Default 98 lt 4dr 4x4.

ok so i begins. this is my 98 blazer and as of now the only thing i have done to it is nightshades on the stock tails.




the plan is i am putting my 30's on it Thursday. and then a tbar and shackle lift.

i will try and get some pics as soon as its done.

then after that i want to do the exhaust im thinking a super 44 in place of the stock muffler just for a little more tone on a budget.

and little things like vent visors ebay push bar and a cargo basket.

what do you all think?

for now im just gonna have my herucules mounted they only have 5k miles on them so i might as well get some use out of them. i wish they were 31's but they still are nice tires. they hook up pretty good offroad. they even clean pretty good for a at tire. and they do so good on hard packed and any kind of rocky terra.

ok so the 30's might not be going on the blazer. last night someone offered to buy the xj as it is. i gave him to the weekend to come up with the money and if he is not here im not selling it. but if he dose buy it a decent chunk of that will go into building the blazer.
