The evolution of the Mustang rear end... the newer ones have a fully independant rear end... right? Or did I just read a review on a modified one?

Only the 03-04 Cobras where IRS, every one else, even the new ones, have a solid axle.

That fullsize blazer totally needs rims and tires.... even if that was ALL it got, it would look so much meaner! LMAO.... but that is a sharp buy for 1500 bucks. How does it run?

I think having black for the beed locks on the rims looks awesome.. and much better then the orange did IMO.... glad the wheel is FINALLY straight! HAHAHAHA

it runs great... i just replaced the headgaskets and every seal above them maybe 2 months ago.. the guy i have the shop with needed a suburban cause he has 5 kids and i knew my father in laws sonoma was going so it only seemed natural that we worked out a deal.. i found him the suburban he wanted for 1500 bucks so thats what he sold me his truck for.. win-win.. lol. it needs paint of the hood and bigger tires definitly.. im gonna get the same tires i got on my jimmy for it.. then be set..

eh... I am thinking a less agressive tire would look better... just a mean set of rims... Perhaps a set of Nitto Terra Grapplers for the Full sizer! HAHAHAHA..... anyways, mud-terrains will wear out so fast being sucj soft rubber, and I doubt that thing will see the kind of action your blazer does... just something to consider....
