This Started out as my First New Vehicle that I purchased Right out of College. I was Always in the Minitruck Scene, but had Never Built Anything too Extensive. I was Ready to Go a Little Deeper on Building a Minitruck with my New Blazer. I Slowly Gathered Parts and Got Got the Blazer Bagged on 20's. Once that Was Complete, I Rolled it for about a Year Just Bagged and on 20's but Took it to Some Shows and Realized I Wanted to Do More to it. So the Original Plan to go a Little Deeper Was to Lay it Out on 22's. In October of 2005 I Took the Blazer to Tony Neumann's House and We Tore it Down in his Backyard Garage. Once We got It Laid Out, Tony Pointed Out that We Were Doing alot of Work Already and It Really Wouldn't be Much More Work to Go Ahead and Body Drop It. All He Could Say was, "You Might as Well!" He Had a Good Point, If We Didn't do it then, We Probably Would have Wanted to Go Back and Do It Later. So We Kept Rolling With It. Everything Kept Snowballing into More and More and More...And We Ended Up Body Dropping it on 22's and 24's. Everything with the Build Went Pretty Smooth, No Major Complaints, Just Anxious to Get it Done. We Actually Were One of the First to Get a Set of Jason Thorbecke's Killer A-Arms! They Helped Out in a Major Way, As I was Having a Small Issue Getting Too Much Positive Camber with the A-Arms I Originally Had.
