    Looks good!

    But I think that the roll gave it character.

    Too bad about losing the paint job though.

    Too bad ya spent all that money on new body panels and paint, plus all the hours of grafting in those 'yota tail lights, before you decided that it would be fun to see how fast you could destroy it. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    no.. I really like haveing the clearence between my body and frame, plus my distribiter doesn't hit this way with the big block, and I want to go to 42's with out having to hit the floor or move the axel forward.

    plus I can run tube under the body to tie in both dides of my rear bumper and rockers for extra streanth and support.

    I am also am making a new sub frame out of 2x2 in the rear bed since my bolts ripped through the floor,plus it allows me to not have huge stiff springs /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    and the # 1 reason of all..... It is easy as hell to get to the top two bolts on my tranny /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif try that on a stock truck /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I have debated taking it off all the time "even today I thought about it" but I just like the benifits. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    Holly crap dude! /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif You are one crazy SOB. I still like it though, I mean at least you went and got new straight fenders to put back on it. BTW how do you have all this time and money to work on that thing (and run it for that matter)If I did all that I'd have to sell the house /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    That was such a straight and clean and nice looking Blazer... too bad it all got messed up. But I'm sure... in some strange way... it was still worth the fun though (rolling it).
