    I now have a 3/4 ton Blazer woohoo!!!
    added my new 35" SSR's as well...

    A big thanks to all the people who responded to my stupid questions leading up to this swap. Everything went as planned and I did all the work myself.

    A few notes:
    I used 8 ounces of bb's in each tire because the tire store couldn't balance them. It works flawlessly! The only thing I didnt care for too much was the noise the make when you slow to a stop(the bb's fall and hit the rim)but they definately balance the tires.
    The brakes really sucked ...from breaking connectors off the line to rusty bleader screws and i still have a spongey pedal. nothing a few hours of bleeding wont cure lol.
    The SSR's were the brightest part of my day...the first test drive after the swap told me i made a great choice when i bought them. they make less than half the noise my 31's made.

    heres a pic of it today at my jobs parting lot
