    Well, as if one Blazer that doesn't run wasn't enough. I fell into something to good to pass up. WAY TO GOOD...

    What do you guys think :D

    It is a D60 and a 14, but I don't get to keep them :(

    Now, as for what I paid, well, that's a different story that I can't exactly go into, but trust me, if you were in the same position, you would have done it. It's a SMOKIN deal :)

    The frame is cut off right below the front seat points and tubed from there. Basically, all I need to do is add spring buckets to my axles and tabs, a motor/tranny/case, some seats and a fuel cell and I'm wheeling a truggy. The tube work is VERY impressive on this rig. I'll try and get some more pics of it in the next few days to show what all's been done so far...

    The arms on the links are all using either Rubicon Express Joints, Poly Perf. bush assy, or FK Rod Ends. Heavy wall DOM on the links, new coils, etc...

    It was a project that got started and died.

    WB is setup for 107" I THINK!!
    Built around the idea of running 42" tires.

    Yea, I'm stoked...

    Not quite :D I still don't have axles, motor, tranny blah blah blah LOL! The chassis a light years ahead of where I would have been though :D

    I may still yet get rocks for it, I don't know. I'm so confused now :grin:

    looks like a good place to start from if everything was done correctly.


    Are those dodge take-off wheels/tires?

    I think the wheels look pretty cool on there...

    I've seen the guys that built the chassis roll HARD with their stuff with NO problems or breaks. I'm happy with the structure.

    I'm pretty sure they are Dodge wheels. The guy that owns the place has a 3/4 ton dodge on 20's now LOL :D

    More than likely you are right on the floorboard. I'll prb keep the front clip, but I will narrow it. and skin out the back. Don't want to add a bunch of weight back in. Gonna try and keep it light. I'll skin out some floorboards. It was designed to have 4 seats and a fuel cell, I'll prb do 3 seats with the 3rd pulled forward a little to give me a little more cell room out back.
