PostSubject: My Trazer build!   25th January 2012, 12:55 am

I started with a 85 k5 blazer. Im a chevy guy by heart and it only seen right to stay chevy. It started out a 1985 1/2 ton four speed with a 208 transfer case and 305... I have done a lot over the four years having it..I killed the little 305 and installed a 350 bored .40 over ran strong for 3 months! then agian died in the water. I then desided to waste some tax money on a 355 stright out of the shop! Made a heck of a differeance i done the swap in my driveway with barrowed hoist and a few tools. I've been luck the motor has hung in there and work out nice. as far the trans...its held up good but it has ate 2 clutchs and is now on its 3rd and counting. It had 1/2 running gear with a gm 10 bolt in the front and a gm 10 bolt in the rear, geared with 2.76s...airplane gears! For the 2.76 gears with a 305 with the 4 speed it was a heck of a gas saver idea but for wheeling it wasnt worth crap... but i got to say going from 32-33-36s i didnt brake a axle at all. Grant it it didnt have the power to brake the axles...lol.
Two summers ago i got a good deal from a friend and upgraded my axles to a gm 14 bolt in the rear and a dana 44 front axle with 3.73 gears...I just recently upgraded to 4.10s!







More to come later!

Ok some more story in pics!
3/4 ton axles and 40" gumbos!

1/2 ton axles and 35" MTZ

K5 4" lift and 35s

3/4 tons 36" H1 tires Fully welded in Rear and Front! Climbing a 36" irok tire!

The New Cab! for the k5

2 common longs and 2 yank straps and added 2 large rachet straps to hold and level out

Pulled the frame around with the 4 wheeler and used a large bar to turn the wheelsand line up the frame with the cab.

I let all the air out of the rear tires to help it move under the frame....but then we had to have more power to move the frame with flat tires...Think god kymudhunter left the keys in the truck and a little fuel in it!


Here we see just were the hole needs to be for the shifter to come through the floor...Abd start to lat the cab back to cut the floor out. Notice the yellow strap under his foot going backward off the a frame....if not for this strap the weight of the cab would have fkiped the a-frame forward throughing the buddy off....it could have been bad!

Cab swap done now i have to make it all work agian...lol
