The original post by this name has became so long that it is taking forever for me to open, so I figured I'd start a new one... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

I've got a '91 S10 Blazer 4.3 Sport all stock. Because of the stupid norwegian tax-laws it's a two seater. Removal of the back seat
makes it an affordable 4x4 here in Norway. It's my wife who use it mostly, but I tend to prefer it when towing instead of our other
car, a Samurai. Have had for two years now but I'm selling it as we need the back-seat now that we're having a baby.
Problems: Lock-up solenoid in tranny, and the %&@ing vacuum switch on the transfer case. How does it come out of there??
also smashed the rear side window when my cargo tilted inside VERY expencive, thank god for insurance.
It's a great car on icy and snowy roads and, a great hauler. Had about 2-3 tons (metric) of firewood on a trailer through
pretty rough terrain once.

Hey guys, some of you know me and some of you don't so here is my chance to share what I have with those I don't know.

First of all: 94 S-10 2wd Ext. Cab (2.2 liter 4cyl-5 spd)

New modifications:
Front End: Camburg Engineering Custom Long Travel Arms (14" of travel-4.5" of lift) Bilstein Semi-Race Fiberglass Front Fenders
Rear End: (7" of travel-4' of lift) Rear Add-a-leaf (stiffened the rear end) with Bilstein Semi-Race, shaved rear fenders.
Tires and Rims: 33" 12.50" BFG AT KO's (Baja Cut) on Outlaw 2 Rims 15"x7"
Engine Modifications: Volant Cold Air Intake, MSD Super Conductor 8.5mm wires, SplitFire Plugs.

Thats my baby, taken it to the local dunes and mashed it for days. It can go anywhere all the 4x4's go and I raced a bunch of them up the monster dune "New Competition Hill" and beat almost all of them. It is great fun, and even though it has the four banger it still has better traction that the larger motors, which i found spin the tires alot more than the little engines.

Future Mods:
1 Rear Bilsteins Full Race Shocks w/ Resevoirs. Cut through the bed to an external shock hoop and spare tire mount. 2 Front and Rear custom Tubular Bumpers w/ skidplate.

Fun for all things, great in the sand, but it's also my daily driver. It's a blast to have around, and the chicks dig it! For me it's not about show, it's all about go. I got really lucky and found out you could make a nice looking truck sick as hell.

Thats all for now, Catch ya guys later and...

...Happy PreRunning

Used to have an 89 Jimmy, loved it, had almost 200,000 mi on it, got rid of it and got a 91 4dr, a work in progress. Still mostly stock,
but am getting my rocker panels line-x'd in a couple weeks, and swapping tires, I hope to have pictures posted when this gets done.

Just added another one to my collection, an '89 Baja longbed. Its got the 4.3,
5 speed, tubular bumpers, bucket seats, rollbar, factory off-road lights, white
with red interior, and it was cheap! I think the white ones are pretty rare.

I own a 95 s-10 truck, although it's stock right now, I just brought it not to long ago, I'm looking for lifts for it. I'm running 30X9.50R15 on it with a V4.3 under the hood with a K&N air filter.

I have a 93 Blazer 4x4 with a 4.3l. Great truck, but the rear main seal is blown. Just bought it, looking for a lift and maybe a v8 swap.
