Default Well, I bought a "new" truck!

Okay, the blue Blazer is gone, but I bought another one.
It's a 2001 Chevrolet Blazer Xtreme. Has 130k on it, but Looks great, drives great, and I got it for a good deal(shh. Ain't gonna say)

so, here's to a new ride that i hope lasts longer than the previous one, haha.


Right after I bought it.

Now, I need a name for it...

It's in great shape. I need to put my radio in it because it has this kinda old Sony one it.
But it's clean. I'll take more pics later. Also has a viper alarm in it, and the guy threw in some HIDs for free. He gets them in bulk from Sylvania.

I am xtremely jealous! (lame joke but true). That thing looks so clean! I wish I lived in Florida and could have a lowered truck and still be practical!

What have you got planned for that thing?

For now? Tires, then stereo.
But I want to get some chrome Boss 327 rims, white trim for the dash, tint tailights, black bowtie, try and find the same signals that were on my old truck, and the Xtreme front plate cover. Might be it. Maybe debadge it, not sure. At least I don't have stripes to worry about.

*Moved to 'General Chat'*
Looks really good, but if you ever have starting or stalling issues check out that Viper system. They have been known to be the culprit before.

Thanks for the heads up and the move, Rich.

Yeah, the truck needs a few things done, nothing major.
So far, no regrets.
