    Greetings,
    I've been lurking about the forum for quite some time now and figured I should register eventually. I bought a 89 Chevy K5 Blazer a few years back and went to work on it to make it a mudding machine. I've swapped the 1/2 ton axles for some 1 tons and put on my own custom suspension lift and crammed some 44's under it. I had a 350 proffesionally done to provide the torque and hp for such large tires.

    I'm looking for people around the waukesha area that like to go mudding.

    I live in Upper michigan, Escanaba Area, but I don't think my truck can compete with 44's in the mud. With 35's my truck will probably be up to the mirrors!

    sorry, I don't have any of it. No scanner. But, it is a beaut. Painted it jet black and I'm thinking about chroming out some of the components and making it a show truck and starting another mudding machine.

    It was just a thought. I've got a few other vehicles that I hope to make into mud machines and a couple of cars that I'm working on as well. And no it will not be 100" of lift that make the 44's look dinky. I just want to shine it up and win a few trophy's.

    Some areas up here got about 4" of snow but we only got a dusting of snow in Escanaba. Sure do look forward to playing around in the snow though. I also have a RMK 600 Polaris. I had to go with the Rocky Mountain King (RMK) so I can go anywhere off trail. Just like my K5!

    I went to college with a kid from Escanaba. Does Joe Robitoy (sp?) sound familiar? I went to Ferris State with him. Maybe you know him?
