hey everybody i have been checking out ck5 for almost two years now, and i figured i would finally show you guys some pics of my progress first off my truck is an 86 k5 350/700/208. it was stock until 2004 when i decided it was time for a complete overhaul because of rust, so i checked out what i needed to repair and it was almost the entire floor. i saw a truck that had 1/8" diamond plate steel floors on here and i loved it so i decided that was what i was going to do. i had a local metal fabricator bend the rear floors for me and i built a complete subframe out of 2"x2" square tubing, the subframe ties into the factory front subframe and the diamond plate extends all the way to the firewall.(pics of this can be seen if you click on my sig) so i just about got the floors done and i figured it would look better a little bit taller. ( i did a 3" bodylift as a part of the floor repairs). i also ordered a set of 2.5" procomp front lift springs and blocks for the back. i started reading ck5 more and realized that the 10 bolt axles were not goint to like the 37" tires i had planned on so i found a 8 lug 10 bolt out of a 89 suburban and a rear 14bff from a local junkyard for $150.00 for the pair. i also found a set of 90% 36" hummer tires for $200 and bought a new set of mickey thompson classic II's for it.the rear diff has 4.88 motive gears, detroit locker and DIY disc brake conversion. the front only has 4.88 gears for now as i didn't want to put a bunch of money into a 10 bolt.(still searching for a 60 but havent found the right deal yet). well after reading here some more i found i wanted a shackle flip for the rear instead of the blocks so i ordered a DIY shackle flip, new front shackles, and also ordered kert's spring plates(excellent products Kert). and i also ordered an ORD zero rate to even out the front of the truck. and to finish this up i just wanted to share a few pics with everyone and say thank you for everyone's help and advice. the front axle is under the truck the rear axle is going in over the weekend. i am on vacation in early may and i am cutting the roof off the rest of the way and welding in 2"x4" square tubing for the rocker panels. and hopefully in june it will get a rollcage and fenders trimmed for 39.5" iroks. Thanks again everyone and i will keep everyone updated with pics as things get finished. Chris B.
