You shoulda went with the 2 door 'ho! They were made in 2 door form from 88-92 (as the K1500 blazer) and 93-99? as the Yukon/Tahoe.
My first vehicle was a 2 door Yukon; love of my life!

Thanks man, and nope so far so good Only trouble i've had was with the trac bar like you can see a few pictures up, the first time i drove on the interstate after i installed the lift the bolt holding it in snapped. And then i replaced it, then once again it came loose, but i believe that time it slowly worked its way out from the vibration. Then once again i replaced it and added a locking washer to it, and have been tightening it periodically until i can buy something to fix it, perhaps a rusty's bar designed for 3 inch kits.

Not to mention some of the 2 door 4x4s had diesels (6.5 turbo diesel i believe)

Alright, it's been forever since i've posted anything here, and a lot has gone down, and i've taken a few pictures, but i'm lazy about uploading them to here so... anyway i'm trying to catch up (so some pictures will be out of order)


I'll start here, here's a few pictures of the jeep just chilling.



Alright, here's one of me trying to make something to flex on, this is about as big as i could make it, lame i know haha.


This is in the back of a neighborhood, and happens to be where i've gotten stuck for the first time ever! I bottomed out on the dry land in between the two ruts, and was stuck for a good while until my buddy called up his friend with a huge bronco to come pull me out (which he did, like it was nothing.)

(Sorry for the quality, they were off my phone, but better than nothing.)

Next up is when i got home after being stuck, and also happens to be right around the time that my engine started overheating.

(Clean but still running hot.)

I ended up getting a new radiator and replacing the thermostat and housing, and finding out that one of my engine fans was not working, which i have not replaced yet. But... for now its running good again!

Here's my latest trip out, its a spot that yet again happens to be in the back of a neighborhood, and it was my first time ever doing any "crawling, hill-climbing, flexing" whatsoever, so don't hate on my first attempt haha.
Oh and my friend wanted to be in most of the pictures for some reason ha, he's in the blue shirt, i'm in the white. The pictures are in no order.

Also, I found this picture, it's a real old one before the jeep was even lifted, and its what the grill used to look like before I painted it, i think my painting was a big improvement, i'm not into all the chrome.

Alright, so i decided against the OD Green paintjob, I think i'm just gonna touch up my white some, and keep it classy. And as a result I want to do some further paint work, and i want to know if you think i should paint my disk brakes and brake claws, a sky blue-ish color as well as my differentials. What do you think?
