    What do you think of my Blazer? It is pretty much the way I bought it, except for the 31" BFG Mud-Terrains, a big dent, some more spray paint, and some maintenance work.

    Its a 76 with a 79 body on it. The body is lifted 3in so the floor will clear the older style frame. The paint is Krylon's Ultra-Flat Khaki camo paint. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
    I could fit 33's right now, but I have 3.08 gears. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    I had 3.07's and 33's for more than 2 years. It wasn't that bad. There is member on CK5 (The85K5) Rob who is running 3.07's with 35's /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

    dude,
    i painted mine with exactly the same stuff, except i used the brown for the main body and i used the khaki for a stripe on the rockers like the 80's and 90's blazers have. that paint is awesome ! plus ya get a scratch or it peals off, cheap fix ! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    I tow with it too much to lose any more power! I recently took a trailer to the dump, and had to put it in Low to have any acceleration! /forums/images/icons/frown.gif I have the np203 by the way. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif The trailer weighs around 3,500lbs, and the trash weighed 3,000lbs /forums/images/icons/blush.gif give or take a few hundred.

    I might go to the bigger tires anyway, once I can get some rebuilt heads and my tranny rebuilt. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
