    lay frame.

    I just got my rims/tires!!!! But the douches still have my 2 rear caps. Anyway, This guy was telling that I can bag my blazer, with 20s without cutting up my blazer. Is that true

    I'm not an expert but I don't see how that's possible. Maybe if you just use the wheels with no tires. :D

    you can bag it on whatever rim you want, however you wont be anywhere near laying frame without cutting the shit out of it on anything over about a 25 or so inch tall tire and expect to lay frame. The magic number for stock inner structure front and rear is right at or around 25 inches. blazer get a little more room b/c they sit higher on the frames. For the rear if you use a box tubing notch and dont over notch you can get away with a stock or fairly stock floor for the center but once again tire contacting the wheel wells will end up determining how low you go. But since most people on 20s run a 26.5 inch or taller tire, its a no go if you want to lay out.

    Yeah that's what I thought. I would have to cut the crap out of the blazer. This guy was positive that there is a bolt-in kit out there. Well I just want a smoother ride. so I was thinking of putting in some bags/air shocks. what do you'll think?

    The rear is much more involved. Most of the floorboard was cut out to retain the stock rear seat. It was reworked using some original metal & custom driveshaft hump & handmade fillers. Over the notch the floor is raised. The only work in the wheelhouses was to flatten the pinch welds.

    The rear suspension is a one-off wishbone 3-link using Slam RE6s on the lower bars. There are custom x-members; one tying the upper bag mounts & another for the gas tank + shocks. All this work was done by Dave Bost before I bought it. There is a build thread somewhere on S10forum but I haven't found it yet.

    A stock back seat is a ton of work. I know a guy from IL who used one from a Jeep Wrangler...
