    Glad to hear the news. Nice to see a young man start out in life on the right track. Must warn you though, it'll cost you time, $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ and as aleady said, IS addictive!

    I like it alot, i was going to buy a stock blazer and jimmy and then put the lift and etc. on, but after calculating costs this was a cheaper and better buy. It has blocks in the rear, so i'm going to put a 4inch shackle flip in. Will that cure the vibration. I get a little vibration every once and a while.

    Sharp looking. I am not sure but I don't think a flip will cure the vibration unless the rear angle is wrong. How bad is the vibration. It might just be a u-joint going bad.
