This is my 93 S10 Blazer, on steroids. I've done all kinds of stuff to her, most noticeably, a sas. D30 (I know, I know) up front, spring over, and a 8.8 spring over in the back. 4.10's and 33" MT's. Still got a lot to do but it's comin togther.

Ya know, there is a wee bit of prejudice towards non-mopar around these parts. Lots of brand loyalty. Hell, I have a Dodge Ram tattoo on my left shoulder. But I do have to say, for a chev, an S-10 for that matter, it looks pretty badass. I appluad the staight axle (can't stand seeing rigs with IFS lifted way too tall, with way too big tires, it screams street poser. Heaven forbid they go over a speed bump at more than 10mph, the carnage would be incredible).

Got a nice rig there man. Lets see a small block under the hood!

Nothing wrong with that ride, might be a tad underpowered, depending what mill you have in it, but might not too! Looks sharp, and the straight axel makes it a real 4x4

Hey thanks. It has the 4.3 but will have a 400hp 350 sbc under the hood, hopefully by next summer. I know that Mopar fans are probably the most diehard fans and I new I would have to suffer the slings and arrows of the ultimate diehards, doesn't bother me. I thought I'd just post a pic or two.

Availablilty, price, ease of finding parts, width, spring perch placement, and desired gear ratio already in it. All this and I had to get it back on the road at the time because it was my only vehicle and I "had" to start the project when I blew out the stock ifs passenger side hub. I've seen the dana 30 family take plenty of abuse without breaking. My buddy has a supercharged 383 Jeep YJ with stock a stock rear d35 and the engine beats on it with all 800ftlbs of torque and it is still goin strong. I figue, some time down the line, if I need to, I can get a D44 or even a D60 when money, the axle, and a place to do it comes around.

I use to have a s10 blazer, I hated that thing. Mine was a 94 2wd Tahoe Edition.

Now, if you put some dana 60's under it, and add a big block that thing would be awsome! I think mini suv's with big motors and axles are cool, no matter what brand.

I happen to have a my Rangers' suspension lifted 6" with tha stock TTB Dana 35. and rear 8.8. Ask any of the guys in my club and they'll tell you I wheel as hard as any "true" 4x4 with straight axles. 8) I agree with you about street poseurs, they piss me off. For example, theres a guy here that has an all aluminum, blown small block in his latemodel chevy and a 12" IFS lift. One time coming home from a show It kept overheating, bad! It has such a radical cam It'd be totally useless in any type of wheeling except up at the dunes where HP is useful. He constantly snaps CV's like tooth picks with all that power.

first of all it has to be one of YOUR favorites...u gotta like it, noone else, despite that i like trucks like that (not especially the s10 but trucks that are built up like this one...) i like to see that someone´s put all his strength into building his rig (and you see the work that has been done, i hate those polished, high-gloss,24"rims trucks...)

btw: in germany (land of rules and stuff) you could never run a truck with wheels like that...we have to cover the wheels completely :(

(perhaps just because the rich mans car shouldn´t get dirty when you hit the road with ur mudfilled 33"s and spray all that mud over all the cars... 8) but dont care about that, thats just what i think about it...)

greetings, alexander

Any S10 or S15 can be a sweet ride with a sbc swap... I had an 85 2wd with a 355/430HP... I have pics somewhere and I'll post when I find em... Besides losing my lic for the umteenth time it wasnt a bad truck... I actually made more money on it parting out than selling whole... Got $1700 for the motor alone which now resides in my buddy's CJ.... Overall, I made a lil over $3700 on it...
