Default 2000 4x4 with 6" lift in progress



i bought my 4x4 2000 blazer about a month ago..paid a grand bc the front end was shot..alot of negative camber in the front and ride height was veeery uneven..upper control arms were too short..bushings shot..and no sway bar bushings..when i started looking under the truck, i realized that someone put alot of time and $ into it..it has a 6" lift on both front control arms..torsion and crossbar lift..and the leafs under the axel in the rear..and everthing has been welded to the original frame...so far ive evened out the ride height by adjusting the torsion bars..put new castor camber bolts in the upper ca and pulled them out to the max..all new sway bar setup..new spindle and bearing on the pass side..new brakes all the way around..and i have the new u.joints for both drive shafts just have to beat the old ones out..changed the rag joint for the steering shaft which was a massive pain..full alignment..and tightened the steering box..tore out honeycomb air flow restrictor from the maf..ran a cool air hose to the throttle body for better throttle response..and thats about all i have done so far! still have to figure out why i cant lock into 4high..4low works fine but not 4high..those tranfer cases can be a pain..i also want to switch to a dual fan instead of this big dumb bulky fan in it..also need to do plugs and wires asap but need the money..so far its coming along great and this site has helped me through alot of it..well this is my first thread and post on here and i figure i will have many questions to come..so all the support i can get will be helpful.

Not bad at all. Of course I have a bias towards black 4 door 2000s.
