aalba92691's 1988 Pickup Build-Up Thread

Well I finally scraped up enough cash to purchase a Blazeland Long Travel kit for my '88 4x4. After speaking with Blazeland Nate over the phone, I was convinced that his kit was the most bang for my buck. The only other kit I was considering was the Total Chaos kit, however in these economic times there is no way I could afford it. I ordered the Blazeland kit and should have it sometime next week........

Holy bumpsteer batman! Reminds me of my Ivan Dan 2WD Fagtech lift on my 87, tons of travel but poor steering geometry.

or just take it off..run the LT kit by itself then throw on my 2" body lift (for the future 3.4 swap )

that'd be plenty to run some 35's......maybe lol..might have to run a 3in body lift..do a drivetrain lift..and trim the fenders..lol

theoretically you could keep the same ride height as a 4" bracket drop by making the A-Arms parallel with the diff crossmember.. i think >.>

Blazeland Invoice

Here is the invoice Blazeland Nate sent me for the longtravel kit. He was really helpful and even hooked me up and sold me all the other components necessary to install the kit.... (brakelines, SAW torsion bars, new torque arms, shocks, and the T100 axles). He hooked me up for being his 1st yotatech buyer....score!

Well we'll b e looking for pic's, and Hmm, seeing that price is really got me back on track for a SAS, I already have the axle, and I can get away with the swap for less than that because I do my own welding...


Hmmm, it would make my 1uz swap easier too with the Solid underneath

It's here!

the UPS truck just dropped of the goods. here are some pics of them minus all the packaging material... So far I'm impressed with the quality of the arms. The bracket that extends the upper arm also looks really beefy in person. All the welds look good as well.
