Default 2005 Blazer 2Dr build

Hello peeps Bought a 2005 Blazer a few months go in -30 weather and today was the first real nice weekend to start making her look nice


So far I have bought : 2 new front tires OEM size, Thermostat and pipe, Spark plugs, PCV filter, Cap / Rotor / Wires, Aftermarket Cold intake , Timing belt, Some odds and ends from the scrap yard for free


Sony explod 4 channel 1000watt Amp, Clarion 400watt 6x9 3-way speakers, Pioneer 12" 1300 watt subwoofer, Clarion 1" door post tweeters, Clarion CD/USB stereo


My idea for a sound system is a nice clear sound I put bass blockers on the tweeter but even cranked up not much sound was coming out I think the bass blockers were too strong ..I removed them and its really good now As for the Amp I bought a pot to turn up and down the bass level aside from the stereo


The 12" is going in the rear passage side I/4 panel flush with the plastic trim by cutting out a area then build a box with the specs in that area

Yes it's 4x4 2Dr Pewter color 4.3L Vin eng X
Update : installed today a fuel pressure regulator and fuel filter all the fluids changed even in the trans and diffs lubed the fittings. New battery tray and battery.

Front and rear cams to record and a Power box for the cams to record as long as i want or until my battery reaches 11.8 volts then it shuts down the cam recorders so i will have juice to start the truck still but even then it takes about 1 1/2 - 2 days for that to happen


upcoming installs / upgrades : I work at a Autobody / A/C cobra reproduction shop and seen a Shelby cobra with a Copper/Rootbeer paint job....gotta have it on mine and we have 2" tubing and a pipe bender and heavy gauge welder ..so I'm making custom side steps and powder coated in flat black.
The girlfriend bought me a Viper Alarm with smart start and Gps so if someone steals it its tracked every 3 secs and has a autoshut off if you set it from your Iphone anywhere in the world ...which would suck if they drive it into lake ontairio lol Anyways still have to install in at a dealer of viper to use the phone app but atleast i don't have to bother with key fobs anymore
after all this "stuff" i may get a slight lift kit maybe 2" or Zr2 sized with a nice rim and tire package for a little mild off roading

I think the rootbeer color would look great on a blazer. What color is it now?

You said you got two new tires, if they are a different size to the other two on the vehicle, you could break something if you put it in 4wd.

My 2005 Chevy Blazer with pewter paint in the spring 2015 No rust a few small dings on the door and rear 1/4 Mostly stock and low Kms
Afterwards : Custom Rootbeer with Copper pearl paint After the body was sanded down with 600 wetsand Making the old paint lay flat for the new paint. 2 Coats adhesion glue 3 coats flat black 3 coats Rootbeer 3 coats glamor clear coat, dried for 1 month then wetsand with 1000grit 1500grit 2000grit Med, rubbing compound, swirl remover, polished. Refinshed rims and 4 new Bigger Tires 265-75-15 Mud and snow Car cam recorder that records 24hrs even when the truck is turned off Front and back Car start/alarm with Iphone smartstart lets me start the truck anywhere in the world also Gps lets me know where it is and a fence to shut down the truck if i go pass a set area say 5kms outside of my town or anywhere. Future Upgrades : Banana Pi onboard computer (5inchs wide ) able to do self-diagnostics with OBD II and read out real time Engine tuning on the fly IE useable wifi Gps voice command (e-speaking ) Good for displaying what your looking for or app needed with your voice No keyboard/mouse needed.
Also custom made interior : Not sure on Type of seats yet However i have stiched my own seats 15 years back for my Camaro I bought the materals at a fabric store which was quite cheap and hog rings to clamp it in place I recommend to anyone doing this Use the thick fabric and make sure you have a sewing machine that will be able to push though the fabic because you need to fold the fabic in the areas you are sewing it otherwise you will be doing all the work by hand ..like i did I maybe go with a leather and heated add in seat with a baseball stich
