    Well, I got the 44s in my driveway. I love it, these things are BRAND NEW. Still have all the litlle nipples on them and the injection lines and everything.

    I cant wait to get it going how. I have them leaned up next to the Blazer.

    Plus, the Mounds run on Saunday was pretty cool. Really got the motivation going.

    Need to wheel, now.

    I haven't been wheeling since Memorial Day! I really miss driving my Blazer.

    I don't think I've seen any pictures of your Blazer yet Ken?
    You better get some pictures of it up on those 44's!

    Well, I kind of took a little turn. When I went to the 44s, I decided to not put it together without the Dana 60 in it. Why build it ones and get it all right, then tear into it to put the Dana 60 in and redo all the front end. But, it should be all good by spring time.

    Know anyone that is interested in a 10 bolt front end with 4.88s and set up for cross over? Need to sell it to get the Dana 60.

    No, I was there Sunday. But, I have slowed on mine. Going to just go and put the Dana 60 in to start with instead of the 10 bolt and then swap in the spring. Just do it right now. So, just putting together the money now to take the hurt out of the price of the 60.

    Mine is black and red.

    Send me a PM so I can keep track of your name. But, if you are on this site every once in a while, I am going to start posting it in the Blazin Trails section each time.

    They close it just for the spring thaw time. Thats when I want it open!!!! Something like March or April through the beginning of May. The first Sunday in May that they open back up is a real big day. We usually have 20 something vehicles go. And that is just who is with us, not other people that come.
