    Looking good. are you sure they both point in the same direction I know of some 4×4 that have rear shocks mounted in front of axle one side and rear of axle on the other side?

    you can just see this 1991 chassis has it

    The BBC run repeats of one of my favourite shows when I was a kid, The Rockford Files.

    I recorded some of them and thought I’d watch one today hoping to see a Blazer in a background shot. To my astonishment, Rocky, Jim Rockford’s dad used to drive one, or at least a GMC Jimmy.

    It’s a silver and red scheme and although I’m not a huge fan of the colour scheme, the idea of doing a ‘Rockford Files’ Blazer really appeals to me.

    Think it would have looked better with the colours reversed myself.. however I do like the colour toned bars.. a nice touch..

    Damn I’d give anything to be back in those days, watching the rockford files, chips, all those old greats.

    I’d be the same and go with a replica of that!! B)

    Three :) Rick Rosner, creator of CHiPs, is also behind 240 Robert, which is how I fell in love with Broncos. And yeah, Joanna Cassidy (piloting the Hughes 500) was my first crush :blush:

    Defo go with the Rockford Files ::thumpsup:: Loved the show and I got the theme tune on my ipod :blush: 😆
    So if you going to do a video of it in the future the music is out there it would be rude not to

    On further investigation and with some help from n00b over on the SBG forum it seems Rocky’s truck is probably a GMC Sierra Classic short bed pickup so it might be a bit of a leap from a Blazer but I’ll wait until the kit arrives and see what gives.
