    well i got my blazer without a front driveshaft..there was something wrong with it the guy said and he took it out...i went to look for a new one where the guy told me to look..and they had 2 of them..but neither one was right....i aint gonna use 4 wheel drive hardly at all anyway...does a person get a little better gas mileage without the front driveshaft or anything? does it really matter that the front driveshaft is out?...besides not having 4 wheel drive..thanks guys

    not meaning to be an a**hole but if you dont have and dont want a front driveshaft then you really should look at getting something that fits your style. I mean the whole reason to have a 4x4 is to have working four wheel drive. If your looking for a mall cruizer then checkout 67-72chevytrucks.com . They have a nice collection of slammed, low riding assphault tamers and it's a cool site. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    i disagree. if you like lifted trucks lift a 4x4. even if you never use 4 wheel drive, nothing looks more retarded than aliftyed 2wd. he said he doesn't use it a lot,most 4x4 owners don't, it's there in case for most people. when i go wheelin with my mis-match gears i only use 4x4 when i'm stuck. get a driveshaft though, if you haev a 203 you'll tear your case up not running a front shaft.

    I recomened getting your lift and installing it, then have new drive shafts made for your truck. I had both shafts made new for my K5. $200.00 per shaft isn't bad, consittering that all new parts !!!!!!! (I had longer then stock drive shafts made after I installed my 6" lift)

    Well if all your interested in is looks then your opinion doesn't mean anything to me but here we go. Yeah, a 2wd street queen may not be cool but what if it's a pre-runner that can soak up 4 foot bumps? Is it still retarded? It's built for a purpose and serves it's purpose well. I don't care what anything looks like as long as it's built for it's purpose, a 4x4 truck lifted to the moon with 44" trxus all terains with no front driveshaft is retarded to me.

    running a full time 203 in 4hi loc without a front driveshaft will significantly shorten its life- i'm bnot 100% why, but i know this is true, someone can help me out i'm sure.
