    Hey! I was wondering if anyone out there would be willing to let me bug them and give me advice on my Blazer when I need some? I bought it about 2 years ago and love the thing. Only one problem is my knowledge could fit in a dixie cup about what I know. I want to learn because I am so sick of these places that try to rip me off when I need a repair. Not to mention I want to make this sucker bad as it can be. Thanks!

    Welcome aboard. Most rice burners here in Oklahoma (what few there are) hide when they see real 4X4's.

    cool beans, another northern california blazer! and a girl, too!!
    lets go wheelin!!!
    there's a small handful of us from cali on the board, i'm sure they'll introduce themselves (i don't know if ChevyCaGuy would've gotten nearly as many responses, though). there's a trip to hollister that never really got off the ground, maybe some fresh enthusiasm is what we need.
    have you found any good wheelin spots over in sac? i have a map of all the state off-road parks, and there's a couple good ones listed around your area.

    if you have any particular questions, click the search button, and enter whatever you're looking for. most things you would ask about are probably listed. its a good place to get a bunch of free information really quick (besides, some of the older guys get cranky if people keep askin the same questions[​IMG]).
    anyway, welcome to the club.

    Hey, Pudding Boy answers questions, doesn't he, Riz?

    Welcome to the board, If you are anything like all 1800+ of us, you are gonna get very addicted, very fast.

    Now, for your first piece of advice....I looked at your web page, and under the little section about your truck, it says you have a 6 inch body lift. Now i dont know if you meant to say body lift, (a body lift is when blocks are stacked on the body mounts to lift the body away from the frame. this causes a space to be seen when you look in the wheel wells.) But if you DID mean body lift, than in my opinion, and just about everyone elses too, 6 inches is way too high for safety. Having the body up on such high stilts puts an awful lot of stress on all those little blocks holding you up, and they could break under hard braking or cornering. If you meant 6 inches of suspension lift, then dont worry about it.

    hey matt, the profile says 6" of lift. doesn't mention body anywhere.
    are you just being sexist, you pig?
    man, as soon as a girl comes around, you get all body this and body that.

    Where are you in Sacramento? I live in Rivercrest off of Howe and La Riviera. I could give you a hand should you need any help. There is a wheeling club around here I want to look into also.

    Ok, my bad...6" suspension lift. Better now? I get the whole wow you're a girl thing quite often so no offense was taken trust me. I pull up to lights and see the surprise when a female is driving. (Might have something to do with the fact the color of my beast is gray, black and white camo.) Think most people feel a scary big dude must be driving! It's not your usual color and sort of is scary to see bearing down on you in the rear view. I never have aproblem when changing lanes that is for sure! I do admit I am well very lost with all the technical stuff. I can wire anything like nobodys business but ask me to tune a carb and I will be standing there for a days. My thing right now is to do something with the exhaust. I sucks and not in the good way. It's stock so I want to add some headers...maybe a high flow cat and mufflers. If anyone has any suggestions let me know. I am open to any ideas!
