    Well as some of you know, I have started a new project. I purchaced a 1984 K5 for $500. I brought it home and went to town. Here are a few pics of the Blazer when i brought it home and began taring it apart. Pics will come as the project continues. This will be a long shot but i want to have it at BB07.
    Project SHOCKER will eventually form itself into a buggy with the 454 and the one tones from my other Blazer.....All parts that come off of this truck are for sale. If you need anything let me no.

    Looks like fun. What are your plans for the suspension and sheetmetal?

    D60 and 14ff with detroits and 5:38 gears.
    I thought about designing a 4 link set up but i am not for sure yet. I will probably go with some 6-8" Alcans with 56 front springs and shackle flip in rear..... But i am still not for sure...
