    I am in need of someone in the Sacramento area that can weld or show me how to use a wire feed welder. I am thinking about purchasing one for X-mas so that I can repair my own carnage. Plus I really need to have the shaft on my pre-runner tire carrier welded as well so I can mount my spare and no longer keep dodging the BIG FAT TIRE that keeps sliding around in the bed! Really sucks when I slam on the brakes hard foace n glass don't mix well! LOL! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
    Thanx,
    Bill

    You know I would use them as a mud bog - except I have FIVE BIG problems.

    1) the g/f says no way....

    2) there is a 200 year old oak tree right in the middle of it

    3) the g/f says no way

    4) I am in (clench your teeth when you say it) BRIGGS RRaannnch. - (I found ONE guy who likes my Blazer -everyone elsehere HATES it - cops get called on me every other month).

    5) the g/f says no way!

    I just decided.. I want to get 38s!!!

    Do you think my 10 bolt can stand it???

    Bill - You need some 39.5 and sell me your 38s!

    Just swapped the big block in like 2 weeks ago. New everything as far as tune up goes. And it's not a totally stock BB...Full roller rockers, forged pistons, balanced crank, Comp Cams cam, MSD coil and module. 5-6 MPG is as good as it gets. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
