    well, didn't make it to TDS or San Felipe 250. but I picked up some goodies this past weekend. After loading up the blazer with tons of stuff, it seemed, i headed back home. all of a sudden the cab fills up with smoke and i pull over. tranny fluid leaking under the blazer. the tranny over heated and sprouted the oil onto the exauhst pipe, good thing it did not catch on fire. Waited for it to cool and made it home. That it'll get me off my a** and make me put the 465 in there/forums/images/icons/smile.gif.

    it's all good i guess,

    Hey Arg, that sounds so familiar!!! Almost Dejavu.. hahah. I was wondering where you were at TDS.. did you hear about Andy? I wish I had a truck I could push as hard as he does, he would have made some great video footage had I shown up a little earlier.. dangit!!! Hope he gets his back up and running quick! Whats the scoop on your backup blazer, running?

    74blaze, can't do that. it'll be going in my blaze. nice try though/forums/images/icons/smile.gif. I took a short trip down there on friday, saw a 4" lift kit on a blaze. not many blazers, though. also some guys that are willing to swap 8lug setup for our 6lug. i'll let ya know about the 16/17 later this week.

    Borrego, wish i would of made it to TDS. I know my tranny would not have made it so i passed on it. got all my stuff and more for the 465 swap though/forums/images/icons/smile.gif. I did read his post earlier, d60 time...

    need to get it running before it goes from cool to friken HOT around here.
