    Hey everyone,

    My name is Mike and I'm 17. I'm from NE Illinois. Bought myself a 1970 Blazer this past summer, the perfect truck for me. I haven't done any mods to it yet. Came with 33's and a lift. Pulled the engine to do some work. It needs new gaskets all around and I'm thinking about changing the intake and putting on a bigger carb. I was going to get the transmission and transfer case cleaned up at the shop but I dont have the money yet.

    I've taken it out offroading multiple times. All I can say is I LOVE this truck. I've made it through some hairy terrain. Always manage to get out. Its got some power, I've pulled more than a dozen of my friends out of some mud that was past the wheel wells.

    I was wondering if anybody could tell what size/if any lift I have. This is my first truck. Had a 74 dart, 93 knotchback mustang, and a 90 mustang gt so I'm new to the truck scene.

    Thanks,

    Welcome! looks like you've been having some fun in your truck! Looks like a 2-3" lift to me if those are 33's. Love that generation of truck!

    I used to go to a local field/forest preserve in the unincorporated part of Downers Grove. Me and about 10 of my friends spent an entire weekend digging out a creek. lol. managed to get it about 15ft across and two feet deep. It was just one little spot that we would mess around in that was just a mile away from my house. However, we would go out to Lemont a couple times a month.
