Default K5 Toyota Prerunner

I started with a 1987 Blazer then striped it down to the frame. I got a different motor and transmission for it, turbo 350 2wd, chevy 350. I went through the motor refreshing the top end with a pro comp cam package and rocker arms. Edelbrock intake and Holley carb. I got a 14 bolt 6 lug sf rear axle from my friendly local junkyard. 1992 Toyota pickup cab is going to be on the K5 frame. The body is from the south with no rust. I'm making a custom front axle. I cut the old K5 front axle at the knuckles and I have a tube to fill the difference. At the same junkyard I got a power steering box off a 2wd older chevy pickup. That will allow me to have crossover steering. I also have some 6 inch lift Rubicon Express coils for the front. Now i have been working on making the frame stronger by boxing it in and making new crossovers.[url=http://www.greatlakes4x4.com/vbimghost.php?do=displayimg&imgid=34151]

I got some parts form the junkyard 50% off sale

Made some coil buckets, retainers, and drilled out my pitman arm just a bit





The top buckets are a little bulky but they will work great
