    I had to leave town on Business, but as soon as I return, I will write up a report including pictures. Thanks to all who attended. Those who could not attend, you missed some fun times. Heck, you even missed a Stock Blazer making it up the wall! I will not mention any names, but this person attended last spring and put on one heck of a show! Im glad everyone showed up and had a great time. Tyler, it was cool watching your newly modified rig do so much more than the run in the spring. I will keep you all posted!

    Had a great time. Good to see everyone and all the mods that everyone has done since the spring run. Yes, yes.....even your mod "SNORKLE BOY"! JK
    Can't wait for the 2002 Spring Run.
    Lets try to pick a warm weekend though......

    Sure wish I could have made it... I will (hopefully) make it to the spring run if I can keep the truck together that long! I can't even make it to two consecutive wheelin' trips without performing some sort of mods on my truck! [​IMG][​IMG] The crossover, rear disc, and new cam are almost all comlpetely installed so she is going to hit the road again soon!

    Hope I get to make it out with you boys next spring!

    Oh man, that was more fun than Ive ever had in my old rustbucket. It surprised the hell out of me what a 4" lift and some lockers will do for you. Thanks again Neil for starting these runs and for doin a great job leading us and setting up everything. Thanks also to Steve Frisbie for letting me drive his rig, that was an experience Ill never forget. Great wheeling with Todd and Layne and Ken again too. Hope to wheel with ya'll again soon.

    What did you call my rig again Mr. My body mounts don't work?!?!?!? Was it "Large brown turd"...or something like that?
    Hey...the snorkle works....I made it for prevention. After they see the pics CK5 may want a write up!!

    Wait Nick, with that snorkel I dont think you can consider yourself a stocker anymore. Thats a pretty big mod. I guess you gotta hang with the big boys now in the non stock group.

    Tyler, did you swap in 3/4 ton stuff when you did the lift? Looks like you broke out the sawzall on the fenders too! Wish I could have made it.

    Re: Fall Blazer Run- Pics

    I actually did the lift a few months before the axle swap. I put them in sometime in mid summer. I used an air powered cutoff wheel, it worked like a charm. Believe it or not, I still got my 35s to hit on the front fender under extreme flex. Maybe I need to cut some more :)

    Re: Fall Blazer Run- Pics

    Yes Jeff, that boy did some Georgia Trimmin'. He must have picked that up from either Keith, Depdog or Grim. [​IMG] It is a very cool mod. I want to trim mine like theirs someday. Keith had his all welded to the factory inner fenders and such. Very fine job. My 37" Boggers also contacted the inner fenders. They did so much that it pushed the inner fenders into the firewall. I figured installing the new 6" springs would give me more clearance, but I still need to trim my inners completely up to the firewall.

    We missed you Jeff.

    Thats one tough line.

    I have updated webshots with all the photos I have at this time. I have some other writeups to do at this time, but will get one done for this run sometime soon. Had a blast. If anyone has photos of this run, please email me
