    I am new, but I have already posted a few questions and comments. i have a'77 and it only 2wd, but I have yet to get stuck but once. Also considering I have few sites to cruise in my area. Anyway, I have been rebuilding my blazer for about a year now. I started with a rust bucket taht had a new engine and tranny, but now it seems to be in great shape. I have gotten a few ideas from all of you, especially regarding soft tops (I ended up making my own from an old hard top, and an old jeep soft top). When I find a place (any suggestions) to post some pic, i will post the before and after pics of what I have. you will see me on here alot since I am new to this, and since I still have some minor issues. thanks everyone.

    Welcome, is your blazer originally 4wd, or is it stock 2 wheel? I use <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.webshots.com>http://www.webshots.com</A> for pics.

    I believe it is a stock 2wd but I am not sure. I knwo there is a forum for 2wd but this one seems to be visited more. I have access the hardware for a 2wd to 4wd conversion, I just need to find the time and get up the guts to pull apart everything that I just got put together.

    You could take the easy way out, and build a prerunner out of it[​IMG]

    The basic pre-runner is a 2wd truck, equipped with a long-travel suspension, a high-output engine, and 33"-35" tires. They will handle nearly anything, except rockcrawling and heavy duty mudding. There's some good examples of pre-runner Blazers on this site, and a nice picture of a 2wd 70's Blazer setup with a 2wd suspension kit here <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.fabtechmotorsports.com/chevy/chevy.html>http://www.fabtechmotorsports.com/chevy/chevy.html</A>

    Welcome! I had no idea you could make your own soft top. Does it look good?
