I see lots or opportunity for cleaning and painting on that CUCV M1010. I would start by getting the battery boxes attached properly and the correct batteries. Them ratchet straps still have all the weight riding on the inner fenders. Tring to help you out and I see the inner fenders and battery boxes all tore up many times. Good Luck. Be Safe. Just a helpful hint.

Thanks CUCVRS for your tip about the 10 amp fuse at the bottom of the fuse panel! I have owned my blazer for about 10 years and the gen 1&2 lights nor the voltmeter ever worked. I read your tip the other day, and went out in the garage and looked and no fuse. Put one in and both lights and gauge work now! I was like a kid on Christmas! Thanks again.

Installed ORD steering brace, 2 inch Tuff Country springs, ORD greasable shackles/bushings. Still need brake lines and shocks. Truck had a two inch sag on the driver's side before installing the new suspension. Upon disassembly I found the driver's side center pin broke, and the bushings worn considerably. The new lift and relocating my toolbox to the passenger side leveled out the truck within a half inch, so I'm happy with it.

Spent time yesterday modifying the alternator adjusting bracket, since the "Plan B" alts are shaped a little different than factory. You could not rotate them all the way inwards, which made trying to get a belt that was short enough to not max out the adjustment but still be able to go over the pulleys almost impossible. I modified the bracket to extend the adjustment slots and then beefed them up by adding a second stiffing brace. Just need to finish a little clean up and paint it. Should work out well.
