    Ive decided on a color change. Going metallic blue. I know this will decipoint a lot of people. But I feel as I will not do the actual trucks its justice. So im going for something different. What I wanted our huge blazer to be! ( can you tell we were a little addited to blazers yet?). So, switching over to the super swampers and proline beadlocks.
    So the agenda this weekend : get the links made, make sliders, paint body, make rear tail gate, and make the mount for the front grill. and still have time for a trail run lol. Theyre will be another big update in 2 weeks as we are making the floor pan, and the roll cage.

    Thanks,

    Nick
