A Pumpkin brand 7" Android unit.

Took a little massaging and filing, but she fits! Seems to work pretty good. Will have to get everything set up over time using it.







haha im doing that with mine currently. Looks amazing.

Time where can I get more of that?????
I just got my new leaf springs installed. I got them from general spring KC. They are nice!
And they knew their stuff, which was nice. Just a heads up, you may need to trim/grind the meet sleeves in the bushings to fit properly in the shackle. I installed some warrior shackles that have zero give. The stamped factory shackles should have no problem fitting the spring bushings

I was able to get the Flaming River U-Join installed but the Pacesetter Headers made it impossible too do without loosing up the steering box and moving it.

Was very nice after 2 hours of work for a 10 minute job...Doh!!!!!

Not Blazer related, but I finally got around to dropping the oil pan and resealing it on my daily driver Cobalt!



Maybe now the blazer will be the only leaky car in the driveway, and once I do the bravada shaft mod and fix the leaky axle seal, maybe I'll actually have a fleet of non leaking vehicles!

Replaced fuel pump and filter. No more leaking seal. Not sure if the idle issue gone but this pump so so quite can hardly hear it cycle when turn key.


Bought used, it came this way and for once I am not complaining!

Took a fraction of the time expected once this was discovered. Going to patch it over with some sealant and plexiglass I have laying around.

Seeing your fixing leaks- talk me into fixing mine. Front seal leaks but not enough for me to go at it yet. I cant seem to work up the motivation to rip into it that hard yet.
