You and me both!! Saw another guy with one similar that he designed out of cardboard and made it.* Man I wish I was a welder!!

And I look forward to doing this build, pretty much have it all tore down. Still waiting on the kit to get here. I need to order some gears for the diffs. I think im going to go 4.10's with a 32/11.50/15.. not sure yet. I have 3.42 gears now with 28.9 diameter tires.

I want to spray the frame and all the wheel wells black. Not sure what would be best, flat black rustoleum.. or like an undercoating in a can..

FYI - That bumper was sold by a company called "Animal4x4" that is no longer in business.

I've looked everywhere for the plans, but whoever has them isn't letting them out into the world. The last I heard, "Mr. Z" (the forum founder of zr2usa.com) has the plans, but I haven't seen anywhere that you can purchase it, whether it's bolt-on or a weld-able kit.

Scored some cool parts today from a local salvage yard. I got a ZR2 rear end with 50K on it. It's an 8.5" ring gear (mines 7.5) and has the factory limited slip/locker, and has a 4" wider track than my stock diff matches the front better. Popped the cover looked to have never been off, and looks perfectly clean and hardly any wear.

Also got a ZR2 cast iron front diff (mines alum) with...wait for it....... 0 miles! This salvage yard has a contract with Gm and get a lot of test vehicles and all kind of stuff that has to be ddestroyed or parted out. They'v parted out pperfect zo6's and all kinds of Gm vehicles. Anyways this was exactly what I was looking for and never would have believed I would end up with a new one.. pretty amazing as it has to be like 12 year old! I'll take some better pics later. Both diffs are 3.73 (mines 3.42)

That's a hell of a drop bracket for the front IFS.

I can't wait to see how goofy it's going to look once you pop the old wheels/tires back on it before you upgrade! lol

To this day one of the funniest vehicles I've ever seen is the monster truck Maximum Destruction getting rolled off the trailer with the tiny-ass "transporting" wheels. They were no bigger than the pumpkin on the back.

You're not kidding! This kit is BEEFY.. it weighs 250lbs and probably 20lbs was for the rear. Not to mention the cast iron diff feels twice as heavy as the aluminum one. I'm adding a lot of weight to the front end lol. Not to mention I'll be doing a vortec 350 swap soon. Ill probably max out my torsion bars just to make it level.

Plus these super lift shocks feel pretty weak, maybe they want it that way idk..

I found a guy that will make me a front bumper. He's already made one for his and made templates to make more if he wanted.. I'll get the pics from my email and post em. Tell me what you think of it

Yeah I've been lookin for some old 15" tires to come through the shop. Like 1856015 or something and mount them on the stock wheels lol should be pretty funny
