    Not sure if I should call this progress, but the front axle is bolted under it and it's on two tires instead of blocks.

    I tore it all apart in 2001 and it's had 2 front ends under it since and two pairs of leaf springs. I'm going to try and continue assembly this time and not change my mind again.

    Good work, but seriously Alan if you have too many things to do, I could take one off your hands for next to nothing :rolleyes:

    Nah... I'll get it done this year. Doesn't need much. Just needs the rear shackle flip bolted in, rear axle bolted into place, throwout bearing sleeve put in the tranny, front yoke on the T-case, motor mounts, steering box, repair a crack in the frame, put a motor in it, bolt the nose clip and bumper on, mount the winch, and put in the roll cage. Thats a small list compared to some of the other projects laying around the place.

    Current specs? 1976 K5 Blazer painted camo with 465/205 and a Dana 60 front with 4.88 gears and welded carrier/spiders, 6" lift springs and aftermarket extended shackles.

    Rear will be a 2" add-a-leaf in with the original spring pack from my truck Blazer (under it now) and a shackle flip, a 14-bolt with 4.88s either welded or with a Detroit, and probably a 454 or maybe a 402 big block. Oh, and a Warn 8274 winch.
