing with the idea of installing a truck roll bar and KC's and modifying the topper to fit with the rool bar still in. I acquire some reinforced fiberglass fenders and a hood from a friend, so i'm going to reinforce it even more, then put front tilt hood assembly on it. It's got a fresh Apple Red paintjob on it, so that'll stay til it fades to nothing. The only thing I don't have the parts for is the x-over steering i'm going to put on. Interior is being scraped and rebuilt from diamond plate aluminum and Herculiner'd. Does anyone know of any place I can get buckets seats that are covered in water proof material? It's the only thing I need other than getting x-over steering components. I like my trucks BIG, my women HOT, and my Budweiser COLD!
