    Default 88 blazer trike

    I am going to look at a 88 blazer tomorrow as a donor.
    Getting it for a good price for what it is
    Ive seen hot rods and trikes made from them
    One of the Trikes I have seen that I like the best is made from a S10 (same engine, trany, rear and frame)

    Is it 2 or 4 wheel drive?
    Transmission could be changed to 2 wheel drive but likely adds cost, labor, & some amount of custom fabrication to the equation.
    It sounds like you're prepared for that and I'm not trying to discourage you on this, but here's my "2 cents" for what its worth & if not too late: finding a 2x4 S10 donor rig might be a better start?

    I just got home with it.
    Yep it is 4wd. I have researched how to convert the Trany to 2wd and looked up the parts.
    That along with a rebuild kit will run me about $400 (will go with a beast sun gear)
    Or I just buy a replacement trany

    I was looking for a 2wd s10 but could not find one in my price range.

    It was crazy driving it home. The steering is so loose. I passed a cop and was afraid he would think I was drunk.

    My goal was to get a donor vehicle by the end of the year. I finally got one the last day.
    Now my next goal is to have it striped down by summer

    The 2wd rear diff is narrower than the 4wd diff.

    A 4.3 would make a stong trike.

    Did not know that!!!!

    I was planning to narrow the rear end anyway. I have been researching it.
    I dont think I will do that myself but I wount know until I get to that point

    I was just out looking at it with my son. All kinds of ideas running through our heads
    BUT it will take us some time.
