aznative Hi,

New member here. Just saying hello.

SBC_Guy I'm a noob. Guilty as charged.

I've lurked on here for years and finally signed up. I live in SoCal now, and wheel an 82 Blazer with light mods. I like anything to do with square body Chevys, and used to daily drive a 79 Corvette when I lived in Utah. Can't plate the car in L.A., so it is waiting for me in storage back in UT.

Engineer by trade, moved to CA for work.

SW Cook Hello Pirate members, long time reader, first time poster and wanted to say hello to the membership.

Tried to fill out all my box'set to remove any doubts and hope I done so correctly.

Seems like a lifetime of wheeling, with a love of all things that idle and romp. I'm for the most part a trial and error, self taught fella and feel lucky to have watched some very good wrench turners and enjoyed watching the WWW expand my mindset exponentially.

I'm a current and former owner of Square Body Chevy's in the 1 Ton variety, have an affliction for Jeeps and my love of automobiles was initiated at a very early age, then grew greatly while reading through the pages of auto magazines and my local off roading trips that began in the late 70's.

I'm not one to speak without knowing, but I am one to ask questions to remove my doubt. I will speak if it adds to the discussion and will frequently be a sponge as I've done for many years here. This site has incredible depth and we are all very lucky for such.

Looking forward and best wishes.

Daiwamaster Hi, I'm David, an electrician from Montreal who also does custom work and other gigs. I'm signing up here because I'm doing research on axle and differentials for an upcoming custom build and I need to get schooled and taught about what's out there so I can improve my design a step further.

I'm no car mechanic, and only off road I do is mountain biking and dirt roads in my hatchback, but I'm sure that my next build is gonna be worthy of your time. Keep an eye on new threads in the coming weeks to find out more ! Nice to get to join you all

Family4x4project New here used to be minimally capable of car stuff like oil changes, break line/pad changes, fuel line/injectors changes. Basic stuff way back before cars became so computerized. It's been about 13 years since I've even changed my own oil. So I'd consider myself a zero experience car louver. But now I've got a boy that's turning 10 and I'd like to start a family project of building a 4x4 3+ seat something that we can tear up the deserts of Nevada with. No idea where our how to even begin. Hoping to find that info somewhere in these forums.

Just a 4"lift but will cut out fenders to clear those meats. Too high is a no no.
Be sure to post some pics of that - can't have TOO many Ramchargers around here.

Hotrodssnova New member here. Great site with lots of info.
Not new to the cj5. Had one back in the early 90s.
What I find amazing is the lack of t176 transmissions. Nothing around houston.

So this is my check in

hey everyone, I was sent here by a friend who has been giving me advice on converting my 1990 Chevy G30 cutaway van into, well basically into my house. He said this is a good place to go for advice on part of the project that he said was over his head.

so here I am. Thanks in advance!
