Hi all. New here. Been over on CK5 for a few years. Thought I would see if I can get to know some more local wheelers, and more importantly find parts that arent all out in CALI lol
Heres my 85 K5, Put a 408 SBC in 2 summers ago. Prolly 3k miles on it now.
Last summer had a 700r4 Built by the best local guy around, also put a transgo stage 2 reprogramming kit. I love how crisp it shifts now, and I put the biggest cooler I could find with an electric fan pulling air.
Also has a 2500 RPM Hughes Lock up converter.
I play in the sand, bout it, some mild two tracking here and there, no mud.
The day after I bought it.
Build party with a guy from CK5, Kert from DIY4x was there and well after much liquid persuasion from the guys..... I got me some new stickers
Then the motor started knocking, so I talked around and had a guy start building me a 400 he had laying around.
Free shorties I cleaned up in my bosses blast cabinet.
Scored 2.5" mandral exhaust from an exhaust shop for $80. Also painted the headers.
Got a new top, other one had busted windows.
All sanded down
All Primed and Painted
My Buddy helped and so did my lady.
Finally Got pics of the motor
