    Click on the "Before and After" link and tell me what you think about her. She's mostly finished (for now) until I can get a bit more funds together. New items added: Skyjacker 4" inch Softride lift, Energy Suspensions body mounts, Bonarue Spare tire carrier, Skyjacker steering stabilizer, 33" BFG AT/KO's, Mickey Thompson Classic II's, 4.11 Gears, Auburn limited slip in the Dana 44(front), LockRight No-Slip in the 12 bolt(rear), Edelbrock 1406 Carb (replaced a newer but troubled Holley) and a new 15" K&N air filter for the new carb. The old tires and rims are now for sale along with the Holley and matching 15" K&N filter. The Holley, which is less than a year old, just needs someone who knows how to tune her. I didn't have the expertise, and had my problems. It's still as shiny as the day I bought it, and I could even show the receipt for when it was bought, and installed. The tires and wheels are about a year old, and are in excellent condition. I just wanted to have highly polished wheels. Well I hope you like the photos!

    Nice pictures -- thats a great looking truck - was the tire carrier made specifically for the 1st gen. Blazer? Was it a bolt on or did it take a little fabrication?

    I pm'd you on the Holley - depending on the model & price - I might take it off your hands.

    What an awesome Blazer! If I ever get my K20 done, I must get a Blazer.

    That tire carrier gos right into the receiver, and actually extends it. the only tradeoff is that you reduce your trailer tongue weight capacity by 30%. But, it's the only choice if you don't want to drill into the body. The address is: www.sparetirecarrier.com

    It tips forward for access into the rear of your truck, comes with a locking hitch pin, and if towing dictates, can be taken off. What more could you ask for? (Damn, I should get a commission for this sales talk!) /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Yup, and If you're really slick, you can get the '96 Bronco mirrors with the turn signals in them and hook them up! I'm really trying to find some now.
