    I'm curious as to how many dd their rig. I'm in the works of making the Blazer dd worthy so I can sell my current one and invest that monthly payment into the truck instead. :D If you do use it for a dd, what are your specs?

    I didn't build it to be a dd,but it drives better than I expected. Good enough that I'm selling my current dd an '82 Jimmy.

    Happened to me. I dd'ed mine for 2-3 years. Just bought my g/f's old sunfire for $500.00 for the gas. Thinking of buying a 2003 honda CBR600RR for the want-to-kill-myself factor.... or maybe I could just get that loan and finish the 73' ducati....

    I'm not really sure why it does so good it's a 406 with dart sportsmenII heads a smog legal edelbrock performer with a matching Edelbrock Q-jet Hooker super comp headers with 3" pipes and 40-series 2-chamber flowmasters. harland sharp 1.6 roller rockers and a very mild cam . full MSD ignition, 5x14 K&N filter, it had awesome power with the 33" tires but it's a bit of a slouch with 35" tires ( at least to my standards)
