    this may be a stupid question but did you try to power brake it? what kinda engine do you have? or if all else fails put a v8 in it.

    if the power brake thing is to hold the brake down and step on the gas. yes i have done it numerous amounts of time. and my boy has a truck like mine with the same engin( 10,000 miles more than min) just bigger tires sitting at stuck hight. and he can do some mad burn outs.

    Do you have a 2.8? You have a 4x4, so it is probally posi. I have one tire fire, and I can light them up like nothing. Try getting the rear tires wet, and if they don't start spinning, your rear brakes are probally set too strong. Your gears in the rearend may be too low of a ratio for burn outs. How do you compete in racing against trucks with the same engine? If you are much slower off the line, then your gears are probally really low.

    Get nails and put them in the rear brake lines by the brake booster. Will stop pressure going to your rear brakes and leave it on the front. Common guys.. This has been done for years.

    Yes that would mean you would have no rear brakes, and I have no idea about the ABS....

    You need me to go into futher detail about the actuall process?
    Find the steel metal break lines that go to your rear breakes. and take the nail, (you may have to cut it down to make it fit in some cases due to curveature in the line) and put it in and the nail head should block most if not all of the fluid, so there would be no pressure on the break lines going to your rear brakes.

    I have done this to a couple buddies cars who went to smoke show compatitions, they were older cars and did not have ABS.... I have no experience dealing with ABS cant help ya there

    Dont drive around like that thou, but I am saying if you just wanna smoke your tires...

    Or you could go the expensive route and buy a line lock... But if you bought a line lock for a 2.8 blazer I would make fun of you, along with probably quite a few other people.
