Flame It ALL
Any news on the spare parts truck?
I posted in your thread... as far as the arms go, I'll keep you updated, as I'm hoping to have them off the truck by DroptWell neither the truck or I will be makin it to Dropt anymore.. :'(
I may still want the upper arms for my blazer, so still keep me posted on those n if I have the money at that time well talk
Hell yeah man! That was definitely me at Camp N Drag... and I appreciate all the time you and your bro took to just let me talk lolWow man this is a crazy long thread read most of it on our way home from ra in millington tn. The crew cab that u refer to a few times is my brothers I believe we talked to you at cnd. Keep up the progress. I know it gets hard some times to keep focused because you have so many wants and time and money is hard to come by. My blazer has been being built for 8 yrs but in the end it's worth it. Good luck hope to see ur truck at dnd.
Jim, as of right now I have zero steering linkage on the 4wd front clip. I had stripped it off back in the day to attempt to build a no-toe steering setup for a blazer I was working on, and while what I built worked great, it used up all the parts of the 4wd steering setup. So for now I will probably just build some kind of rod to tie the two sides together, until I get a donor truck to steal the stock linkages off of or until I fab up some kind of custom steering setup.Brent what are your plans for tie rods? On my sy because the 4wd centerlink is so much wider my lower control arms are hitting the tie rod and holding me up about a 1/4 inch I currently looking into the possibility of using blazer drop spindles on r the truck Im gonna borrow a stock spindle to check for fitment before buying drop spindles
Thanks for the heads up Jim. For now the truck will only be running 18s until I can build tubular arms and buy really expensive high-angle CV joints and then fall into a bunch of money and buy big rims lolI'm thinking I may scrap the idea of the spindle and just pocket the control arm as the rims I'm looking at will only be made in a 18 when you figure out the custom steering setup let me know as 18 is the biggest possible without custom steering linkage
Probably only 2wd for a while, but eerily similar to this:and the first incarnation is... lol
Sounds good man... glad you were able to get some nice tubulars, which IMO will always look better than stock arms, and function better too And no worries about my pie cut uppers, I'm sure I can find somebody to sell them tobtw no need for your pie cut uppers any more as I jumped on a sick deal for a brand new set uof SD uppers to go with my SD lowers and blazer drop spindles that I just got yay lol
