      i bought this 96 tahoe with a few little issues... it was a repo and it needed a radiator and a waterpump (and some different wheels) but ive always loved old blazers and these 2dr's are the last of them.

      this is what it looked like when i first got it.



      absolutely hated the wheels but thats all i had so i colormatched the centers to tone em down a bit.



      then everything continued to break and go south and it ended up looking like this for a couple months..





      then i finally buckeled down and did some work. rebuilt the trans, put a new rear in and lifted it up a bit (3in BL and some blocks and a t-bar crank)



      got some 35's





      took it to mudfest and had some fun doing doughnuts and beating the sh*t out of the thing...



      ended up demolishing another 10 bolt...







      that was lucky number 3... no more 10 bolts and no more messing around. This time i got a 14 bolt semifloat rear out of a light duty 2500. should hold up a little better i hope.

      Gunna be doing a straight axle swap here soon hopefully within the next couple months and thinking about goin crazy and cutting the roof off somthing like this:

      So sad to see this being beaten on. I do like the SAS idea though with 1 tons. Are you regearing at all?
