i figure ill start a build thread for it on here since not everybody is smart enough to become a member of coloradok5 but here goes.

i started out by tearing up the blazer i had sittin in the driveway for about a year


i then found a pickup that was cheap as fuck it was 250 and had a 14 bolt f/f np205 and an sm465 and of course the cab.
this pic was taken after the doors and front clip were taken off

got the rest of the blazer body off just the motor was left on the frame

tranny and case

got the cab off the frame

new flywheel clutch and trans put on

put the cab on

made the rear cab crossmember

got rid of the spring hangers and stuff to prep for the 52's crossmember

No worries about the gas tank being the limiting factor on your approach angle or am I seeing things wrong?
