    Hello all,

    I'm new to LouisianaOffroad but have been a member of CK5 for a few years. I'm originally from AZ but ended up in the Baton Rouge area after going to dive school in CA and taking a job working in the oil field in 2004. I've since quit diving and am now working as an ROV tech. Enough about me, I have a 75' K5 that Ive had since 11' and have just been fixing things here and there and driving and having fun with it. In the future I would like to lift it and possibly upgrade the axles and stuff like that but I am a father of a 11 month old and have another one on the way, because that how I roll! So I'll be in baby prison for at least the next year and a half. Anyways it's a pleasure to meet everybody!

    Welcome to the forum! Get over to the Trail Rigs section and post some pics/specs of your build. We have a few bowtie nutjobs running around here.

    I looked for a trail rigs section but only saw the trail rides one, is that where everyone posts their build threads too?

    Thanks, jealous of your axle upgrade. I tried posting pictures a while back but I'm having computer issues I guess. Shoot me a pm if you ever want to talk trucks or anything

    I hear ya. I've been wondering if they are going to cut us back to only one system out here. I'm on a drilling rig. We have a bunch of haliburton hands out here, for different things. Thats an awesome price for those axles. From what Ive seen just a 60 is hard to find less than 1000.
