    The S10 frame/body for sure...

    It's thicker and fully boxed. Just gonna swap all my current drivetrain into this thing. It'll be nice to have a roof over my head again. :D

    No need to sell me on the S10 frame/body, glad to hear someone else is going the S10 route Yield2Me and I have gone.

    V8 ZJ coils. AS of this second I think they are too soft. If I open the door and stand on the door sill, the truck leans a good 2" to that side, and I only weight about 155lbs. I am gonna put it all together, fab up the shock mounts(none on now) and give it a try as is. Probably end up with F150 coils though(which I believe is what Yield2Me has on his rig.

    114.5 or 115, I forget. Front axle is forward I believe about 10" and the rear is back about 4 or 5 I think.

    If I had it to do again I'd at least put a radius arm setup up front instead of leaf springs, and I haven't even hit the trail yet. I'm sure the 52s will work nicely but I forsee a link setup shortly down the road.

    Everything will get swapped over- Engine, tranny, doubler, axles etc. The rest will get cut up and junked. I'll prolly try to salvage as much f the tube as I can for the S10. Otherwise it's to the scrap yard for the remains.


    Of course I want to one day...If I decide to do that, It'll never make it to blazer fest.:haha:

    I guess I could. Would be body/frame though. It's all tied together.
