    i did a blazer, but kept my frame, but i re used the radius arms.my tires dont stick out that far, oh and i drive mine daily. you still got the 3.50 gears?i do, and with the stock 4.3 it still goes pretty good. and f.i. is pretty sweet too.
    currently building a toyota. i'm sorry.

    Very nice, I am not too sure what kind of gears are in it I should inquire about that tommorrow. Also this rig has like no flex at all so I have to switch out the current leafs/shocks and get some new ones and mount the axles over the leafs. since this is all like body lift. More of a mud racer then a wheeler but still a fun toy.

    i ysed skyjacker cherokee 6" springs in my front, and stock s10 springs over the axle in the rear. but i have a totally different frame. mine flexes alright, but the locker makes up for less articulation

    hah nice, Yeah mine is mostly body lift. it has spring over but the springs are stiff and almost straight across. so I definitely have to fix that.

    so its been a looooong week trying to get this thing ready for the trails this weekend. most of it was chasing an oil pan that would fit on my "unknown" 350 chev engine but after sourcing one it appears it is from a 80-81 camaro.

    But yea who would have thunk it would take 3 days to change out an oil pan
    Also I added a new breather to it since the previous owner wasnt running one.
    I also did a tune up to it(new plugs, wires, dist cap and rotor) which went flawlessly.

    But yea heres some pics of the new items.

    I still got a couple more things to do to it before the weekend and that includes:
    bleed the brakes.
    grease it all up.
    get my tow bar tabs welded on.

    not trying to be rude, but are you sure its a bronco frame? im pretty sure they were all coil spring front. and i suggest looking into getting some new front leaves. blocks on a front axle arent the best idea. just ideas. im not trying to point out fault. other than a little bit of surface rust. it looks good man.

    thanks and yea i am not too sure myself I am going by what I have been told any input would be greatly appreciated... I also heard front axle might be from a scout....
    Also the suspension was setup by previous owner I plan on getting some new leafs that will get rid of the 2" blocks and lift it 2-3" in the front to get some flex also plan to get some new ones for the rear as well and put the spring under the axle and lift her 3-5" to get some flex going. but that wont be till next year

    check out the steering, i think its a blazer frame. they are factory leaf front, and passengers side drop diff. they also dont have crossover steering. check out a fullsize chevy and see if the frontend looks the same. s10 bodies on blazer frames are kinda common-ish.

    So after i took the dist apart and spark plugs out found out that this thing was only runnin on 6 cylinders 2 of them had the plugs broken off at the dist... so lucky i did the tune up.

    Here is some video footage of it revving... I have some footage at night showing the flames but didnt pull it off the camcorder yet...
