    Change my rear suspension (still sittin on blocks), fix my driveshaft vibe. I doubt I'll get all that done in 2 weeks. At least I'll be able to drive out there.

    Things I am trying for by the 21st:

    ORD Shackle flip ( not looking likly since i was sent the wrong one today)
    Weld & Bolt-in steering braces
    New bumpers
    redone interior
    still need a spare
    possible get the sliders from Toybox

    i think that is it...I will be the only blazer out there leaking like a siv cuz of the rear main and front seal on the tranny. Oh well, new ones are on order/forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Eric-
    I'll give ya a hand if i have time when you are planning on doing it. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
    Shoot me a PM and let me know when you are planning on doing this. It always helps to have another dude willing to get dirty and greasy under your truck. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    What do i need to do before the run?
    - Wash the K/5
    - Get my spares parts and trail stuff ready. (Duhh.)
    - Disassemble and clean out carb.
    (I think i figured out that my "popping and losing power above 4,000 rpms" is becasue of pismo sand still in my carb. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif /forums/images/icons/smile.gif)

    *update*

    new bubmpers are done, interior is torn down and will be finished this weekend.

    ORD flip is looking impossible. Might try to get it all (including new shock mounts) and do it in May.

    Spare is also out. not enuff $$$

    Welding the rear end is looking like a possiblity...
