    i love that color combo!!!
    i have a 2 tone of blue and silver, looks nice, but when i repainted it, it would have been too much $$ to change the colors

    Sweet rig, swap out the 208 for a 205 then you will be bullet proof.

    Steve, you couldn't be more right about that! Been thinking about that for some time and am now looking for a 32 spline 205 to fit the NV4500 trans. My next "phase" of the project.

    Joe, I hadn't forgot your email and am in the process of doing the write up. It's really pretty easy if your truck is setup for a manual trans. Just love the overdrive with the 4.56's.

    The wheels are 16.5 x 9.75 and I looked everywhere for them. Found 2 used sets and bought them both. one set is out being polished and then I'll swap them out. Kind of a personal thing with me. My first new truck had them and I always loved them. Wish though they made these in 16".

    That's great Bill. I plan on running 4.88's one day because of the 39's. The overdirve would be nice for when the 35's are on. I've got the SM465 right now. Now if we can only get 3.00's for the NP205 and I'd be done.

    My 91 is a very similar colour of green but I have the white top, after seeing your picture I will definetly be painting the top a tan colour instead of black. Your blazer looks great!
