    Well after our club event next weekend at Uwharrie the big blue truck is in for a major makeover. Finally got my new shop built and power is coming on monday. Didnt get to wheel with alot of you this year due to work schedule but its on next year!

    Nov 1 Roll truck into shop
    K10 Body coming off
    S10 Blazer body going on(back end is topless like its K5 brothers, ala sawzall and cut off discs!!)
    Tubing out the front clip
    install sliders
    52's in front
    63's in rear
    full hydro steering(my crossover stuff will be for sale by the way)
    install fuel cell
    wire up gauges, lights etc...
    disc swap on rear
    Cage for the family
    35 spline upgrade for the front 60
    Detroit for the front 60
    install traction bar on rear(axle wrap sucks!)
    and plenty of little things that WILL pop up to set me back!

    April 1 2006 roll out of shop and on the trailer, and go test it out!

    Well, thats the plan anyway!

    I hope to have all of this stuff installed by my next wheeling trip...if not, then at least purchased.

    S&W Racecars 10 point roll cage
    No top
    No doors
    No tailgate
    Basically no interior (weight reducation)
    Front Lockright
    Tube Doors
    Rock Sliders
    Weld the hole in my cv shaft that lets tranny fluid pour out. :doah:

    And...I dont have enough money for tube bumpers so I was thinking, just take off the stock ones, and mount shackles to each frame rail front and back. But I dunno. :confused:

    Anyways...the cage, doors, and sliders will require a lot of work and time. I dont know if I can get the cage in before the next trip but would definitely like to have it in by the end of next summer.

    Then I will join you boys on a Tellico run. :D
