Default 1998 Chevy Blazer LS 4.3L V6 Vortec

SO in the last week I have managed to spend a ton of money on my blazer fixing it up, Replaced the Sending unit and fuel pump, new filler hose, new vent hose, new lock ring on the tank, fuel filter, idler puller, tensioner pulley, serpentine belt, all four new front door pins, just recently bought heated mirrors off a 2001 blazer one of mine was broke and they did not match quite the same so changed both out also, Also have Brand new front wheel hub assemblys coming with speed sensors...blazer is running great 127K and Running strong Very Minimal rust and very suprised at the condition being a VERMONT vehicle!

It is a slowly working progress my weekend project this weekend I just got front hub assembly(s) with ABS sensor for $40.15 Each ($80.30) total in the last month i just put the new rims and tires on it, the rims that were on it i hated, New sending unit, tank ring, all new gas lines, filler tube and vent tube (rubber) both replaced on the tank, all new filler neck replaced, fuel filter, Idler pulley, tensioner pulley, serpintine belt. also put mirrors off an 01 on there due to one being broke and because they were not identical i just replaced them both...bought the pair for $20 and they are heated mirrors. Id eventually like to do the Headlight quad beam mod, do not know what i need to do it yet..also would like to do the throttle body mod. and have not made a final decision as to whether or not i would like to keep the existing air box and drop in a K&N or cold air intake, thoughts?? Also next mod is to shut off the daytime running lights, I really hate the fact i cannot shut them off....
