Here are some new pics of my K30 project:
Here are some specs:
1986 K30 Diesel
D60, 465, 205, 14bff
I've got a rear detroit locker, Inboarded rear springs with a homemade shackle flip, wheelbase shortened to 113", custom bed with shell, 1410 shaft on the rear, 42" Irok Bias on 17: H2 rims.
It's been apart since September. I just got it together and took it out wheeling Saturday night. What do you think?
Here's a before pic:
different and kinda ugly... i dig it! lol awesome, good work
cool rig . you should of brought it out to the meet and greet this weekend.
I didn't know about it. Plus, I was wrenching until about 8:00 Saturday night.
is that a jeep hardtop?
Yup, off an '04 Unlimited. It was cracked over the drivers door. I didn't care because I hacked that part off
how much lift is that and what length springs? lookd ugly but good!
yep its a ugly but i like it, looks like a jeep rearended you
WTF?!?! Aside from the crap jeep parts, it would be cool. How do you like the inboarded rear springs? I did mine awhile ago. Post up some roll pics! Its good to see some stuff being built on this site still. Have fun.
The front springs are Skyjacker softride 4". The rear are inboarded and reversed 56" one-ton springs. They are way softer now than before the shackle flip. I'll get some flex pics up in a few days when I can get to a ramp. I really haven't gotten much wheel time yet because I just got it back together. I used ford f250 shock towers in the front and fabbed up some custom mounts in the rear so that I could use 13" travel shocks all around.
Heres some more pics.
sweet rig! very different from before pic. i dig it. i would like to see some interior pics of the bed area.
I like it. Props for trying something new. I especially like the front fenders. You probably have a better view of the trail than 90% of K5's...
dude i give you mad props for origonality (sp?) I really like the way you went with things... could you put up some closer and better pics of the bed, and front cab/fender area...
so what dop oyu call it? A KJ5L
one more, how did you do the front brackets for the rear suspension?
Heres a pic of the front brackets for the rear springs. I drilled 4, 1/2 inch holes for the side and one through the bottom for grade 8 bolts. The spring eye got a 9/16 bolt. These are pre-drilling pics. I'll try to get some after shots tomorrow along with some flex pics. I still have a little clearance issue with the inside of the rear wheel wells.
