I know it's not a fullsize, but it is a GM and I like the GMFS input. Building it for my female, she wants to bog it but I want to crawl it. Double duty here he comes. Russ is his nickname, it's short for rusty.


Specs:
1994 S10 Blazer
Northern truck, probably spent most of it's life in Mass. rather than Florida where we bought it.
149,000 miles
4.3L/4L60e/np233/7.2IFS/7.5rear with a 3.42 gear

Will be:
1994 S10 Blazer
Homebrew brackets with 3" Waggy springs up front. Spring over axle.
Driver s10 main leaf broke, so running 1/2 of some 56s with the dime overload. Spring over axle.
Same motor, trans, case for now; untill it 'splodes.
Waggy D44 front, 4.56s, open
AMC 20 rear, 4.56s welded
Planning on running my 37" Boggers, hopefully it's going to be a big enough truck for her.

It's been fun so far, other than battling the rust issues. Hope it to be done by the end of June for a Trucks Gone Wild ride. If not, no biggie.

Eh, I would have gone with something other than the AMC 20. Other than that, thank you for putting in some tech amidst a sea of, well, non-tech.

The choices are slim for non-Toy, 6lug axles that are <64" WMS. It's the 1piece equipped axle and I feel comfortable with it for now. Sooner or later, if/when it breaks I'll 8lug the front and runa C&C 14FF with H1s..

Poo poo on that breaux. That's too much work. The sf is nice and comfortable in my truck. I'd hate to cause such separation anxiety to my truck taking it out and putting something else in.

I'll try and snap a few next time she comes and helps with it.

AND

Yeah she has friends. But they aren't anything like her. She's one of a kind.
