Okay so I'm new here. I tend to post alot less than I read. Then when I do, well, it's probably useless. Background: Have an 82 K5 with a 6.2, 4" lift, 33's. Wrecked it, knocked out the power at Starz with it. Needs the frame straightened, a front clip, and a bit more. Been looking for possibly a whole blazer/truck/burb to use for parts. Story: Wednesday I was driving around looking for a beat up something to use for parts. Saw a decent looking K5 in a lot, stopped in. It was an 84 with a 6.2, loaded, great body, etc. Pretty much wanted 3k for it. Sitting at the back of the lot was an 89 Suburban 3/4 ton. It's smoking a ton the guy says, I could probably get it for 1000. Looking, it's got a brand new superlift, really clean engine, only bad spots are one barn door and that it's not got any options. I tell him I'll think on it and come back Friday, as Thurday was THanksgiving. This morning I went back with a friend, drove it, runs fine, 4wd works great, warn hubs, and overall pretty good for a grand. Get to talking, and the K5 they have, they tried to move right after I left and reverse went out on the 700R4 in it. To make a long story a tad shorter (as you've probably not read this far) I talk him into the suburban and the K5 for 1000 each!! When I popped the hood on the blazer, aside from the same 6.2, what else do I find, but... it's been turbo'd!! So now I'm gonna yank the trans, lift, wheels and tires, etc out of my old k5, and have it to start over on. So I ask you: who is your daddy?!?! 96 MX-6 V6 with a Ford logo 82 K5 6.2 82 K5 6.2 Turbo 89 3/4 Ton Suburban The last 3.. FREE! I got my first K-5 for 500, insurance gave me 4000 for it, 2500 after deductable and me keeping it, and the newer K5 and burb for 2000!! okay, way too excited. I'll try to get some pics up, just... too thrilled not to go off for a bit!!
