    sweet good to see another blazer buildup in a sea of jeeps.
    is that a d300 with a 241 range box?
    here is my build thinking about some tcase upgrades myself.
    might go with a 203 range box with a ford 205 on the backhttp://www.jeepkings.ca/forums/showthread.php?t=81561

    Nice, that looks awsome. I shouldn't be far behind you guy's. I still have a few more parts to get but I am almost there. Soon I will be starting modding. Nothing is better then hearing the power of a chevy in the morning. GET-R-DONE.

    Ya info on the Tranny and T-cases. Did you buy or built the adaptors. I want to keep my D300 when I go to my SBC and a 203/205 is a huge tcase setup.
    90 YJ. 4link F/R, 16" SAW Airshocks, 32bolt Beadlocks, D60/14bolt, Full Hydro/Hydroboost L67 3.8SC 700r4 NP231/D300
    02 Yukon XL on 37's DD
    91 Cherokee Juggy scrapped for Greener Grass
    I prefer to build it and not buy it, you see it, I probably made it.

    last season i ran the dana 300 behind my 4L60E tranny using a novak adapter. with a little modification, a np231 bolts right up to that same adapter. so i will be running a 231 based crawl box. my buddy and i made the adapter plate and clocking ring. i am waiting for a tool to arrive to cut the splines for the mid shaft and then she's ready to go in.
    i agree that a 203/205 setup is enormous. the dana 300 is a great case and its small size makes it easy to fit in the vehicle.

    Actually I am modifying a 99 Sonoma, but basically it's the same as a S10.

    i have a 2001 Sonoma with 6" Superlift and 31s. i will offer some advice. CUT OUT THE F$%KING INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! take it from me, with larger than stock tires / offset wheels, she will become a dangerous money pit. i am changing unit bearings twice a year (at $300/unit) and the idler arm is worn out one day after i install a new one. aside from that, the steering sucks. it is sloppy, hard to turn, and the steering radius (which was never great) is shot as soon as the lift goes on. I am actually using my tow rig as my daily driver right now. not sure what your plans are for the little truck, but there's some advice. I have a HP Dana 44 and Ford 9" waiting to go into my Sonoma.

    the ram was $170.00 it is the canadian made one. the PA brand ones are like 5 inches longer overall for a cylinder with the same stroke. it is a 1.5" bore, so a pretty little guy, with 6 inches stroke. if you notice in the photo, i haven't even got the other end attached to the tie rod yet, so i don't know how responsive it is. i am anticipating it to be a little slow, but it seems like a lot of people run 2 inch bore rams, so we'll see. if it is slow, i will either make some mods to the pump, or else get the PSC high output pump. just got the engine running again tonight after doing all new seals and gaskets, found out that i have a leak i my box. it is the first steering box i have ever rebuilt, so it is bound to happen. i should be changing that seal tomorrow and getting that tie rod mounted, so i will let you guys know. here's a picture of the steering oil reservoir that i made to handle the additional fluid. My cooler should be in tomorrow.
