I'm lost in 4x4 land and was hoping that CK5 would be my GPS. However, I'm still finding myself lost and in need of a guide. I bought my 85 K5 back in the summer from a friend and had hopes of building it into a nice DD/Weekend trail truck. But where do I start? What engine would be best suited? What tires? Should I beef up the suspension first or replace the transfer cases? Tons of the usual newbie questions, but very few answers. Everyone here seems to know exactly what they are talking about, and know what they are wanting to do next with their own rigs but I'm finding myself lost in the technical aspects. Someone throw me a tow line and pull me out of this technical mud. My truck needs it all. New engine (It runs, but I don't know for how much longer), body work, interior work..I don't even have a dash pad, just the metal that the dash fits over, I'm sure the drivetrain could use a rebuild or replacement since it's all bone stock and 20 years old (but hey, to this point its all still working). I'm just looking for some guidance here. Heck, I'll even document it, photograph it, and write it all up as I go along and CK5 can have it all. Its very own "'How to' for newbies" on a complete build up. What say you?
