I'm down to mounting the ram, fixing one leak, installing a rollover valve for the fuel cell and loading up the camper.

Going to be a busy weekend. :deal: :beer:

I need to make mounts for the front shocks, change the oil, fix the tranny leak, put the doors on.

Good luck Matt, your crunch time is shorter than mine and I only have a few things to do, but I have to wait until the end of the month to do it so I have the funds to do it. Also, Sorry I never called you the other weekend, I was hung over about 3 days and then just never got around to it.....

Hey Matt, can you post some pics of your ram mounting, and where you tapped your box?
When I get it mounted on. No problem. The box tapping is real easy. Especially the second time around. :roll:

Now I am really feeling the pressure. I still haven't got the tranny leak fixed.(leaking so bad I can't drive it) other than that here is the list
Replace fuel pump
fix fuel gauge sender
fix dash lights
mount doors
plug the big ass hole I cut in the floor for the shifters
pack all of my tools and spares
Should be done by next Blazer Bash :roll:

looks good, how does the tow rig pull the blazer with the camper? I'm going to have to buy a fullsize pickup soon, and was thinking about a similar set up.

I'm staying at the SlickRock campround with the rest of our group. There's another one south of town that I prefer but I went with the crowd this time.

It pulles it OK I guess. It slowed down to around 40 mph over FishCreek pass last camping trip. That was completely loaded up with camper, Blazer and stuff for a week of camping and four people. What kills me is bad gearing. It has 3.73 gears and I really need a 4.11 gear. What helps is the NV4500 and the 454. I also cant recommend the dually rear enough in this situation. With the camper on the back and the Blazer, it really holds its place on the road. Its a real far cry from my Dodge.

My next truck will be a four door diesel of some flavor.

Yeah I thought the dually part would be the best, just hate the thought of the economy of the 454 and heavy truck, since it would be my daily driver also :banghead:

I am about there! I need to load up the tools and spare parts.

Load up the camper with groceries and stuff like that.

Last night I finished Modding the pump and now the Hydro assist works real nice. I even wiped out the dash. :razz:

I also noticed that my front pinion was a little loose. Might have to look at that. :?

I also need to call and get insurance on it and find the stupid registration. :roll:
