linked one ton escalade (coming back soon)

Overview

Edit: I’ve tried replacing pictures since photobucket stopped working, but some of them might not be the same as the original.

Hope this is ok to post here, i like this forum a lot more than pirate. If you don't know my previous k5 its the one with the ugly front end that had a 4bt.

still planning on sticking a 5.3 in it sometime this winter(i already have a donor pickup..or 4), but for now it sits outside with no drivetrain.

So that brings us to the escalade, i bought a 2006 escalade on copart cheap with the intentions of parting it out and keeping the lq9 for a project later, well my dad jokingly said why not just stick the blazer axles under it, and that got me thinking. I didn't want to use the blazer axles but one tons would make it fun.

so thats the plan now

4 linked dana 70S rear with a homemade truss
241/205 doubler- maybe
2.5 x 16 king coilovers
1.25 heims
rock sliders and exocage
41.5 pitbull rockers



obviously buying it on copart it had damage, the door will be easy to replace and ive already started removing the quarter and looking for a new one...even though its eventually gonna get bashed into rocks (or trees if i follow Greg again). other than that the interior is perfect and the rest of the body is completely perfect. for now.

Bought this from my buddy, got a pretty decent deal on it. it has a low mileage (60k) 6.0 and 4l85 in it. it has a brand new set of 19.5 tires with it (the rears arent on) that i had just sold him. planning on cleaning it up. body and paint, and then throw some denali seats and center console in it that i have laying around, or maybe even my spare escalade interior. It surprisingly drives very nice and has a good amount of power. Its in decent shape too, hopefully not gonna need much body...
I was looking for a crew cab or blazer to replace my current blazer Well I found a crew cab project but i think it's too nice (even though it doesn't look like it) to tear up. So here are the plans for it 79 ford HP Dana 60 (3.55) 14 bolt? 6.0/4l80e/246 4-6 inch lift Humvee 37s Car corners are good, the only rust is the rockers but it came with new panels. I have a couple extra pickups with the 6.0 drivetrains so I'll probably be using one of them. I'm taking the Dana 61 out that's in it...
I've read just about every build thread on here and decided to put up some pictures of my blazer. Bought it from my grandpa 4 years ago when I was 15 with a snowplow on the front and sold the plow for what I paid for the blazer. I don't have any pictures of it stock when I got it, had a 6.2 700r4/208 and half ton axles. Put a 6 inch lift and 36 inch military tires on it and wheeled it like that for quite a while. After breaking the 44 a couple times I found a set of Dana 60s on...
