    Before the Moab trip I upgraded to hydro assist and 5.13s.

    Hydro assist - PSC 1.5" Ram and Scott4x4 tapped and rebuilt a box for me. My AGR box was ruined - POS from the start. I have nothing nice to say about AGR but will stop now... :mad:

    5.13s - love 'em! They feel OK on the highway, finally able to use OD. Have not put a tach on it or measured the mileage. My speedo shows about 85MPH at 60ish :haha: How do you calibrate the speedo on a 91 again??


    The Blazer performed flawlessly on the last few trips. Moab was awesome - only some minor fender tweaking and some new pucker spots on the seats :D

    Gratuitous pics:

    looks great. I love my 1.75 psc ram. I havent wheeled it hard with the hydro assist, but deffinatly much nicer and easier. Street driving is simplicity.

    I wish i had lower gears tho...

    Redding is my home town, almost all of my family is up there. Maybe we can hook up for a trip behind the dam soon. Had a great snow run last XMas :D
