It might get tight on some of the trails. so hope you are okay with a few dents. Make sure you do some fab work to the frame around the steering gear box, they like to brake.

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

This must have been before you came to the park
Now show the after park look. The yellow paint named the lost rainbow tree

Ha umm not quite, the wings game took up a lot of the weekend. The b52 brackets are almost done and i should have my leafs by the end of the week. the 60 will be in this weekend and i will measure for hydro lines, break lines, and shock placement. Crossing my fingers that the longer pinion on the 60 will make up for the large amount of droop im gonna have with these springs so I can still use the stock driveshaft. Gotta tap that steering box this week too, so much to do and so little time

Final pass with the 7/16" bit.


Then I decided to invert the box the let gravity pull most of the shavings out when removing the rags. Unfortunately the effects of gravity also exist on the worm gear Next thing I know the table looks like this and Im playing I spy for all my ball bearings.





22 were found, I thought there were 24 in these boxes but read on another forum it may vary (scout boxes have 22). Finally got it back together after several attempts, I never want to do that again. It cycles smoothly, obviously wont know for sure until its bled but Im crossing my fingers

Yep sure is, Ive heard nothing but great things about them. I wanted to order his a-Bomb bumper, since attaching a bumper now takes some creativity with the brackets in the way, but he was like 7 weeks out on those and im impatient ha.
