Default '05 4x4 "Blaze"

Hey all, figured I'd finally make a build page for my new to me '05 LS.

Picked it up last May with 155,000KM's on it. Looked solid, not really any rust anywhere.

Since then, I've done a complete tune up with all Delco parts. (Plugs, wires, cap, rotor) K&N Drop in, new battery, water pump, power steering pump, ball joints and brakes. My 4x4 stopped working too briefly, but a battery disconnect for 1hr cleared the TCCM codes and allowed it to work again.

I bought a 2" PA Body Raise in the winter to install this spring, will get at it soon. I also have an 8500lb winch I want to install on this build since I wasnt able to on my old red '00 LT.

I took the plunge today and ordered a set of 31's. Trying out Hercules Trail Digger M/T. I couldn't stand to mount on OEM or stock wheels, so I ordered Soft 8's and some black center caps too. This should give me the ambition to get that body raise installed!!

Only mod I've done since buying is paint recondition (we do detailing at my workplace) and I sprayed my rockers, bumpers and grille.

I plan on window tint, suspension lift, I'd like to install my Alpine deck from my Lincoln in this truck. Something to freshen up the headlight/signal lights too.

Hey guys, long time update;

I installed a body raise, and Soft 8's, with some Trail Digger M/T (AKA Grave Diggers ). Ended up swamping her out lol. Had to replace a lotta parts...I will get pics from my old phone..water was coming in my speakers lol I was deep. Anyways, new alternator, starter, plugs, two front wheel bearings, fuel line leak and I still have to replace the rear end, she developed a leak and ran dry, now she's hummin'.

I found my old blacked out halo lights from my red blazer...gonna install them. I ordered some blackout signal lenses just now and1.25" hubcentric wheel spacers. I'd like to get the ORD winch mount for my 8500lbs superwinch. I'd like to still do a 2.5" super lift as well.
