found this on another site. Looks pretty cool. Whats everything think?
Do you know the specs?
nope but i like it would be cool to have the fiber glass top like the 73-75 style to go on it.
edit: also found this k5 in the woods a few years ago ****ty pictures and pretty well picked over. DOh i forgort to check the gauge cluster on the ground to see if it had a tac i dout it would work any way. when the snow goes i'll have anothe peak
not a k5... but kewl lookin. The IFS needs to go bye-bye though.
Not mad on the big rims but it's a good looking truck for sure.
id like to put a set of rallys on it
thats pretty cool looking. I wonder how long it took to do?
if he did sas on the front, that thing is awesome. if it's still ifs, it's still pretty cool. i like the wheels for the street, but give me some 15 or 16" steels for stomping around offroad.
really well done, overall. i'd drive it.
I'm in love.... I miss my K5 so much but I've really just grown too attached to my NBS rigs. I want one....
Still has the torsion bars and you can see the drop brackets on the front. Still nice none the less. SAS would be the icing
That truck was built here by Keagle's shop "Get Serious" (if I am not mistaken.) if it wasn't built by him it was in the shop a lot. It's got one ton's now i think--i havent seen it in a while
Where did you get those pics K5-newf
i got them from a thread on fullsizechevy. Figured i would pass it along to you guys.
I always wondered if anyone ever did this with one of the newer IFS Blazers. Now I know. Looks pretty good.
That rig was built by a local shop here in E.P. It now sports an SAS. That picture is a little old. Vortec 350, ford dana 44 front ,10 bolt rear and the owner does push it pretty hard when wheeling. There is no top to it, I do believe it is back in my friend shop for an axle upgrade. I think he is going Dana 60, 14bff.
Looks pretty good.
I would love to do something like that. My rolling chassis is perfect right now so I have really been thinking of swapping this body style on my 74 frame.
I wouldn't call it a K5, but still pretty cool.
What year is that? I haven't seen many where I live. This girl I knew had a really nice one on 35's...but I never asked her anything about it.
I LOVE it....
i can tell you this much; the grille is a 94+. then mirrors are 95+ style. those are both popular swaps, though. if he's willing to chop the top, he's certainly willing to swap mirrors and the grille. but, i don't see many dash swaps, so that may be the best way to tell. if it's rounded, it's 95 or newer. if it is squared-off over the gauge cluster, it's 94 or older.
