Default Project: Road Warrior (lots of pics)

Well I figure i should start a build thread now that ive been on here for a long time and i am starting to do a lot of things to my truck

I feel like i have been keeping everyone in the dark here because of all the things ive done to it! haha

Well heres the day i took it off the used car lot.



Then the first thing i did to it was get the exhaust done. Here is a video of that:

Then a while later i got the high flow cat on. Heres a video of that, a long time after i got it done lol but still:

Then i got my sound system put in, I have another one in but Heres a pic of the old one:




Next was my HID's. 8000K 55W:




After that was a big gap in time, then came my bull bar. I havent wired up my lights yet but here it is:



And shortly after, my roof rack:



And now finally what i have been wanting to do for the two years that ive owned it my lift! 2" body lift, now sitting on some brand new 31" Goodyear DuraTracs:

Almost sits as high as the Burban



Sitting next to my friends stock Blazer:











Thought i would have to do a little trimming but i didnt :P


So thats it so far but im still trying to figure out what my next project will be.

But soon to come is:
  • A spare tire carrier if i can find one
  • Light bar, when i get done making it
  • Then hopefully a 1.5" lift shackle and a 1" torsion bar crank.


Hopefully you like it, I will keep this updated from now on with what i do to my truck.

I agree. That 2" looks perfect, and/or the tires are exactly right for the lift. Either way, I like

Thanks guys!

And yeah i like the rims but unfortunately i was told they are getting chrome peel on the inside where the tire seats.. so they might not be good for much longer.

Well if you get new ones get black ones! I think they would match your truck alot better!

Yeah it will definitely be some soft 8's when i get new rims.

As for the tires im not sure if i made the right choice in having white letters out.. I kinda like it but i think it might look better with black letters out.
