    My boyfriend bought me a 90 chevy blazer from Emmettology101, and we did some much needed modifications to it. Here is what we accomplished, we made our own rear disk brakes, cross over steering, shackle flip, D60 and a 14 bff lincoln locked, 40 inch super swampers mounted on US wheels. And next we are trimming the wheel well, adding his old front bumper, making a new rear bumper, and adding a roll cage....she is turing out to be a beauty!!!!!!!!!!!!! And she is all MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But I might be generous and let SOME ONE ride with...lol....

    Here's me pulling the d60 of the shelf.

    My dude built the crossover arm..with some help from Frank at work.
    Frank wire cut the tapered hole for the tie-rod and cut the brake brackets..
    He's da man!!!:bow: :bow: :bow:

    [​IMG]

    We installed 15" wheels with 4 1/8" bs..lots of grinding.
    I'm affraid of sparks, my dude did that, I was kind enough to help fit the wheels.:p:

    I mount tires too, lol.
