I got her in on a trade for a beat up dodge dually i bought for $3k. Traded for the k5/jimmy plus $2k. Was SO happy!!! In months i bought a 6" super lift kit to get it ready for the local mud bog.

I blew threw the first transmission after a few months. Paid the cheapest shop around to rebuild it. Bad bad bad idea but it still lasted for 4 months. In that 4 months she became my daily while my 4l60e took a sh*t in my 04 silverado.

So after rolling it because of the no flex and lift blocks. I decided to do some research. Looked into the 64 spring swap and just had to do it
