    The front springs are only 4" lift. You can see he cut quite a bit. The swampers are 39.5's on usa6x6 hummer wheels. The ORD kit is the 4". Then we reversed the sides so they pointed more rearward, and then moved them back a bit. There is a 2" block under the rear springs. It appears to have settled in nice and level. The front hanger on the rear spring was a result of a frosted barley pop. There are so many ideas stored in those shiney little BL cans. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Is the rear axle in relatively the same spot or back a wee-bit further?

    You can see the 2 holes to the right of the bracket. Those are the 2 most forward holes of the factory rivet locations. So we moved the bracket back and drilled two new holes.

    He got sent to the worlds largest kitty litter box, but myself and Larry are ready. I still need to make a few mods. But I'm ready. What time do we meet at your place?

    Re: Pic of Blazer with 63\'s

    Well, are you guys up for the drive?

    Directions to our place are here:
    http://www.mountainexplorers.50megs.com/whats_new.html
    (thats an old Mud Days directions sheet from 2002, but it shows how to get there from Spokane). It always seems like a long drive if you've never been there before.

    We'll probably head out after everyone shows up, anywhere from 10 am to noon. Before that and after we get back, we might end up playing in the mud pits and stuff.
    I'm also going to show everyone the "plan" for the races this year.

    Too bad he isn't around to take the K5 out. I was curious to see how those 63's work first hand.

    I'm going to leave my place around 9 am. I'll be there before noon. My wife and I are amped up to go. She just wants to be home around 5 or 6 so the babysitter can get on her way home.
