    Hello from this virgin poster. I stumbled across this site some months ago looking for information, then started reading the forums more recently. I figured I would say hello, and then starting posting my endless questions.

    Just to break the ice:
    I'm the webmaster for Alaska Extreme Fourwheelers (though I'm a newbie wheeler, I somehow volunteered to do the webpage), link is in my sig if you are interested.

    I drive a '84 K20, currently 14FF rear and D44 front, though I bought a non running '86 crewcab for the 60 front. Tired and well worn 350, 465, 208...blah blah blah...nothing special.

    I'm still building my truck (though isn't everyone?), and basically plan to drive that until I score the high mileage (low cost) 88-91 Blazer I want.

    Anyway, I'll try not to ask too many stupid questions or step on any toes here as I learn how to wheel my chevy in the 49th state.

    Hrm..thirsty crowd. Maybe I should price out a keg? Sorry WhiteKnight, I'm more of a Molson drinker. I think Budweiser gives the worst beer $h!ts...

    Mind if I wait 'til next weekend to make the next beer run? Two feet of snow has accumulated on my truck since 3am. I"m sure I could make it to the beer store, but too lazy to dig out my truck.

    Thanks. 6" Tuff Country springs f/r, 35x12.5R16.5 BFG MTs on American Racing wheels (not sure what the style name is). Tires and wheels are to get me through the winter. Planning on going to 15 or 16" wheels and swampers when the roads clear.

    I also own a '90 GMC Z71. But that truck isn't as much fun and lacks character. Probably why I let myself park it for 4 months when it got a head gasket leak (used to be my daily driver).

    Hmmm. . . kegs and lots of snow, sounds like school. I too am new to this site, read and learned alot already. I go to school in the UP of michigan, where the snow's measured in feet. I just bought a 87 k5 with a 305, 700r4 and lots of rust.
