its an 83 had a 305 th350

i swapped in a 350 with tbi heads, shoe horned the carberated manifold on the heads, swapped in a sm465 tranny along with the hydralic clutch.
suspesnion is built around tuffcountry 6" front packs but removed 3 leaves and shorted a leaf.
rear springs are 64" springs did a custom shackle reversal useing shackles that were built for the front spring packs on my sfa 89 chevy. its an oru part.

everythings tied together with custom crossmembers t-case is skidplated and yada yda.

im kinda getn back into wheeling and fabbing might have some more pics this weekend. ive got pipe and all kinds of metal and will start a rollcage slash cab project. this blazer will never have a blazer top on it ever again.
