86 chevy k30. They pretty much use all the same stuff. That's the truck I give when buying stuff for my one ton.

Also make sure its a dana 60. If you're gonna check the brakes it will have this metal tab you have to hit out. A dana 44 will have those pins you have to unscrew. And as always pictures help

I believe on the newer K5's there is only one cross member.

I just looked in your usergroup rights and there is nothing prohibiting you from creating an album, garage, or attaching images to your posts (images of your truck are much more appropriate in an album or garage).
