knixon804 k5 blazer one ton and ls swap

  • hey guys here is an accelerated version of the past to the present.
    My buddy bought this clean blazer last year and brought it to my house for a one ton swap. the swap was 14b/60 combo with open front and spool rear, 4.10 gears. while doing the swap i was standing underneath the rig admiring how clean it was for a michigan k5. i wanted it but the time wasn't right so i finished the swap and lead him on his way.
