    My wife, The biggest protestor of my blazer on the face of this earth actually broke down and purchased a new aftermarket accessory for my rig. Not only did she buy them but she installed them. She then wondered how long until i would notice. needless to say it wasn't long.

    It may be time to start hinting about that tach dash i want :D

    for birthdays,christmas and even valentines day, my wife always gets me tools. she knows that it just makes her life easier because if something breaks, i fix it, and if she wants something, i make it. she gets what she wants and so do i, more tools!

    Cool, it allways makes life easyer if the spouse gets in on wheeling! Since I built and started wheeling my buggy the wife drives the blazer more than I do.

    My wife is outside right now, pulling the interior of the K5 so she can dye it. She installed the vinyl floor last week.

    My ex-wife hated my truck. Wouldn't ever let me spend any money on it cause it was "such a piece of s**t!" (usually stated with great volume) :screwy: After we divorved I met my current wife...who actually digs my truck, wants me to spend money on it, made a safari top for it and bought me my first new stereo. Now she's got her own K5 and we're restoring it. She laid in new carpet & painted the modified seat brackets & is planning to Herculine the rear cargo area. None of that to the detriment of my own rig, B-T-W. Man, I'm one lucky bastard:woot:

    Sure sounds like you are :waytogo: !

    Before too long, you'll be asking her for input between getting a TH400 or a 4L80E tranny :bow: !!

    Yeah my girlfriend is coming around with my Blazer too after riding in it with the fiberglass top removed. She likes it with the top off but not on. I just about have her talked into me driving it for our wedding. :D

    My Wife hated the big ugly blazer too. she understood the money but got a little upset around the 7000 to 8000$ mark. She Has her heart SET on an early Bronco so when I pulled the top off finally she walked out and said "that looks good, you should fix up the body!" I Think she is coming around. Plus I take out her Brothers to play in it and she likes that we get along.
