Re: thinking about getting this in the morning

Definitely looks sharp! Also looks like a car show in the background!

What brand name of gears did you use? Yukon or GM or ???

thanks yes the guys meet every friday night everyone was all over it taking pictures

we went with Yukon gears and axles no noise at all so my guy must have them shimmed just right!

looking at new motors now not sure which direction i will go yet in the meantime she is running great so no rush but i think that will be the next project

Toying with the idea of going with an LS and a 6 speed manual!
that'll wake it up!

Mine have the wider ones from what I can tell. But if I recall a lot g time ago, it came with the more narrower ones. I think I liked the smaller ones but it's been years and years since I've seen it. Sorry, on vacation 😀. Sitting in Clearwater, stayed a few days at Ritz in Sarasota...great time. Couldn't talk wife in seeing a Blazer...for some reason.

We run like 10psi in the tires and go surf fishing at night with a campfire on the beach. Looking forward to going after the motor is dialed in.
