Getting the old girl pointed straight down the road again. My toe and go alignment wasn't the best... wasn't my worst either, lol.

Took the old girl up north a couple weekends ago. She did great. Didn't get into as much snow as I had hoped but still found a little. For those in the area, we took the Mountain Loop Highway up to where it's closed for winter.

A quick stop by the river.



Super cool dam we drove across.



Our homeboy Norris came along too!



Snug as a bug in a rug...



I'm guessing this is the last dust up we'll get this year.



And this is why I bought the damn thing... to get to places to do this thing...

Damn, our rigs are almost twins except mine has running boards. Mine is not for skiing (my legs just can't be pointed correctly!) but rather for hunting, fishing and hauling my boat.

This has been a beautiful weekend outside here in the Seattle area. Decided to clean up the whole stable. Blazer cleans up quite nicely!



Now I'm trying to decide the future of my automotive stable. I made a couple of moves for some Miata parts but I'm not sure what's staying or going... decisions are hard.

Wife's car looks great all waxed up. Mazda knows how to do black very well. Also nice to get the winter wheels off.

Nothing too exciting... but I picked up this hitch and bumper a while ago and I was tired of tripping over it in the garage. Since it came attached to a decent white bumper, I just swapped the whole thing over. 8 nuts in total, 4 on each side. Having a stubby ratchet really helped navigate around the tail pipe, and having ratcheting wrenches was nice too.



And all done. I haven't wired up the lights yet. I don't have the heavy duty package so I need to grab a 4 pin to wire in. The 7 pin was already on there so I just left it for now.

Great thread man. Love the Blazer, super clean. You're build is basically the same route I'm going with my Jimmy. You like the KO2s? Also are you on the Overland Bound forums?

Funny I also have a new Mazda sharing the garage with my Jimmy. It's totally a personal goal of mine to own a Miata one day. Rented an ND Miata a while back for a week on business and absolutely loved it. Handled amazing and was 100% livable and comfortable during my commute. Obviously was an auto but even the trans wasn't awful.


My brother isn't a member on the forum but he has a similar pair haha. His Sonoma is on 30s as well. MS3 he autocrosses, bolt ons, tune, TE37s and racing rubber.


Anyway sorry to spam up your thread with my pics. I'm subbed for more updates!

Mazda content is never spam! Hah! Glad you liked the ND. Iíve driven a few and theyíre an amazing chassis. Iíd gladly have one but Iíd want the RF for sure.

The KO2ís have been awesome. Havenít really had them off-road yet and not as much time in the snow as Iíd hoped. I also donít have the g80 so thereís no help in the rear. Might be going to an ORV Park next weekend. Will report back if so.

The only other 4x4 forum Iím on is pirate. Just a bunch of Miata forums otherwise.

Glad Mazda content is welcome! That rental was an RF. Gorgeous in black.


My 6 year old Michellins were scary last winter, the KO2s are definitely my top choice for replacements at the moment and a G80 is also on my list of wants. Definitely report back on the ORV park!

Overland Bound is a pretty great community, lots of good info on gear and camping stuff too. I think I have a profile on Pirate but their mobile site sucks so I don't frequent them much. I do lurk some on Mazdas247...
