    Hey guys, I finally joined so now I can show off my 71 blazer. Tell me what you think!! It has a D60 front, 14B rear with detroit locker, 4.56 gears, 37 inch swamper ssr's, 6 inch front and 8 inch rear lift, 91 cop car roller motor with sportsman II heads, performer rpm intake, truck avenger, I sprayed bedliner all the way to the firewall, custom CV shafts front and rear, hidden winch, custom grille and front bumper by ME!, and I do all the work myself. Even did the one ton axle swap alone. I used to live in denver, thats where I bought the truck 6 years ago, but now live in upstate NY, rochester to be exact. Man I miss them thar hills!! And please, fight the salt!! They use salt up here like it's free. Cars are rusting in places you would never imagine! (Nope, the blazer NEVER see's snow here.)

    Is that grill off of a 1st gen. heavy duty truck (like a 2 ton)? Looks sort of militaryish. Different is cool!

    Nope, the grill was handmade by me. I used 1.2 inch electrical conduit and 1.5x1/8 inch flat stock to make it, then attached it to the backside of the outer grill shell. It sure throws people off though!
