Default K5 Build with Budget in Mind

So this is my first forum, and I wanted to share everything I have done and what my struggles were. My dad purchased the truck in 1986 and put the 4 inch lift and two inch body spacer on. I started work on it in May of 2014. We completely restored the inside with parts from LMC. there is a new dash, headliner, carpet, upholstery, steering wheel, all new rubber seals, new window channels, window tint, and stereo.* I have spent the last two summers working on it and have a few big plans for this summer. Since I had no job when starting this project, budget was a huge factor. I wanted to help others who want to build a daily driving capable offroad rig for little cost.

Looks good so far. I have always liked the K5 blazers.
