I know this is kind of an old thread but I figured i'd update it. I decided to keep my k5 since I just had too much work in it and good memories. A few people even showed up with money but I had to turn em down. This thing is just too much fun and will just go through anything. Plus now that I have a 2wd daily driver I'm going to need something to get around in the snow.
Since then I made only a couple minor changes to the truck, I finally got the choke set on the carb just right so I starts and idles like a fuel injected truck at any temperature now, and I slapped on a billet grille:
since I've decided to keep it the lift is coming soon...spring/summer 2013. Can't wait to finally get it sitting right.
