Wow, that looks really nice. Specs?
44" tsl on 12x16.5's
52" springs w/ zero rates and ORD shackles up front
64" springs w/ home made shackle flip and belltech lowering shackles
'85 K10 cab on '89 K5 frame
350TBI SM465 hydro bell NP205 D60 14BFF 5.13 spool welded
home made hydro steering ORD cross over
dual optima yellows, milemarker E12K winch (not pictured)
I tried to keep it on the cheap by using my own parts or things I got for free/trade. It sort of worked.
looking good. just the way i like em, low and wide.
btw, nice rims
Yah, a guy I know sold them to me with some Boggers about a year ago... They won't be on here for long since I just ordered some 12 bolt H1's from USA6x6. I'm waiting for them to ship out sometime this week (I hope).
I knew that looked like a cab on a blazer frame. Wow our trucks are pretty similar. both 89 k5's with an 80's pickup cab, Mines getting 52's/64's and one-tons with 5.13 gears this winter. What are your plans with the back of the truck? Leave it or flatbed it?
Was going to do this, but now that it's somewhat finished I may change my palns though... I'm toying with ideas as we speak.
damn doood....look out for the Mass stateys
I'm going to do my best to stay far away from them. I live on the CT border so hopefully I'll find some wheeling over there. Otherwise I need to find more friends with trailers.
really, you goin to the stafford springs meet in ct?we gotta go wheelin!
Same specs as mine, but my 42s don't look near that large. Must be the width of the tires.
I took it out a few times and still need more trimming. Here's the winch mount partially finished. I'm adding superduty shock towers and adjusting my bump stops this weekend along with finishing the winch mount.
i recognize that cab...you happen to snag it from a guy named derek?
Yes sir. He lives pretty close to me and I got a really good deal on it. How do you know Derek?
looking good dood, so...when we goin wheelin?
just know him from another forum. his truck helped influence me to move from the lowered truck scene to the 4x4 word
He and I are on a few other forums. Pirate, Berkshire4wheelers, FreedomTrailRiders etc. Have you seen his MJ? I bent the exhaust for it.
Soon as I find a trailer or the nuts to drive it on the street.
yup, his mj is awfully sexy.
I was gonna ask the same thing.
And yes, Dereks MJ is insane
