Default 89 blazer project

well, picked up an 89 4x4. the blaze has 122k ,transmission is out has a fair amount of rust , 3 different wheels and mismatched tires that are trashed anyway... but thats ok because i over payed a little lol

i plan on fixing the rust and bedlining the rockers, getting her a brush guard and a a rear tire carrier and probably a bit of a lift at some point. i have pretty limited mechanical knowledge so this should be a learning experience lol!

well got a slightly chewed up matching wheels on it today and cobbled together 4 235/75's aint the best but least they are the same size and should be alright till i decide what size i want to go with.



also put on some of those fancy big city windshield wipers that actually get water off the windshield & dont etch the glass.

gotta go on a 2 week trip for work and when i get back trani rebuild!

Not a bad looking truck by any means. I keep kicking myself for not buying a '91 4x4 2 door to go with my '99 4 door 4x4

A matching set of 4x4 wheels sure makes a big difference, haha.
