    I can build one of the following:

    a 66 scout has title runs currently

    83 s-10(no title)doesn't run

    84 k5 has title doesn't run

    my parts list is as follows

    3/4 ton with 4.10's
    1/2 tons with 3.40 ish
    xj jeep with 3.73's

    35" mickey thompsons
    37" ssr's
    36" sx's

    built 350 (making a solid 350 horse on the dyno)
    rebuilt 305 was a tbi motor with a cam to please the computer
    stock 350

    th350-208
    465-208
    465-205
    th350-s-10np207
    t-18 to dana20

    everything from stock springs (52, 56, 57 and 64's) to jeep coils

    put the s dime body on the blazer chassis and run the built 350/350/208 combo with the 3/4 ton axles and 4.10's on the 35" mickeys

    I think the scout body on the blazer chassis would look cooler:D

    I vote for the Scout. I am doing a Jeepster Commando body on K5 chassis and I want to fit 37's on it with as little lift as possible, I want to keep it long, low and wide for stability.

    Good luck!
