Hey guys, I have been lurking for a while now since I picked up an 85 blazer. I finally signed up not long ago and after having a horrible time trying to search for answers I went ahead and bought a membership. I must say it was a dang good investment. Like I said I recently picked up a butchered 85 blazer that is riding on 42" TSL's and 8" superlift. The engine is a carb'ed 350 with the 700r4 and np 208 transfer case. I originally had a Dana 44 and a 14 bolt rear axle under it front was open and the rear had a gov-lock that never seemed to engage. While wheeling I blew the rear drive shaft and a u-joint on the front axle. So I started the upgrades. I recently threw a Chevy Dana 60 under it. I have 5.13 gears, arb's for both front and rear. Ready to be installed. And getting my onboard air setup for the arb's which will have their own compressor and then I will run an old York for actual air for tools and tires. My plans for this rig are to eventually along the way convert to a trail only rig. Thinking of narrowing the front and rear. I feel this will be easier then trying to remove enough metal to prevent rubbing. Im looking to go with a sm420 or sm 465 tranny and np 205(already have) and eventually 203/205 doubler with the 4:1 kit in the range box. One thing I did notice with these rigs is that they are extremely top heavy. Is there any way to minimize this? Adding the dually d60 front and removing the top helps a little but not really enough. any recommendations on mods that will benefit my rig feel free to say. i actually have alot planned for this rig. but would take a century to list. all in all the grand total right now is around 15K.Well im sure you guys want to see my junk so here it is.
