    Well, today I lifted the front of the Blazer 4" with springs and extra parts I had laying around. Then installed two 35" tires to get it rolling around again.

    Next weekend I will finish up doing the rear lift. Still trying to decide on a "home made" shackle flip or going ahead and using the 4" rear blocks.

    After everything is done next weekend, I will decide whether to install a 1", 2", or 3" body lift for that extra clearance.

    I'm tired right now, so, <font color=red>"Calgon, take me away!!"</font color=red> [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    You gonna let that steering arm kick your BUTT like that Wes?

    I just brought out the 10lb sledge (BFH) and wailed on it a few times! Good luck man! Let us know what it takes to get it off.... [​IMG]

    And, BTW, (again!) if you look closely on the middle picture, you will see that I ran over fresh laid dog poop on the driver side front tire!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Geez Wes, didn't anybody tell you you're supposed to lift the back first, incase you don't have time to do it all at once (unless you live in Kalifornia, that is). I've got a sweet pic of mine lifted and 35s in the rear, stock w/31s in the front, then another one a couple years later with the 39.5s in the rear and the 35s in the front.

    Wes,

    Allz you gotta do is park it on a slight downhill before taking the pics.....then it will look nice and level, and it will have people scratching their heads for a minute until they figure out what is going on!!!!

    I can only imagine how much work is involved in doing a project like that.....even half a lift is probably still a LOT of work!

    Dosen't that kill your gas mileage driving around up-hill all the time? If youd lifted the rear first youd go faster too because its all down hill. [​IMG]
