    If I ever had to go with anything other than a Blazer, an old Toyota pickup would definitely be the way to go, pretty much exactly like that one. Freakin' sweet!

    I havent seen the rig up in person yet.. i guess you could cut tube and pull it out.. i dont think you can drop it throu the bottom. I cant tell if he installed a hinge or something to open it up.. i'll let you know when i go and check it out this weekend

    Those newer LS1/Vortec engines don't go bad.. :p:
    Drop it in, Fab motor mounts, Figure out the wiring, Get it running, and your done for years to come. Uuh whats a timing light? :D :bow: :pimp1:

    (Just tube it. If the motor ever does have to come out, cut and flange the tube THEN.)

    I count 6 very easy cuts to get the motor out, I really think with a fresh one that's not going to have to get pulled all the time it's not that big of a deal.
