Default Redneck Navy ZR2

Greetings all,

Ive been reading this forum since I got my Blazer a year and a half ago. Ive gotten a lot of good ideas from it so I thought I would share what Ive done.

Its a 2001 Blazer ZR2. Here's how I got her.


Last summer I painted the front fenders and put a Uniden Pro520XL CB in place of the ashtray. Its hooked up to a Wilson Lil Wil Antenna. I use this a lot on trips too and from school. Its a blast to listen to the truckers.


This past January I put 2 KC 516s in the grill. I also put a cheap Walmart light on the rear tire carrier to help when Im backing up at home. I live in the country and it gets pretty dark. I put the switchs in place of the coin holder that I never used. Eventually the middle 2 switchs will power lights on the roof.




Also added this for the amusement value



This past weekend I disabled the AHL and did the Quad headlight mod.

My next plans are to get an Ebay CAI and make the head shield. Im hoping to do this over spring break. Ill keep this thread updated, but Its not going to move very fast due to lack of funds and lack of time.

nice looking truck! I like your placement off the back up light. Is the walmart light bright enough? I've been looking at em but haven't bit the bullet yet. I also like the placement of your switches, good idea.

Its plenty bright enough for what I need. Its more of a flood light even though its advertised as a driving light. The beam is pretty wide and it goes out to 50 feet or so.
