    Got a new toy today

    1984 K5 Blazer. 9" lift on 38" tires. 360 Chevy with a built th350. 12,000lb winch. 1 ton axles. Thing is a freaking tank. Needs some body work but looks to be a solid foundation for a father daughter project. She's so happy that we own a monster truck now. 2016 Charger Scat Pack/LMI Intake/Hemifever tune/3.70 gears/Borla Atak/AES bypass/eBay longtube headers

    I'm looking forward to it!! Worst part is I haven't even seen it!! My brother in law picked it up for me today and it's 3hrs away. I'm dying right now.

    Plan is to fix the body and convert it to a 5spd for now. Then I'll go and start working on the engine. It needs to come down though. 9" is way to much and 20's don't belong on an off road truck. Looking into cut fenders right now.

    6hrs later and it's at my house. It's a little rougher than I expected but mostly it's just exterior panels. Everything underneath is pretty solid. Rust is better than I thought.

    New alternator and battery later and she lives again. Was digging through the glovebox and found the original options list. Factory quad shocks up front, factory AC, two tone paint, 302 work a 4spd auto. Pretty cool.

    Sound great! My best friend and his dad restored a '78 Blazer when we were in high school. Love 'em!
    I hope it tracks straight- a buddy in college bought a beater Blazer for $600 that had big tires and 4" suspension lift (blocks in the rear) and 3" body lift. Rode like it was on I-beams and the steering linkage wasn't upgraded right so it wandered trying to go straight. He got pulled over twice on suspicion of DUI when he was sober!

    Tracks straight as an arrow. Steering box could use a rebuild but the front end is all new and solid.

    Remind your daughter about how quickly those high vehicles can turn over in curve or a quick lane change.

    In 12 years when she gets ready to drive I'll worry about that.

    It'll never fit in the garage. My half ton barely fits height wise. But it is going to get dropped with smaller wheels and tires. Going to drop it about 3" in suspension and then go from 38's on 20's to 35's on 17's. I'd do 15" wheels but they won't clean the one ton brakes and drums.

    I bought one of these for my daughter when she got her license in 96. She said it was too much and too big until she hit her first tree. That scratched the truck up a bit, bent the bumper but she was OK. She never said another word about it being too big.

    Got to tinker on it today. Installed the Edelbrock off road kit which has small springs to keep the needles seated during rough and off camber areas. Also blocked the fuel passages between bowls and reset the float levels from 1/4" to 7/16". Installed a 1" phenolic spacer to help with heat sink. Carb is nasty so when I go to swap the vortec heads on that I dropped at the machine shop yesterday I'll give it a good clean up and rebuild. Found some trash in one of the strainers so had to clean that up.

    Finally got a car cover for it also. Now I can pull the doors and top off and not worry about the rain.

    Weather is getting nice. Time for the doors to come off. Leaving the roof for now so I'll have some protection for my next rock crawl in a few weeks and then it'll come off.*
