    For those of y\'all that want info and pics on the Blazer in Peterson\'s

    Don't know if this has been posted yet; I've been gone since Thursday...

    Anyways, last Wednesday I was at a local Hastings browsing through thier mags when I came across a magazine I'd never seen before. And NO it wasn't a noody magazine /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif Anywho I saw a Magazine called Offroad Garage. I don't know if y'all have ever heard about it but it was your basic informant 4x4 mag for newbies. The wierd things was that the photos were credited to photographers that are affiliated with Fourwheeler while there were articles written by writers from Petersons.

    In the back of the magazine is an article on how to swap a D60 into a blazer written by David Kennedy of Petersons. Low in behold, it's the Blazer that was in the Ultimate Adventure, in the Offroad Design shop! There are lots of pictures of the shop and and the boys that put it all together.

    Check it out! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    yeah someone mentioned its a new mag that just came out. Peterson's, OffRoad, and Fourwheeler are all Primedia magazines so they are affiliated really. That new one is a Primedia magazine as well.

    The magazine is called 4X4 Garage I have a copy of it page 90 talks about the Dana 60 Axle Swap. On page 40 there is a cool picture of a ford bronco getting it's front tire ripped off. Didn't there used to be a magazine called 4X4 Fullsize or have I been breathing too many paint fumes.

    Couple hundred is a conservative guesstimation. Blew me away when pulled the menu down.
