Kevin Morr, of Neosho, Missouri, has a nice example of a '70 Chevy Blazer. Lifting the rig is a 4-inch Skyjacker kit and a 3-inch body lift. Some fender trimming allowed enough room for 40-inch Gumbo Mudders on 15x12 American Racing wheels. The 350 V-8 was equipped with Corvette heads, an Edelbrock intake, 650cfm Holley carb, and a big cam. All that horsepower then runs to a TH350 tranny which sends power to the stock axles.
Roaming around Hickory, North Carolina, is Joe Carter and his '96 Bronco. Making this steed burn and breathe a little better is a Jacobs ignition and a K&N air filter affixed to the otherwise stock 351 V-8. A 4-inch Rancho lift kit clears the way for 33-inch BFG mudders on 15x8 factory wheels. To help spin the tires, 4.10 gears were swapped in, and an ARB Air Locker was added in the rear. If the Bronco should ever get stuck, a Warn 9000i rests up front.
Robert McDonald of Springfield, New Jersey, has spent plenty of time making his '89 Suburban a nicer ride. A 3-inch body lift clears the way for 33-inch Wild Countrys on 15x12 American Racing wheels. Next, all four doors were replaced because the originals were rusted. Robert then turned his attention to the interior and replaced the carpeting, door panels, seats, and headliners with plusher pieces. Finally, a new stereo system was installed to provide tunes on long trips.
Logan Andersen of Simi Valley, California, wasted no time in voiding the warranty of his '00 Chevy Z71. First to go on was a 10-inch suspension lift along with a 4-inch body lift. Big tires come in the form of 40-inch Ground Hawgs on 16.5x14 Weld rims. A Flowmaster exhaust and K&N air filter help add some oomph to the engine. Providing traction is a Detroit Locker in the rear while 4.10 gears at both ends spin the tires.
