Default 2000 Chevy Blazer Build

Picked up this Blazer a couple of weeks ago. Had one before and missed it so I decided to find another one. Just sorting things out now and getting ready for winter. Not sure what direction I'm going yet but probably just a nice clean cruiser.

Upcoming items: fix some surface rust spots, replace rear shocks, annual safety inspection, change plugs/wires/cap and rotor, add 1.25 rear wheel spacers, general grabber AT2 235/75/15, husky floor liners and some vent shades. That'll probably do it for this year.

That looks like a twin to mine..I hope it is in as good shape as mine was...I added a pin stripe and it dressed it up a little..........just needed a little color....

I'm shopping for mufflers...you mentioned dynomax, how is that for sound???......I'm wanting just enough to hear the beat. ;-)

You're not asking for recommendations, but I have to say that i just put the new injection system in my blazer and i wish i would have done that the first week that i had it.........maybe yours has been done....??.

good luck with it....

It was the condition that sold me on it. Low miles and very clean. It was owned by a senior couple that undercoated it every year and fixed whatever it needed and it shows. I think the rear bumper will need replaced next year, starting to rust bad and I seen the pictures of one on here that is doing the same thing so I started to look now for a replacement.

Muffler is barely noticeable, I just wanted a quick replacement and only paid $50 for it.

I always like recommendations and I have the parts picked out through amazon for the injection replacement. It runs well now so it may have already been done and this isn't my daily driver so I can park it if I have to.

Amazon lists the ac delco,... that may not be what you get.......see if you can search for spider assembly in recent posts.......they sent me two of the exact spider [NOT AC].....there are a few other reviews on that spider that say the same...

you might look elsewhere......

you will know in due time if it has not been changed ;-)

ordered some wheel spacers tonight (1.5") and then going for safety inspection Tuesday. I went over it quick and shouldn't need much, brakes or a ball joint maybe but we'll see.

Wheel spacers are illegal in some states, just keep that in mind when you go for safety. Nice blazer though. Welcome to the 2000 blazer club.

Good point on the wheel spacers however I am good here in NB. Blazer passed safety without a hitch, mechanic was surprised how good of a shape it was in for the year/area. Had a P0147 show up this morning. I cleared it for now and will replace if it pops up again.
