the bracket I was working on for the left side, I jacked it up

so last night I ended up staying up till 2am and built another bracket from scratch

I just need to take it back part and paint it

and then I can put the drop spindle back on the truck

s-10 blazer 2 inch drop spindle, dehumped lca, flat plate upper arms, home made caliper bracket, z06 calipers,
home made air bag brackets, SS-7 air bag

got the spindle and the caliper bracket painted, and let it dry pretty good in the AZ heat

I still need to put the grease fittings into the ball joint and each side of the upper arm, I added the upper arm set up myself, I heard poly bushings like to make noise when they get dry

small you tube video of playing a song from the end of my driveway


I think the bass hits better out doors, probably because the style of box the subs are in

single 15 in svc 4 ohm cv stroker, being powered by a Mackie 1400i, 1400 watts mono at 4ohms

mid/tops being powered by a qsc usa 850 at 8ohms per ch, 270watts per ch, crossed over at 110hz's

mid tops are some cv pd18's, 18/12/tweeter


I still need to build a grill for the boxes

and my phone sucks to record stuff



its to hot to mess around with the mini and the truck right now, its super hot out and im chilling till it cools down some

got the pair hooked up on the Mackie amp in stereo at 500watts per box, they get loud and deep, but not as crazy as they did with 1400watts

I have to go get some y-cables to hook up the pair of qsc amps, those amps mono will push 1100watts to each box

they should get pretty loud with that set up

im going to cut out the grills on Monday, I hope, if the weather isn't to crazy hot

I spent about a week cleaning the garage and trash stuff I dont need and got it somewhat done and I wanted to work on the truck, do something for it, so I started to play with the engine harness

I got this extra 99-02 wiring harness, was told it was on a 6.0/4l80e, so I got it because it was a 80e harness, but it turns out it wasn't

so I converted it to be a 80e harness, added the extra vss and moved a few pins around on the trans connector

removed all the a/c bs, and rear o2's and other emissions bs that I dont need or care about......the og engine for this truck had a blow by tube on it.....


started with this stock harness
