    Nice looking truck...
    Having manual brakes must suck...

    But at least it sucks all the time and not just when you have stalled it on a really steep hill and have to back down with no power assist /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I had been wheeling it until it started having high idle, sticky throttle, and advanced timing. Haven't had the time to fix it yet, but I am working on suspension, axle, brake, bumper, etc. swap right now.

    Nice Blazer. It looks a lot like my truck. I like the brackets that hold the Jack. Do you know where those came from?

    He used chain link fence pole brakets you can get them from lowes or home depot for like $2. Its a great Ida I was going to weld studs to my roll bar for the jack but I like his Ida better you can always get rid of itor move it that way.

    Yeah, what he said. The padlock was the most expensive part, but they are strong, they hold tight (with some of that one side sticky one side foam tape that is used for seals. Wrap some of that around the rollbar to protect it from scratching and to keep the fence clamps from loosening, and then just drilled out some holes for the padlock and for the receiver hitch pin on the bottom bracket. Has worked really well, jack doesn't move at all or rattle, it is easy to access, and it is protected from theives when the top is off. It turned out really well I think, and I can take them off whenever I feel like it. Thanks for the compliments, keep em coming! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif j/k
