K5 Blazer Dually With 10 bolt rear! AAAAAAAH!

OK, so i was sitting in the school parking lot, just chillin, waiting for school to start, and this dually k5 blazer pulls up with like 8" of lift. So i'm thinkin this this is pretty cool. He's got like a gazillion lights, which is a little strange so, so i decide to go over and check this thing out. Look underneath and start looking for the 1 ton running gear, and i find a 10 bolt rear with a wimpy little axle truss. OMG, i was pissed. Totally ruin a cool truck. SO i decide its all show, but then i look at it again, and im like, its not set up for offroading, and its not even in good shape. Geez

THis is just a bad as when i saw a 2001 Silverado 4x4 3/4 ton with a 12" wiplash suspension lift that didn't have a front drive shaft! What is with ppl these days!

You dont need a front dive shaft if it never leaves the road. Think of all the weight savings you get with out one. Probably 2-3 mpg more without one

I donno, I think the weight you save without the front driveshaft would be made up by the 44" tires that I'm sure were on it.
