here is a pic of my old Blazer. it was fun.

Good lookin truck you have there, and thats what I was hoping to hear. It will spend most of its time on said trails n rocks. Dents don't bother me, In fact I will welcome the first few with open arms, that way I wont feel as guilty when I cut up the fenders and core support when its time for the front taper job

Im aware the steering box area being a weak link in the frame, Im thinking plate on the outside and inside of the frame, possibly adding extra bracing to the front crossmember (crossover and hydro assist in the near future)
