    Well I finally parted with my Blazer in favor of a more (large)family oriented ride. Here is a pic of the new Suburban in its current state---

    I am soon replacing the sf14 and 10 bolt with a 60 and 14ff.

    I had the Sub for a whole 4 hours before I got it stuck in 4 feet of snow at the top of Mosquito Pass outside of Leadville, CO on July 1. It sure did not look that deep /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif and should have brought a shovel /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    If you live around Los Angeles you might have occasion to see the old yellow ride. As far as mods to the Sub /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gifhmmm plan on using it as an all around camping, offroading and towing vehicle. It already has a new 383 mated to a 400 tranny. Plan on just adding the 60 and 14ff with all the proper mods--crossover steering, rear disc brake, heavy wall tie rod and drag link,etc... I also plan on installing some nice diff covers maybe a rear axle truss, a rear shock mount kit to assist with stability---just need to find someone with all those parts

    The wheels are Weld super singles.

    Bringing this one back to the top. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    This Sub is one sweet truck! After seeing it today, I'm jealous wishing I had kept the one I sold to Dan (KRAZIE87K5) and built that one up. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Wes,
    I will be glad to get the new axles in and I will be alot happier driving it. Thanks again for everything.

    The sub has a 6 inch lift in the front 4 inch springs and 2 inch blocks in the rear. It is soon to have a 4 inch shackle reversal from ORD in the rear to get rid of the saggy butt problem. I am going to keep the 35 inch BFG's on it as it will be mainly used to tow with.
