    I wondered what happened to that thing. Finally got to see it put through its paces on today's episode, pretty cool.

    Seen that episode before. Can't believe they didn't think of tire clearance before. Besides that, that is one nice Blazer

    I think the top was on the last episode of the buildup. I've got it all on one tape. Maybe I should make copies available, I can't be the only one who enjoys watching that stuff over again. I think the only part I didn't get was the one about the paint job, but who cares about that. Kinda bummed about missing the first couple of minutes today when he did the road test before the trail ride, I am interested in how it handled the street.

    I saw it too. I would have at least put a 1" body lift and trimmed the fenders on that thing to clear the 37" tires. That all spring lift looks like it flexes fairly well, too.

    I try to watch TRUCKS! every saterday morning. Project BIG BLAZE is one nice truck. You gotta give Stacey David credit, he did have fun with the test drive. I'd like to see him build a budjet Blazer. I can't aford to build Big Blaze. Lets say a budjet of $10,000. or less. (That includes the price of the truck). I'd like to see that !!!!!

    Does anybody know what who's rear bumber they are running? I liked the set up minus the light guards, they looked out of place.

    I have the entire episode on tape from this week and the road test. I even have the "Crank and Chrome" show that comes on before it. I was searching the net for information on Big Blaze and the REAR BUMPER, but couldn't find it. I would be more then happy to take all the episodes and put them on one or two tapes for everyone if I could only get people to send me the episodes that I don't have. Or I would be happy to send this one to someone that want to make a collection.

    I would be willing to make copies for free as long as people would give me the tapes and pay shipping. So lets get together and find ALL the episodes.

    I havent even seen a single episode. I cant get past all the "Cool" and "Awesome" remarks those dudes say, but I would love to see a K5 buildup just to see what they did. Did they contact Watson or Frisbie for some real wheeling gear or did they call the local rancho dealer?

    If you are going to send out tapes, put me in line for one.

    email me with payment info. npickett@toast.net

  14. i agree. the comentary on that show is gay. they are always chuckeling(sp?) about everything they do. maybe because they have the cleanest shop in the world and they just can't get over it. i want to see the stuff that happens between the comercials like when the real mechanics come in and take a BFH to the thing cause all the sh&t is rusted on. or when they spill 4 quarts of atf all over the garage floor.

    I'm not a fan of the front bumper. It just looks weird to me for some reason and probably weighs 500lbs. I'm sure it's beefy though.

    IIRC, road armor custom made the rear bumper also.

    I've got every episode of the buildup on one tape. I've been truckin lately (over the road), so I haven't been checking this forum much. If you want a copy just email me your address and I'll check the cost of shipping a tape and let you know, but it may take a little while. I'm not out to make anything, just to cover the cost.
