Took my Blazer down to my buddies Tow yard in lodi and used his power washer to clean the coating off the frame. Damn that washer worked great.




Made it easier using a tow truck to lift the Blazer to clean the frame better.

Passenger side A arm removal. Actually it was really easy to remove, 4 bolts holding them on with the 2 bolts for the torsion bar and 2 bolts for the shock, beside the steer arm which doesn't count. The removal was easy and both sides came off complete.




Want to buy some crack Never have a Plumber work on your rig!!!!

John (another buddie that came over to help, thanks) started cutting out the front cross member.




In all this has gone easy so far, still have more to do, and I will be back at it tomorrow.

Wow don't tell the wife what I have done.

Assembling parts for similair swap. Stick with it! Seems like lots of guys on here are starting builds like this and then falling off the planet.
Are you sticking with the drum brakes on the 9?
Plans for mounting the leafs to the 44 without hitting the radius arm mounts? Doesn't seem like there's much room for that on the driver side, but I'm guessing you know something I don't.
Subscribed for sure.

The guy that is doing my build which I helping and learning from, says that there is enough room to get a perch in there. I though the same thing u did. I will up date pics on that as soon as we get to that point.

They worked great for me both on road and off road, even had them in the snow and they did great. Just a little noisy on the pavement but thats ok. I have four matching tires and one off ball that are all the same size which I was going to Craigslist for $300.00, I paid $780.00 for all five.

Got more done tonight before I head out of town for four days to Carson City Nv. I want to do more but have to wait.

Here are the shocks I bout for the build. I got them off Ebay for less than $200.00 for all four and they are new, only missing one sticker.
Fronts are RS99012 12.875 travel and rear are RS99112 9.875 travel.


Did some bracket cutting or my buddy Mike did, I watched and took the pics.






Hell I gave him the touch, might as well have him cut the brackets off for me. The only brackets he didn't cut where the shock brackets but those are going to go to. I am planning on use the Ford shock brackets once I figure out the part number that I need.

A few more pics of taking unwanted brackets off.




Here a pick after one side was cleared of the brackets.

Ok it was my turn to get dirty!!!! So here are some pics of the grinding that I did. I still need to finish up the bottom side of the frame, but that will wait for now as it’s a pain in the rear to grind.








I don’t think thats all that bad for someone that doesn’t grind, still need to finish the bottom of the frame on both sides. I also got the new cross member cut and the hangers cut for the font, but no pics of those right now.

Get one of these from your local dealer and ditch the remote oil filter and the leaks that go with it.

Thanks for the info knaffie, I was planning on moving it back to the block but I just figured that it would just screw back on, after removing the adapter. Thanks for the info.

Just order these Ford E5TZ-18183-A shock towers from http://www.partsmike.com/store/store.php for $17.95 each that was cheaper than the dealer wanting $21.99ea.

My shop was a little slow today so my nice Boss told me I can have the guys out back build my rear bumper. The original plan was to build it out of 6x2 (188), but we didn't have any and I couldn't find any around town here except from PDM which I would have had to wait until Monday to get.

So I dug around in the scrap pile and found 6x3 (188) and 4x3 (120), and this is what we built. (I know its big over done, but I like it )




Fab Time

Well bumper is done and just need to be cleaned up, which is happening right now as I post this.





Now I need to get it home and get it attached to the Blazer.

Well had to put my project off to get another rig ready for the 4th of July rubicon trip and now that its over with we are back onto my build.

I last left off with the rear bumper being made. I got it home and test fitted it and it looked good but the sides where to long (14" long), so I had the sides taken down by 6" and now the rear bumper is perfect. Cleaned it up and mounted it.

Ok we built the new front cross member out of 3x3 (.250) tube and made the mount brackets for the front 52" leafs. We inset the 3x3 9" in the existing frame for support, and strength.
