    I have been lurking for about a month. I have read over 1300 pages of The Garage forum in that time. I decided to be come a honest paying member tonight.

    I had a 91 blazer that I had to trade back in 99. Life is better these days and the wife has OKed a 'new' truck. I am looking hard at 1980 or older Blazer.

    I have learned alot read these forums. Now its time to pay a little back.

    Matt

    It's nice to have you aboard Matt. I've learned so much about my Blazer from this site, unfortunately it took me a while to find CK5 and I built my rig according to the other trucks around here (all 1/2 ton with 33's to 35's). I wasted about $4,000 before seeing that what I was building wasn't what I wanted. Definitely search for something that already has a Dana 60 up front, or at least go 3/4 ton. I've broken too many 10 bolt rear ends with stock tires to even count. Good luck /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    [/ QUOTE ] There will be plenty of room to build it up even if it has good axles and a strong drivetrain. I just think it would save a lot of money and aggrivation to buy something with them already included. /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif
