Will you guys still let me visit if I build this instead of my Blazer
hell yeah. one of the coolest trucks I've seen in TTC was the Canadaian built astro wacky flex van. That was sweet. They just have a cool boxy look to them, like a Micro Machine
just make sure it has larger tires and clearance than the one shown
The clearence is accually alot better then it looks and the tires are 35, not sure I would want to go much bigger
More pics and he is selling it
dang! 35's, I guess Astros are bigger than they look to make the 35's look small.
$1700's not bad, but I'm hesitant all that is mounted on the stock AWD running gear, or did I miss something?
Your missing, its a 12bolt with leafs from a chevy and 44 with the same. The AWD setup is IFS and basically an s10. The one benifit of the Astro is in stock form it only weighs about 3200# so 1/2 stuff should handle it well but I have 1-ton stuff so we will see.
ever see this?
Yeah seen his van I'm accually a member on the Astrosafari.com have been since 03'. I had built a 87 Astro with a v8 in it and then decieded that I wanted a Blazer so stripped the Astro now my wife is pregnant with our fourth child so we won't be fitting in the Blazer so I found another Astro and I'm probally going to build it. Don't ant a Burb cause they are to big. The one thing that I like about the Astro is they are relatively light like in 2x4 form #3500 and 4x4 like #5000 loaded. I'm hoping that the gas mileage will be decent when I'm done with it also.
I didn't realize that there was such a thing as "too big".
