we used to take our 91 out all the time...She never had any problems. We used to put dielectric grease on all the electrical connections, spark plugs...all that. Do NOT wrap your breather lines. They are there for a reason. If I am correct there is one on the rear diff, up under the rear somewhere. Ours was not too far from the rear diff. There's one on the trans. And there is one on the front diff. That one is right by your headlight somewhere. Extend them. That is the best thing you can do. Route them up high...a lot of people route them to the firewall or into a snorkel. We never re-routed ours because where we went it wasn't a big deal. It had a 4 inch lift on it so everything was raised already. Other than that a snorkel is a good investment. I do have a build on this site if you want to go by that from our blazer :-) Otherwise the blazer kicks butt for least ours did :-)
