just curious which 4x4 would you rather own ? mine would be 79 k30 silverado
I've been dreamin about Unimogs lately.
an early 90's HiLux from Australia. toyota durability, SFA, and the diesel. I couldn't ask for a better truck. I believe when I FINALLY buy a new vehicle, it will be getting imported from Australia.
Bigfoot '75 Ford F250 Highboy with 2.5 ton Rockwells and 48" Goodyear Terra Grips.
His, that thing is mean lookin
I waited until I could get exactly what I wanted. It just needs a few more things. Anyone want to loan me $10,000 for parts?
PSC Bruiser buggy, a bigass K truck, and Willyswanter's pre 4-link truck. And an old flatfender for those retro trail rides.
I'm gonna need a bigger garage...
Spickler's Death God, in theory, if he' not dead
67-72 4x4 sweet ride there. but for all out big play toy. 5 ton 6x6 tow truck
1943 Dodge PW command car-the one with 4 door cutouts. dana 70s front and rear, 528 Hemi crate motor, manual shift 727 with 203 case.
Did you pull the blower off?
I think my 72 Chevelle wagon I had that was on a 69 Suburban chassis was my favorite so far--followed closely by the 72 K5 and the 71 K5 I had ..I liked all my 4x4 pickups too,but they dont have enough space in the cab for groceries and other stuff..the wagon was tits..had a 454 motor,divorced rockwell T-case,and 3.73 gears (6 lug axles though,BOO!),plenty of ground clearance and room enough to sleep in it( the back seat folded down,and it was a cargo are all the way to the 2 way tailgate!).. --it looked like a 454 SS on steroids...
It would twist peoples heads when I drove by in it,and chicks loved it too!..but so did the boys in blue--they never hassled me,but always kept their eyes on my everywhere I went...if I even squeaked a tire they would not hesitate to pull it over !.. ..My K5s were fun too--wish I could find a nice 72 rust free and put a diesel in it!..maybe a Cummins though--a 6.2 is a bit too sluggish in a way..but I would consider one ..a Duramax would be the balls--if GM had a brain they would bring back some "retro" body styles with later drivetrains..I'd buy one!...
Dream truck... 1st Gen (69-73) Blazer with a 4BT Cummins, 6 inch lift, 46 inch Michelins on Portal Axles (Mog) with Hummer Beadlocks. Oh yeah, 4 wheel steering... I should be able to do that with Portal Axles, right? Of course it would have to be completely gorgeous inside the truck... looking like a futuristic rig rather than a 30+ year old rig, and would have to have GOOD sound, but not a hopping system. An absolute MUST have on this truck would be a power convertible top. If you are going to build the best, what's the hell is money anyway, right?
I've been eyeing up a few All Terrain Forklifts (Pettibone) for their drivelines and axles, but realize how enormously heavy those axles and wheels must be.... the wheels are taller than most tires.
Dream ATV... Argo 8x8 pull the 674cc Kohler motor out and drop in a 1.0L Turbo Diesel. =) Weeeeeee... they seriously go ANYWHERE.
A M37 Dodge Powerwagon with a turbo diesel swapped into it. Lifted with 39.5 boggers. I really liked the one in Top Truck a couple years ago. First vehicle I ever drove, and I think they are just awesome!
I want my first K5 back. 72 K5 Blazer with the 454 sm465/NP-205 combo and 1 ton axles with 4.56 gears and 38's.
I am starting to get lust in my heart for a Dodge WC-53 Carryall. These are getting rare, but slap a Cummins 6bta in and Rockwell axles with 42" tires. This would be the 1940's K5.
Well id like to keep the body of my blazer and thats about it So a 76 blazer, 383 stroker/th400/doubler, d60 with all the goodies and 5.13's, 14 bolt with all the goodies and 5.13's, coil overs in the front and an eliptical setup in the rear, narrowed front and back, full cage, carribau(sp?) seats, harnesse's and all the interior goodies, milemarker 12k's front and rear Oh yea and 42" tsl's on TR beadlocks
That thing rock, man i love old iron, so much more class, and style
Mine is a 72 K5, 4 link front and rear HP60 front D70HD rear, big as tires i could fit without cutting the body, and about 8 in lift.
sweet full custom interior, good sounding system with a dvd.
mabye the same setup, but a sub. so i could tow my other blazer.
