Default Project: Little Big Truck!

Hey guys! my name is Tim, I live in Michigan, I build cars as a hobby and work at a chevy dealership. This is my first Off road project and my first domestic project.

my usual projects are turbo imports AWD/RWD but this time I bought this because I needed something to get me through the winter up here in MI
Except this was to stock for me so the modding begins.

started off with a little deer protection


Added a roof basket and spare.

next some off road lights.

little rusty, I have OCD against rust so that had to be fixed.

new panel

wanted some lift so I bought 2 inch shackles

Not bad for a quick project, besides some more off road lights on the basket, plus regular maintenance Im done putting money into her.
Should prove to be a good 4x4 winter car.
This took me about 3 months to do. I have owned the blazer since september 2014
let me know what you guys think

I didn't like it at first but after putting deer up there and gas cans and other things that I wouldn't want inside my blazer, I decided to keep it. I think it will blend in more with 4 KC lights mounted on it.
