Default 1986 Chevy on Rocks

Started as a 81' Blazer with too much rot. Picked up an 86' Chevy body, shortened the box 11 1/2" to fit the frame. 91" Blazer grille.

468 BBC, Uprights, TH350, NP241, 2.5 Ton Rocks welded frt & rr, 44" cut boggers...

Just picked up a set of 14.9-26" tractors for it too..

Nice. I put Rocks in my rig years ago and now I don't think I could ever wheel with anything else.

Watch those pinion bearings, they are the Achilles Heel of and otherwise killer axle.

Thanks. This was the first summer with the rocks, doing good so far. Have had some issues on & off with hydro steering. Ive had horrible luck with Auto Zone PS pumps. 2 Bad ones in a row. Got some 52" tractors for it, im gonna try out in the spring.
