    well, since the weather will soon be snow everyday... I am going to move the blazer into the carport so I can take the body off easier. My question is, I cant exactly steer it right now (not hooked up) and I need to move it back about 100 feet, to the right about 15 feet, then into the carport. Would it be okay if I skidded the blazer, instead of turning? I dont want to wreck anything. But then again, we pull ourselfs all around when 'wheeling, so I dont see a problem.
    Any input /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I'd have agree with just manually grabbing a tire and turning them to the direction you need to go. You'll probably have to stop and turn them again every few feet. If all else fails... I can say I have plenty of experience in moving vehicles without any steering. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif Nothing a chain and another vehicle can't correct.

    so I should try to steer it manually, but if that fails, I can use the furd to pull it and make it go in the right spot?

    you're not going to hurt it. Just be sure to put it in neutral, trans and t-case

    Pump the tires up hard and don't get your feet or hands under the wheels when trying to steer it! /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif Should earn yourself a beer or two after that bit of excercise!!
