I like it. Those Cragars look classic on there.

They are only 15's. I want to go to 18's. Just checking with Cragar if they offer the 5 spoke in that size for my truck. Outside of that perhaps American Racing or Boss.

Re: How about some pics of 2wd Blazers, Jimmy's & Burbs?

just got this 88 Scottsdale.
Noticed that the front is riding on the bumpstops. What's the easiest way to drop another inch or 2 and fix this ride?

Additionally, front drop was accomplished by 3" drop springs. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Great looking rig, I hope to get mine pretty close to this. Yours happens to be the same color and the wheel I would have gone with.

You could do a drop spindle for a 2.5-3" drop and go with less of a drop spring or look into shaving the bumpstop down if there is room. Make sure your shocks are not bottoming out as well.

Re: How about some pics of 2wd Blazers, Jimmy's & Burbs?

Why am I having such a hard time finding a 2wd Blazer? I find 4wd by the dozens. Did they not make a lot of them?

I believe only 7% of total production was 2wd.

It took me a long time to find the right one for me! I still see a bunch on Craigslist or Kijiji, depending on where you are from!
