Future of this $100 blazer

5.7 vortec v8 mild cam (towing power and power for larger tires)

6" suspension lift (larger tires and a little more off-road capable)

2" body lift (for extra clearance for 35"s and for a little extra room under the hood)

4.56:1 axle gears (return the power band to a more comfortable spot to help with "passing gear" and make it so I don't have to put in low range to take off)

Custom winch bumpers front and rear (never know where you'll get stuck or your buddy will get stuck)

35x12.50-15 rapped around a set of 15x8 ultra 50/51 black wheels ( why not ! )

Alpine stereo (head unit, speakers)

Pair of 12" subs and either a 760w or 1000w amp idk yet depends which sounds better in my eagle as this is a side project

Brush guard with headlight grilles

Lighted roof visor

Custom tail light guards
So yeah a lot of work ahead if I missed something I'll repost it

Are you doing an SAS? I don't think you will find 4:56s for the stock axle diffs but I could be wrong. Not to mention a v8 with big tires will be breaking your cv's constantly.

I would rather stick with ifs even considered building portal boxes for front and rear ... As for 4.56:1 gears I've found them on 2 different websites including summit.... I'm not to concerned for my cvs at this time as I haven't been hard core off-roading in 5 years lol but I do mild trails with my car (1982 Amc eagle wagon) I more need this thing to tow it but off and mild off roading when I want to go camping
