Default Gmax2190's Blazer Build - 56K No No

Hey there, I guess since I've been doing a bunch of work on my Blazer, I would post up a build thread.

First off I bought the truck for $400 off of my buddy needing a little bit of work. The truck was his work truck for the last 4 years so it was pretty rough on the inside and outside, so I started by washing the truck and vacuuming the interior out.

When I got it.





After I washed it.





The stereo that came with it and a surprise in the center console.





I'm currently in the middle of the speaker / sub install, I've spent the last day tracking down the previous owners sub wires that he hid after he removed the subs. As a result my interior is pretty much in pieces and I've ordered all new plastic clips for the panels.




I had to put some cheap Sony's in the back doors because my JL's wouldn't fit.




Temporary storage while my grandparents are here.





I found the wires finally. . .



My grandfather stopping by on his way to Mexico for the winter and our used car sales lot. LOL






The final pic for this post. . .




Future plans are:

-2" Shackles
-2" Body Lift
-31"s
-Roof Rack
-6 Off road lights
-Remove Side Skirt steps and replace with tube steps.

i think you should do a 3 in body lift, then leave them on, woul cover up a small bit of the frame nicely, but id say take em off, do all your work, and then just place them up there and see how it looks.

I know which one you were talking about LOL. It's a very custom modification that takes lots of effort to perfect. . .
