I'm new to the site but I have a couple of offroad toys.

This is my 83 Scrambler, 1 tons both locked, 42 inch TSL's, Chevy TPI 350, SM 465, Dana 300... lots of cool stuff.


Poser shot:


Then I have my 01 Dodge, was a 1/2 ton but now it has 1 ton axles both locked up, 44 inch Boggers, and much more.



There are a lot more pictures and info on my website: http://www.djgaston.com

Sweet K5!! It's cool to see the big boys playing in the rocks and not just the Jeeps! BTW, does that orange K5 have 2 1/2 tons in it? Looks like a wild ride.....52" Michellins too?!?!

(blushing) Thank you.....the Jeep actually made me get into CTD's.....I was looking for something else to tow the Jeep with.....my first tow rig was a 87 Chevy dually 4x4 w/454 and 4 on the floor.....actually towed the Jeep and camper well but was getting tired of 7-8 mpg empty and 5 mpg loaded!! Now I can't stop messing with CTD's!!! It wasn't supposed to work that way!

I bet it pulled better than my first tow rig... a 96 c1500 with the vortec 350 and 4l60e. it actually pulled pretty well believe it or not. I had it since new and at 120,000 it was only getting 13mpg around town and towing the big K5 I was only getting 6-8mpg.

a buddy of mine had the 01CTD for sale to get out of his payments and he wanted a gasser (said he felt more confident working on a gasser... especially a chevy). So I we traded the CTD for my chevy and 10k. i'm very pleased with the deal

Oh yeah! Check out that flex!

I'm most impressed by the flex.

Since you have very little in it. I'll give you very little plus a $100 .
I like the paint job. All the rigs on this post look pretty good. I need one with doors though. Those rock-crawlers would be way to cold to go snow-hogging in.

Mine has doors, just easier to see where your tires are with them off. And believe it or not, the body make fewer noises that way too. Doors off and tailgate on.
