One major upgrade was the new Monster Transmission 700R4 rated at 750hp/750tq which obviously adds a fourth gear, is still strong enough to handle anything thrown at it and drastically improved the MPG. It also received a brand new monster NP208 transfer case to go with it, rated for 750hp/750tq. It has an SSBC 4 wheel disc brake conversion, cross drilled/slotted 12 inch front rotors and 4 piston calipers. Needless to say, this thing stops as well as any modern vehicle, much better than any other K5 Blazer for sure. The 22 gallon steel fuel tank was removed and upgraded to a 31 gallon Raybuck polyethylene fuel tank with a brand new sending unit, lines and all hardware. This obviously added a greater range to the truck BUT, makes it impossible for any algae or biologicals to grow or exist in the fuel, which can be a problem for diesel vehicles. It also make the use of BioDiesel an everyday possibility as the biological nature of biodiesel will never have a harmful effect on this fuel system. It has brand new rims and rubber on all four corners, brand new as in less than 100 miles on everything. It also has energy suspension polyurethane bushings on all suspension components on all four corners, rides amazing. There were interior upgrades as well. Competition 13 inch leather and steel steering wheel. 12 way, leather, heated, power seats from a Cadillac Escalade and yes, heat and power all work, will be especially nice this winter. I also added a 1000 watt block heater, which these never came with but, makes the life of this powertrain much easier and gives longevity, plus having instant heat in the winter is nice. Almost all of the restoration parts came from LMC truck, to include black matching cup holders, sounds trivial but, cup holders go along way in a truck like this. No need to worry about going thirsty or spilling coffee on these brand new seats, LMC cup holders installed as well.
