    Well This is an update on my conversion vehicule. I have converted a 2wd frame to 4wd frame (last time I ever do that). All seems ok so far. The drive train is installed 76 blazer donor into a 83 truck 1/2 ton lwb. 355 cid > th350 Converted from 2wd to fwd np203 awd transfer case to a 12 bolt 3.07 rear d44 3.07 front. I ended up welding the engine crossmember in out of shear frustration. It turns out my actual frustration was from breaking the pump gear in my tranny. Fixed that. I put the plow frame on and needless to say that did not just bolt right up. After some cutting and drilling it is installed now. Bumpers next then on to the cab.
    Wish me luck.

    Damn! That's taking the build it thing to the extreme. All I did was buy all the enhancement parts for mine and assemble them, not the whole blazer! Does that mean that, after seeing this post, I didn't really build mine?!? My god, please don't tell me I just bought it!!
