My k-5 build
« on: October 23, 2008, 12:12:00 PM »
For those that know me I sold my toy to build a new wheeler.
I was looking for some thing with more room so I went with a k-5 blazer.
The cost of the blazer was only 1,400 bucks. ;D
First thing I did was cut out the fenders. And remove the crappy 9000 shock control. 
Next was to start on the cage and rock sliders front and rear bumpers.

Some pics of the front seat mounts.   
Then there are my side tree sliders so I don't screw up my top.
Front bumper is all most done just waiting on my T-Max 15,000 winch.

Then I still have to put in my full hydro from PSC.
I have my snow tires on now and I just grooved my rock tires and mounted them on my other set of bead locks.

It is the np 203 with the part time kit in it with warn hubs.
The blazer came with the part time kit in it and a spare sm 465 with a np205.
All I have to do to get it running is to put the rest of the propane kit in it and finish the exhaust.

I am still whaiting on parts.
Just got my double spline rear axles today and they where wrong.
They did not have enough spline on them. >:(
