Well, as far as 1st gen body lifts go. I payed under $100 for a new 3 inch PA body lift from Amazon.com. BUT if that is the older model trailmaster with the bumper relocation brackets, that would keep you from the need to fab up your own brackets. As long as it's in goodshape and you like it. It should work.

Only way to get that is if it has the bumper brackets. Not sure if the rear one is gonna work or not on a blazer but the front one might make it work plus the fact you won't have to mod as much.

Other than that you can get BLs cheaper and $100 sounds a bit high for a used one.

Good point, completly overlooked the pickup to suv bracket thing. They are diffrent, in the back at least. Like I said the 3 inch I got came with everything except for gap guards and bumper brackets for like 90 bucks with shipping. Brand new.

Something to keep in mind. If that kit is used, see if it comes with the throttle linkage with the extension welded in. If not, I'd say that metal extension is missing and you'll have to fab something for that too. (Shouldn't be a big deal though).

1/4 inch or 3/8th rod for the extension in a first gen. I forget exact size but it can easily be picked up at any hardware store for under $5 I bet.
