    I'm new to the Blazer world, just bought my Dad's 72' last year and am beginning a serious build up. I have been wheelin' Cruizer's for years and am now looking forward to some fullsize fun! The Blazer is getting a 91 TBI 350, Jet Perf. 700R4, ORD doubler(2nd gen), Corp.14 rear w/detroit, Dana 60 front w/ARB, crossover steering(for now), and a few other items. I don't have any pics at the moment, but will be getting some shortly if anyone is interested in seeing them. The lift is going to consist of Alcan 6" springs and Hill 2" shackles in front, and 2" Alcan rears with ORD reversal and 1" 0 rate add a leafs, with 1" body. I am hoping to fit some 38x14,50's for the rubber, but not sure yet on the tire size.
    Everyone here sounds like a great bunch to wheel with, so I hope I will be welcome. I am located in Clovis/Fresno, Ca. and love wheelin'. Will be making plans to be at BlazerFest in Hollister in June, can't wait to meet all who will be there! I am gen1blazer and my name is Greg.......
    Thanks

    Thanks for the welcome Mudhog, ya I can't wait. She's under the knife as we speak. The hold up to this point has been the Alcan springs, I ordered them with orbit eyes on the shackle ends which doubled the time for production and delivery. Worth the wait though!!!

    Not another guy named Greg... Just kidding!

    Welcome. I'm hoping to make it to CA Blazer-Fest 4 this year. I missed last year after being at the first one (Pismo) and the second one (Hollister).

    OK Greg,

    Now you have to do the right thing....and fill out your "profile"!!! You don't want to make "Us Greg's" look bad by forgetting that important CK5 Etiquette!!!
