    Would it be possible to leave stock drive shafts on for a bit with a 6 inch lift as long as i didn't wheel it?

    probilly no cuz first time you slam on the brakes the d-shaft will fall out. How much is still in the transfer?

    Well try to drop the t-case and see what happens... might (chances are it will) vibe like crazy and not work because the angles are still goofy or the shafts are too short. Just remember the more you drop it for the rear shaft angles the worse the front angle becomes. Plus if you run crazy angles you'll blow u-jounts like crazy... and hey maybe even drop a shaft on the highway going 65mph which would suck big time... call up Jess and High Angle Drivelines and see about getting some made up..... what's the point if in having a Blazer with a t-case anyhow if you don't even plan on wheeling it or ever using the t-case?

    GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

    Well the only reason i was wondering if I could get away with that is so that my truck will be sitting for a less amount of time but i guess it doesn't really matter if I wait more time because i only bought the thing to wheel with anyway
