I wish I could justify buying your creeper van off of you. That thing looks to be in decent shape.

Thank you and I just may ha, planning on doing a pretty extreme boatside and possibly loosing the doors in the process.
Or at least getting some manual ones so I don't have to worry about the window motor when I take a few inches out of the bottom of them.
Ill let ya know when I get to cutting her up

Nice build. My mom had a '91 too. Man did I like that thing. If I see you on the dunes this year, I'll have to stop and check out your suspension setup if it's done.

Do it!!! I need lots of parts. Thing runs awesome, just that the fuel pump finally let go. I'll wait till the snow goes away before I fix it.

Thanks man!

Ill have to think about it. You are litterally on the other side of the state so it would be hard to come get them. Ive got a buddy over that way thats gonna help me build a cage hopefully next summer, so if i head that way then ill hit you up.

You have no idea. You should see his post count over at CK5.

Anyways, welcome to GL4x4. Good to see a fellow CK5'er over here. I came over here for the exact same reason. It's nice to see there are actually a few wheelers that don't live in Cali and can appreciate the value of clean sheet metal up here in the rust belt.

Nice build. Always love a K5.

Stick with the Foxes, You will have a easier time finiding parts for them and they have been around and proven. I have foxes all the way around on my truck and I only hit them with nitrogen once a year, but it doesn't hurt to check them a few times a year.

Where are you planning on getting them from? Some places will custom valve them for no additional charge.
