Default It Lives!

So after rolling the blazer, I finally got around to working on it again.
Currently the body is just sitting on there... I had to buy a body lift because it was hitting the trans, but all I have to do is put the interior back in, change the plugs, new leafs all the way around they are from an f150 hopefully they will be soft enough. My plans were to build a flatbed for it, but a buddy of mine found one that was for a yota cheaper than I could build one. all it lacks from having a full 6ft bed is 4 inches, so ill let that hang off the frame and build a new bumper.
I'm hoping to have it ready by next weekend for a big mudbog thats coming up. I'll keep y'all updated!

Well I made it, and got 2nd place! My front pinion but came off about 3/4th of the way through the pit, thankfully that's a cheap fix. Its together, and running great, but I still have a lot of work to do.

I finally took it crawling, and spun a rod bearing, it did great though for the shape my tires are in, and the fact that it had 300k+ on it.

I bought a TBI 4.3 with 90k on it, and my plans are to swap the heads/intake if the cam is any better from the vortec ill swap it in too.... my question is will the TBI motor work with my computer. I haven't seen any crank position sensor so that raised my curiosity if it would even work before i dumped money into a gasket kit and head bolts.

Thanks!
