Default To All the K5 Owners

I purchased my first 1989 K5 blazer earlier this year and am curious to see pictures of all my fellow k5 owners blazers. I have many more plans for mine as of right now its sitting on a 2in lift with new 33x12.5x15 Toyo M/T's. Motor is stock (new rebuilt heads) but have many plans with it in the near future. Besides the lift and reversed roll bar, the only other non-stock mod is my single chamber flowmaster wih a turn down tip underneath and a brand new magnaflow cat (installed this afternoon). Thank you in advance for those who post!

Truck looks pretty good, welcome. I'm curious though... why is the rollbar reversed? Seems like a good way to make sure the cab crushes anybody sitting up front with the way it's mounted now.

The reason for the reversal is because I have a kicker soundbar that plays real loud. That way I don't blow my ears out but those ahead of me can listen. The setup is pretty much a party truck right now. When u see it live it looks clean. Like always, have to see in person to appreciate even more thank u for the question!

I dunno, it looks pretty fantastic in the pics too, haha.

Only thing I don't like is that rollbar being reversed. I would have put more of a cage on it in order to put the soundbar up so you still have front seat protection, but that's just me and to each their own.

You say you have plans but don't tell us what they are... TEASE!!!!! Tell us, tell us tell us! lol

I picked this one up yesterday. 1987 K5, 350ci, flowmaster exhaust, custom roll bar and custom bikini top. Factory rally wheels wraped with goodyear wrangler 35/12.50's. All it needs is a little interior work.

Very nice truck Ky K5! For my '74, take a look at my "build" thread.
