Uhhhhhh, Maybe my version of a mini truck is different than yours .....So anybody who dives a stock blazer is considered a mini trucker.....highly doubt it because some people with blazers have huge tires and go off-roading. My version of a mini trucker is laying the frame and dragging it. Also, cutting the fenders in order to fit 22s, that have shaved door handles, trunks, body lines, etc.

S10 Blazers are not Full size trucks, hence the name mini truck. You dont have to have modifications to drive a small "mini" truck.

You contradict(sp?) yourself here. You say that stock Blazers arent mini trucks cause people put huge tires on them and go off roading. Well anything with "huge" tires is no longer stock. I know what your talking about and to fit the huge tires on there the truck is usually very modified.

So if I do this to a Mac Truck does that now make it a mini truck?

your both wrong. a blazer isnt a truck. its accually a station wagon. im sure his licance plate does nto say truck on it.

but mank ill have to agree with Joe. it techonly is a mini truck. its not a full size K-blazer. its a mini one.
here are 2 prime examples of what i mean
1. a.) Chevy S10 p/u - mini truck b.) Chevy Silverado p/u - full size truck

2. a.) Ford Ranger p/u - mini truck b.) Ford F150 p/u - full size


also not to mention the toyta tacoma's and the mazda b serises and the Nissan hard bodies are all mini trucks. they dont need to be hooked up to be called a mini truck

Daveo if you are going to put a large engin int here, this is what i would do. ditch that brake booster and put one in frm a GEO Metro if you can find one . they are so much smaller hence take up less room. cool i used hence in a post
