    My names Dan, I am new to this board. I am going to do my build here, becasue i dispise the people on the pirate board. too much drama and PCEs(pirate certified engineners)
    Well I am going to start building my 1994 blazer.I was(still am) a toyota guy, but my plans for the toyota are so extensive I wouldnt be wheeling for a while.

    Heres some history on it. My Father bought it new in 95'. He drove it till last year.I bought it from him for $4000 and 76,000 miles on it. It is now at 94,000 and its time to put it to trail duty.

    Now this build wont be super fast, but i will update as often as possible.Heres the plans-
    Rockwells front and rear(no rear steer)
    Fox coilovers-2.5's all around
    44 tsls
    Atlas 2 5.0
    reverse 4link front and rear
    cage,fuel cell,yada yada yada.
    Heres the pics i have so far.

    I will be running 20" Stazworks wheels. My buddy had me make some rings that weld on the outside lip to help stop the rim from bending.here are the rings. Mine will be bigger though. they are .375 HR and I chamfered them all around to help break it up a bit.[​IMG]

    Well i would like to have it done by the beginning of winter. I LIKE SNOW! I am currently back in california from nevada. The feeling I get from the people on this board is good. good vibes, everyone's down to help others. ****ing pirate board is full of people who swear they know everything!

    Here is the drawing for the 4link. the lowers will not be this close. i need to take some degree out of the brackets. other then that im happy with it.I never use to draw stuff until recently. it takes a little more time and might be annoying,BUT it will save me time and material when i start building my suspension.

    Alright well I just finished cutting the bottoms off the rocks'. what I found to be the easiest,was cut the dome off with a torch, then grind the weld with a hard wheel, and use a air hammer to get the base off. Its probly excessive but im anal about stuff. Enough chat, heres the pics-
    Before-[​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    After-[​IMG]
    I cut the dome off first with oxy-acy-[​IMG]
    Then came through with my air hammer, cleaned up pretty good.[​IMG]

    Now I am going to draw up my diff covers. Now for those of you who want to do this Im going to make the out side of the cover at 3". This should clear the ring gear just fine.[​IMG]
    Thats all for now until I get the covers drawn up. Tomarrow I should have my 4 link brackets and the covers burned out. so stay tuned!

    awesome build so far, I like the body style those blazers have... only real problem with them is the suspension/axles. Looks like you got that part covered. :thumb:

    looking forward to more!
