Owner Comments:  Hello, I am very impressed with the site you have.  I have really enjoyed the tech articles, and the links are very helpful as well.  I am an avid GM man, and love the look and style of the older Chevy's that you show on your site.  Here are a few pictures of my 1990 Blazer that I am in the process of building.  I own a small business here in West Virginia that mainly involves installing 12V accessories into vehicles, it is my hobby and passion.  I love the idea of taking an "older" vehicle and customizing it to be more modern than most "new" cars built today.  So far, I have a remote start, keyless entry, and security planned with a "few" personal upgrades.  A dual battery setup is already underway, and I am in the process of building the on board air setup using a York 210 series compressor.  Chassis wise, it has a six inch Skyjacker suspension lift, quad shock setup in front with Skyjacker dual steering stablizers.  The interior is completely stripped and being prepared for Rhino lining and carpet, with custom enclosures for the audio system (twelve speakers total thus far, with two amps), and a fifteen inch flat screen that will fold down from the roof.  I still have a few bugs to work out, but that is the part I love the most...the challenge.  Future plans call for The 1/2 ton axles to be swapped for a 14 bolt FF in the rear and a Dana 44 up front (4.10 to 4.56 gears), JB Conversions short output shaft conversion kit for the NP241 case, 2 1/2" dual exhaust using Afterburner ceramic coated headers and Flowmaster 40 series mufflers.  Keep up the excellent work that you are doing with the site.
