    Posting for my son.
    Will get pics up later...
    For the old timers this was built ~a decade ago as the "GorillaJeep" on CK5 and other web spots.
    Its been around a few times, changed hands my son bought it a couple years back. We put a new motor in it and wheeled it at URE and our farm and that's about it. Went to a local mud bog once and played around in the baby slop...decided mud wasnt for him.

    1974 K5
    Drivetrain:
    Newish 350 aluminum intake, edelbrock 4 barrel vac sec carb nothing special
    th350
    203 with part time conversion(allows 2wd low), floor shift and warn hubs

    Suspension: All DIY4X components, About 5" of lift total.
    Front : A-bomb front, with HD eye replacement, 7.25" shackles, 52" front springs, Bilstein 7100 remote res, shocks, all poly bushings EZ inch moved front axle one inch forward.
    Rear : Rear shackle flip and switch, rear front hangers moved forward for 63" springs, Shock in-boarding kit. 7.25" shackles cross tied. Bilstein 7100 remote res shocks.

    It all works extremely well, flexes well, and drives down the road decent (hydro makes for no quick maneuvers)

    60/14 bolt I think they are 4.10 not 100% sure.
    lincoln lock front and rear
    Cross over steering with Hydro Assist. BTF front diff cover. Razor Back rear diff cover

    Full cage tied into floor pan. 1.75" .120 DOM.
    No hard top. Has 2 soft tops that go with but both are old and tired.
    39.5 TSLs

    Has some seats out of a TJ in it with some booty fab mounts. If it doesnt sell this is next on my list of to be addressed. I dont like them.

    This is a trail rig. No door glass, no radio, no heat, no dash pad.
    My son is leaving in 3 weeks for college and wont be home much so mainly looking for cash but....

    Trades -

    Is it blue and white? If so, all that sounds pretty much correct!

    yep thats the one...
    only thing we've changed since ownership was the motor and had the trans gone through

    Was in Myrtle Beach when James built it...then @pipeline had it in NC (still his avatar IIRC) then another exchange or two before my son bought it out of Shelby I believe

    I have secretly stalked this thing in my head since it was posted for sale at the beach...

    So to be clear. No title then?

    Wrong.
    Clean title in my name. Tagged and insured.

    And I am ready to make a deal and find it a new home....replaced a weeping brake line over the weekend and bled all the brakes.

    I see no down side to this Andrew!

    And I'm prepared to give you a 1/2 gallon of prime buffalo trace for that thing occupying your shop that hasn't moved in over a year :cool:

    I'm not sure what this means but I agree with at least half of it.

    Some pics... obviously didn’t clean it up. But there is enough to see what it is I think.

    And let’s get serious on the price.

    I will entertain parting it if folks have patience and I get enough spoken for to make it make sense

    If it only had a set of period correct Ground Hawgs under it. GLWS. 10 years ago I would’ve been all over this.
