That's a nice looking Blazer in my favourite colour. Good luck with your build.

Looks good. I am interested how the Raptor liner works out for you. I am thinking I will fix rust in the rockers and rear wheel arches and would like to do the same paint scheme that your are thinking about.

Nice tires. I have the same ones in a 235/70R16. How are you liking them so far?

i will post pics when i get it done, i have no rust that i see and more just trying to prevent it in the future, and the tires are amazing, low road noise with mass amounts of grip on the mild trails and logging roads!

I drive a 94 Blazer and used to do off-roading. Impressive where a Blazer even with stock wheels can take you. Add what you did a set of good intermediate tires and it will take you places.

Have fun in the Washington wilderness.

Sounds like you are doing what I have kind of done to mine. I'm is my daily driver once the snow comes and I use it for going to wood for fishing and hunting. I'll be looking forward to what you choose to do.

Regarding the wheel spacers, I was planning only adding them to the rear, 1.25" ones to square-up the stance but you are going a bit wider. Can I ask why?
