Huh, loads on the ol iphone..
Stock framework, just beefed up.

Stock Subframe upfront and leafsprings mount to unibody outback.
Sliders are a starting point to cage and 4 link the rear to eliminate the leafspring unibody mounts.

If anybody knows a decent cage shop around lettme know.
I wont do a cage... Its gotta protect the fam.

Finally got to meet up with some of you guys. Great time today, here is a link to my pics and a video of Nathan doing work in the quarry. Just missed having a kick ass video of Nate Green's crazy climb in the quarry.

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...8131306&type=3

I am looking for a set 40-42" tires on beadlocks for the Blazer if anyone knows of any for sale.
