Wow. Has it really been that long already? 10th year. Congratulations everyone on the milestone.
Yeah itís pretty wild to think that the first year there were less than 15 rigs.  :beer:
I am not sure we had 15 rigs
I actually think there were 8 or 9

I re-tubed the front drive shaft as I bent it a couple times and then straightened but the last time was too bad to fix. I'm replacing the yoke at the front axle to get rid of one of the conversion u-joints. I went through and tightened all the beadlock bolts that were a little loose. and fixing a few other little issues I see to get it ready as the season is here! :headbang:

So this project has kicked my butt a little as I have now broke two transmissions at the bell housing. :punchballs: I broke one on the jack stands while breaking in the gears then I replaced the case and rebuilt the transmission and got 3 test hits with low fuel supply and 1 full test hit and broke another case. I was having low fuel supply so we drilled the fuel tank and put -8AN fitting in the tank sump and ran new 1/2 fuel lines from the tank to the front. I'm running one Holley Blue pump for the main fuel supply and 1 Holley Blue pump for the nitrous system.  The cage due to moisture was starting to rust so we primered it. We got almost all of the wiring tied up except the nitrous system, the line lock is set up with the button at the shifter. So I think I'm going to try to put a midplate on the engine to better support the rear of the engine so that all the stress is not on the transmission. After that we'll see what it does.

Well after a two week pause in building this I'm back at it trying to hurry up and get it done. More progress pictures of the new tires, wheels, rear leaf springs, CalTrac traction system, new 9 inch Ford based Grand National floater rear end, front bumper and air dam...yeah I've been busy. I need to finish the front loop and tie it into the cage, mount the shifter, and build the drive shaft to do a test run before painting it.

We have been pretty busy building this and have been able to make some great progress. The cage is just about completed, the fuel system along with cooling system is complete. We are just going down the to do list and checking things off as we go. The last big ticket item I need is the rear differential as we are going with a full float 9 inch. Here are a couple pictures of the progress.

We got the engine and transmission installed and got it fired up last night. It sounds wicked! I picked up the tubing Friday and we will start on the cage this weekend.

So I picked up this 1989 S10 Blazer cheap and my son and I are going to build a little drag toy out of it. I have a 389 Stroker with aluminum heads and a ton of other goodies, T400 transmission with a 3,000-3,500 stall converter and a 250 shot cheater nitrous kit. I've been gathering parts and I'm picking up the tubing to build a cage this week and should have it ready to do some test hits in about a month. Here are a few pictures.

I got the new fuel cell installed. It's super tight but at least I didn't have to redo any tube work.

How many folks on here ride?  I've got an Ultra.  We should get a group together and ride one weekend.
The only people who ride that I know of is you, Clint, Pat and me.

Iíve been thinking about selling mine. I donít have anyone to ride with anymore. I ride it to work pretty often but thatís not really riding to me.

A few of us hit Mammoth last weekend. All I have to say is if you have never been to Mammoth go, but be ready to push your rig way beyond what your comfortable pushing it! Here are a few pictures

I have been thinking about this area for a month now. Who's ready to go give it a shot with me?

I found a large bolder that knocked a hole in my oil pan while in Mammoth. I have never liked how far the pan stuck down, but now I had to change it. I bought a Speedway LS swap shallow pan and got it installed and it is almost three inches shallower than the stock van pan I had. Now I need to quit being lazy and build the belly pan I have the material to do anyway. I also swapped out the 2"x16" rear shocks for 2.5"x16" and it sits much better and handles the weight of my kids better also.
