Well, this is not the red two-door I had - But it's got what it needs!

Black four-door with Slate grey Leather.

Mods soon! Lots of mods!

First thing, get those hideous running boards off! LoL

Enjoy!

P.S. It's rediculously low.

Nice. If I had to do it all over again I would get a four door as well. Any reason you stuck with 95-97? Leftover parts?

Thanks folks. Trying to find a 4x4 in the middle of winter here was a real hunt.

I can't really say it was our intention to stay in the 2.1 generation - This one is OBDII instead of the ODBI like the red one was.

The truck has 134K on it - not too bad for the given year it is. There were a lot of local 2000~2004s that needed Transmissions that were being let go for cheap! A ton of the green and the blue variants as well - not a blue or green guy. Found a few Silver/Platinum Blazer/Jimmys but they were snatched up so fast.

At the end of the day - the only one I had any luck with was a retired older man that brought the truck down from Kentucky and decided he just didn't want an SUV. He never had it titled but did more than a bit of work to it. I'm fine with that. All said and done $2500 brought it home and we are happy. It's so smooth, and it sounds tight without any rattles. The wife was/is more than impressed, she stated to me that she would not mind rolling around in a four door if it were like this one! LoL I think she has grand ideas!
