Default Help me name it!

It's a 1989 S-10 BLAZER, 4.3 liter, Auto, 4X4, 2 door. It's a dull silver/gray color. It is NOT shiny. It has no cool name.
Help me come up with some cool name for it.

I'm going to try to keep this build thread going as I get things done.
Right now, it needs: (1) The seat removed and re-bolted to the floor, so I can even DRIVE IT. I am 6' 8" tall and FAT. I can not even get INTO the truck until the seat gets moved. (2) Drivers side power window doesn't work. I have unbolted the window from the track and tied it UP with a piece of rope. Tomorrow, I will be removing the motor. (3) someone busted the outside door handle. THAT needs to be replaced. (4) The left side brake light is broken. (5) The right side brake light doesn't light up. (6) The serpentine belt needs to be replaced.

I have ordered ALL these parts from Rock Auto. Now I wait.....

About that name....?

Do ALL these trucks have the inside fender mount oil filter?
Does it seem to be a GOOD idea?
Or is it just 4 more high pressure hoses to break?
Mine seem awfully slick and shiny with oil.....

How about "bigassdude" lol! Good god!!! I love standing next to people that are big like you. I'm 6'4" 235lbs so I'm a pretty big guy and its not often I get to feel small or short standing next to people. Whenever I get the chance though I like to try and get my wife to take a picture!!! As for an actual name I don't really have anything for you sorry I'm bad at naming things.

While waiting on my parts order... I've been digging the power window motor out of the door. Also removing the outside pull handle, as it too is broken.
The pins inside the rivets came right out with a punch. Next is to drill out the remaining rivet bit. We'll see, I suppose....



The interior is dirty, but not all ripped up or anything...



Stay Tuned for more!

Keep the NAMES coming!

I'm trying to think up a PRIZE, for the winning NAME!!
