    That was sweet. Surprised me that he was able to make it thru, trail must look smaller on the video than for real.

    What was it that snapped on that blazer about 1/3 of the way into the video? Axleshaft? Still looked like the wheels had power to them.

    As bad as that snap sounds on tape, there wasn't any damage that anyone could find. Strange.. And yes, that was Richard (Chevyhs) from this board!

    Thanks for the footage Mike! It's so cool to get to see what my Sub looks like from the outside. You're real close on the specs too. The front lift is saggy 6" springs, 1" zero rates, and ORD shackles. The rear lift is 4" blocks and a 2" add a leaf. Topped of with a 2" bodylift to clear the 38" radials. The axles are a stock 10 bolt front and a 14 bolt FF with a Detroit and 3.73 gears. /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif
