its life started off as a 85 s-10 blazer. I picked it up a year and a half ago for 300 bones. dude drove it to the house and parked it in the yard for me. I started to work on it 3 weeks later and noticed it had no compression in cyl 1. guessing it was blown I purchased a TBI 2.8 for 75.00 out of Chicago.
So far for this project I have aquired parts for a body lift, front bumper, and light bar(thanks Cheapthirllsb2). Now All I need to do is put in a motor and get the damn thing on the trail. It has 30 x9.5 canyon climbers on it with good tread so I will wheel them for a while till I see how it holds up.
BTW not everyone in cheap thrills has the ambition to build a rig in a weekend.:tonka:
