Default my 97 4x4x4

ok i been here for a bit now and i have already done some things to my blazer so before i start anything more i should start a build thread..
Just for you to know i bought the blazer from a customer at my shop last year for $1100.oo it had 119,xxx miles on her. and came with stock and a set of after market wheels i sold the stock cause the others had new tires on them.
Stock.. (before my wreck..darn deer..)

as of when i joined BF..

this is after i found my grill guard in the trash and spent 40$ on paint for it then i painted the wheels flat black..
oh and a friend of mine had a 95 blazer that i got the new front end off of after the deer..
Installed the bumper lights..

Roof lights..




so i have alot more to do to my blazer here soon....

I am pretty sure you are completely copying me... I cranked a deer as well and rebuilt it... Although yours looks a little more sound.....

Its about time we see this thread...

Me too... Mine ended up covering from headlight to headlight and made a pretty nasty impact destroying my radiator... I have some pictures, but I am glad to hear you made it through... two freaks of coinicidence saved me and the fiancee...

The airbags didnt deploy (going 65 and hit a deer, no bags? wtf?) which probably would have completely destroyed her, and the hood latch broke in such a way the hood covered the windshield and launched the deer.

But back to your blazer... I am pretty sure I saw you, I drove through bartonville and caught a glimpse of what I thought was you turning left off of 24 right before 474.... But Can't say for sure.... When do we get to see the :icon _speaker1: again?

Wow, removing the side molding really makes a difference! Kinda makes me wanna go rip mine off right now lol.

I'm assuming that's a different bumper after the bambi incident. Did it already have the molding removed? I looked at my bumper and it looks like the molding is made into the bumper cover.

djerock, I have a question for you. You obviously removed the trim at the rear of the truck behind the back tires. Is that trim stuck on with double sided tape like the rest, or is it bolted in? I was out looking at mine earlier and I could feel some sort of studs sticking through on the back side where the trim is. I haven't done anything with it yet, just looking and getting some ideas for now.
