Default Carrico's Build (98 blazer 4dr)

Little late creating this but I am definitely not finished with it.

Got a blue 4dr 4x4 98 blaze in Nebraska's dirty winter from my sister's friend who sold it to me for $550, just needed fuel injectors(which were free!) The hood was damaged, bumper and bumper end were also damaged. Replaced that and the grill as well. Oh, and it needed a drivers side mirror and pass. side mirror(glass)

Pics will be up really soon, my computer is giving me a hard time.

after a while I installed sony xplods in all 4drs and dash, with a dual stereo. A month after I installed a flowmaster and two 10'' focals powered by an xmzr700x4 sony amp...sadly it was defective so i replaced with an alpine mrp500. Sounds decently nice.


Than while looking for a rollpan (which i never found so i gave up) I found a 48$ intake..junk, but it worked for a while.

Now i have a K&N fipk. worth the buy.

After my flowmaster (40 series) was installed, Ultimate truck off road (nebraska) installed my shackles in april, than my 31s with soft black cragers were put on.

Than the end of that day came and I took off all the badges and emblems, I wish i had a picture but i don't, so i substitute it with the truck being covered in mud w/o the badges.

Also you can see that I put on a new bumper that doesn't have the rubber strip.

Thanks guys, and thats not exactly what it looks like now. I just ordered a roof rack for it a few days ago and will get it later tonight.

But last week I put the body lift on, 2" PA, really wasn't that fun and I still have a few things left to finish like the rear bumper, front bumper brackets but its coming along really nicely. And when I'm done with my welding class I'll weld some support bars/rods for the bull bar b/c the brackets for it don't work that well.

one of the pics is w/o any lift i completely forgot to post it.

So here's what I got done since saturday guys: Installed my lowprofile roof rack by rage powersports, its like a stingray looking one, rele nice. Than today I painted the grill black as well as the bowtie the same color as the truck. And cleaned it up a lil bit inside.
