Looks like a fun time, I laughed at the tape on the bathroom door. "You guys taped the fuck out of that door." Hahaha, badass build though, I liked the Blazer before it went under construction, too!

The question then becomes should he run it drive by wire to eliminate those pesky throttle cables that snap:crazy:

Kevin's rig is looking good, 2 transformer truggies in one shop, intense.

Tires/wheels stay the same as well as the axles/trans/t-case. Engine is being swapped from TPI 350 to a LQ9 6.0 and linked front/rear and a bunch-o-tube plus 05 silverado skins. Going to run short bed truck skins on the rear with 4"ish bulge. He'll pull the skins for running in the rocks.

It will be at pismo memorial day with me.

Sony HVR-Z1U

Heims are 1-1/4" and link tube is 2" .250" wall with a .120" 1.5" sleeve inside on the lowers.

I've got an uncompressed 1080p version that is a hair over 60gb... Little big to upload but it looks alot better, alot less jittery.

I just watched the whole thing finally, Kevin throwing himself at the bender was great. Sure looks like he should put some cashola into a hydraulic setup.

He also doesn't like turbo deisels and swears by towing and using big blocks so I guess it starts to make sense. Still sure looks like his back and arms would be happier with him if he'd give hydraulics a shot.

Yes he's quite stubborn... I'm getting him turned around though... I even heard him say, quietly under his breath, that he liked my dodge as I drove him home lol.

Cool vid and build


Nice I heard Oasis haha

What is that called what you did to the frame? Is that just for extra strength?

So what is actually left of the k5? the cab and part of frame?
