This past summer I picked up an 84 K5 to build as my dedicated camping/light wheeling rig. She was a little beat up with no motor or trans. Since then I've picked up a totaled 02 Tahoe with 5.3/4l60e combo to swap into my K5. Still deciding how I get exactly what I want out of my K5.
Currently just a rolling chassis

Currently underway:
5.3 ls swap
Long tube headers
(Possible LS9 or LS6 Cam)
4l60e trans
NP205 Tcase
Front seat swap from 02 Tahoe
Upgraded head unit and speakers w/sub
Front tube bumper
Roof rack for extra camping gear
Whatever else I find while getting her road worthy

Futures Plans still tbd:
52" spring swap w/56" rear springs
Crossover steering
Lunchbox lockers
35x12.5 tires
1 ton axes
Winch
Rusty panel repairs
Pintle hook w/custom offroad camping trailer
On board air
...And other things I haven't thought of yet. We all know how builds go
