Default My '95 S10 Blazer LT project

I have 1995 Chevrolet S10 Blazer LT 4-doors 4x4. I am planning on working on this Blazer. I have a part-time job so the money fund will be slow. This will be my daily driving vehicle but will take it off-road a little but not alot. I will post the pictures later when I get home from work.

paint those tow hooks and give 'er a good wash and wax. you can also think about getting either a body lift or torsion crank and shackles i just did the torsion crank and i think it looks great much better. also maybe brush guard/bull bar, whichever you like

Ok thanks 98chevyblazer, I am going to paint them tow hook hope this weekend if the weather is alright and warm. Could I go with black or grabber green? How hard and expensive to do the torsion crank and shackles or body lift. I only work part-time.

Torsion crank and shackles didnt affect my gas mileage at all, but i went from a 235 size wrangler rt/s to a 30" bfg all terrain and it brought my gas mileage down from like 22-24 highway to around 19-21, but i think it sits nicer now. You can't really notice that it does unless youre staring at the wheel wells, but i like the look. all i did was buy the shackles off ebay for around 55 bucks and the torsion crank is free, but my bolts were rusted stuck in the shackle so i had to have a shop do it and they installed new bushings and bolts and an alignment for 193 bucks, so not bad overall i guess. they did the torsion crank too looking better btw!
