Default Evolution of an s10

I started out with a 2000 2wd s10 4.3l


heres it with a 3" lift


here it went to 7" of lift on 31x10.5's


then 14" total lift SFA swap on 33's

now under it is a Dana 30 from a 91 jeep wrangler, 4-8" drop pitman arm for a grand Cherokee and stock yj steering linkage
np205 divorced t-case from a Ford f250, custom cross member, and shift linkage
s10 leaf springs, with home brewed cross members.
front d shaft is out of the rear of a scotts dale, the rear d-shaft is a ford bronco front shaft cut down and re welded with an s10 rear yoke.

the transfer case couldn't really be set any higher, since the mounting holes are lower that the top of the transfer case. the axles are still 3:07 gearing. Its terrible but i plan on running full size axles coming next spring/summer. Every time I go out no one ever brings a camera. Like i have a picture of it on a sand hill but that about it.

Here is a pic of my 94 Jimmy on 39.5" Irok's. It has a 14 bolt rear and 10 bolt front for now. It has a tbi 350 with a 4l60e and a twin sticked dana 300. Thinking about selling though.
