    Jeff-
    Once it starts, runs, goes forward, stops and can be turned I'll get her a test run.
    how soon to roll it... um after shaking it today...about 10 minutes,LOL


    Cass-I'm going with Mitch's old 38.5 sx's. in the pics It has 245-75-16 aquatreads on the back(26" tall) and some cooper 12-16.5's (30") up front.


    some more numbers for the others who may ask. 90" to the top of the roof, 31" to the rocker, 16" between the bottom of the frame to the top of the front axle. 17.5" at the rear betwen the axle and frame.

    consist of a 2" body, new poly body bushings and ford 57's front and rear. rear has the ord flip and the lowrider shackle. front is vise versa spring mounts(driver side to the pass side and"vise versa") and lowered 2" and a 7" shackle to get the ford the room to move.

    And on Jeffs roll over comment..... THIS THING IS SUPER SOFT. I'v seen jello molds move less then this, but the shocks should take some of that out. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif/forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    -Jeremy
    PS after Jeff left I added the whole front clip and tailgate on it. I have 11 pics on my camera to get finished and dropped off(old school film on a roll,LMAO)

    todays news***
    the radiator does not fit between the water pump and grill some great fabbing skills took place. I hemmed and hawed around then drank abeer and after getting a 2nd opinion from my brother I moved the motor and tranny back 4" which intailed moving the front tranny mount bolt to the rear hole and redrilling one and then drilling 3 new ones per side for the engine mounts. I also got the tail gate cut and trimmed for the new hinge to fit the blazer floor(1" taller)
    and by moving the tranny back I get a better fit with the shifters too.
