Went to a Bigger Blazer

So my biggest blazer to date landed at the shop the other night.

Did some trading/swaping with another board member grendel. (thanks John)
He built this monster, one ton running gear, cross over steering, 4whl disc brakes, twin t-cases, built turbo 400...the list goes on and on.
Currently sitting on 38's w/5:13 final gear ratio.

Guess it's time to run some trails with it.

Here's one pic, just goofing on a small dirt hill.

Did you install that shifter?

BTW, final gear ratio in low/low/low is:

2.48 (transmission)x2 (torque converter)x2 (t-case one)x 2 (t-case two)x 5.13 (axle R+P)= 101.7792

Considered to be about perfect for crawl ratio with an automatic.

Of course, you can switch off anyone one of those, but the 5.13.

Nice truck! Might be a greenhorn question, but how does a guy tie in the second transfer case? Congrats-

total poser pic
Kids liked it though.
Gave each one a ride in it which of course included climbing the poser bump.

Have a couple odds and ends to clean up before I can wheel it but then I'll take it out and get happy.

P/O (grendel) kept the gauge cluster of after market goodies
(it was cool/worth keeping) so I need to send him back the wires/fittings to go with those and install another harness/guage set.

the doubler, or two transfer cases uses the range box from a np 203 with the chain portion removed, and a custom made plate bolted to the back, then a np 205 is coupled to the back of the plate. A np 203 has a 2.01:1 low range, and the np 205 has a 1.96:1. When both the the range box from the np 203, and the np 205 are in low range, you have essentially a 4:1 low range. This is better for rock crawling and so on.

have you figured out how to bring all your blazers to Pigeon Forge, TN next spring?

It's called golf because all the other four letter words were taken.

It's easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission.

Been messing with the little/detail stuff some.
Changed out the grille while I was at it.

To be able to go play, I still need to install the B&M shifter and do some final welding.
Need to install a wiring harnes also.
Course having it licensed would be a good idea too...

French, the doubler's pretty cool...talk about having a low gear!
