    Sorry Zepplin I used you blazer but it was the best one with a side view. Now don't you guys go and still my idea.[​IMG]
    I figured by the time I did it, it wouldn't be cool anymore, so I thought I would share it with you guys.

    Pretty cool, especially the rear spring that was cut in half and has no shackles. How much flex does it have? The irregular shaped swampers must be great on the rocks. The roll cage is guaranteed to protect you in case of a roll over and I'm sure you and your passangerswill be quite comfy in those custom zebra striped seats. The custom steering lever must be cool feature to have on the trails. Oh yes, and the front drive and rear driveshafts that don't actually touch the axles are always a nice thing to have.

    How about front and rear coilovers. That will take care of the spring problem in back. As for the drive shafts not touching anything those are the links for the 3 link front suspension and the 3 link rear suspension. Oh my 4 year old daughter thought that we needed those zebra seats. I hope one day to build this.

    Funny other than the color and the swampers it looks just like mine does now except I'm not bobed :) Should have a pic with the roll cage installed soon and I'll put it on my site.
    Reason your pic doesn't show is Steve had a band width problem and you cant load an image from your site and have it show. the pic would have to be on another location like Photopoint etc. That may change soon with the server upgrades.

    Hey Donovan, that's cool. Having a goal helps move the project along. The bob on the rear you could do now, just fire up the sawzall [​IMG].

    If you got alot of time on your hands could you build a real roll bar for my Blazer. I think something like you drew in the picture would look good. I also want a dark royal blue for the paint.

    I need to get some wheelin' pictures of my Blazer but, never have any time.

    Looks good though!
