Looks real good! Maybe paint the bowtie to match the rest of the truck? Nice job.

check out lmc truck for the extreme side skirts, i know the regular cab short box s-10's have a 108" wheel base and a 4dr blazer is 107" so if you can find side shirts for an s-10 they might not be to difficult to mod in order to fit them on ur blazer.

how did you lower your Blazer with 4WD? Did you use a kit?
I'm in the process of tricking my 97 4D 4WD Blazer and I havent been able to find a lowering kit or the style of your front bumper. Can you help me out?

to lower your 4wd blazer in the front just back out your tbar bolts and then add blocks or new leaf springs in the rear. the bumper/valance in the pic is off an extreme model so youll have to check out ebay, LMC, or the dealer to find one. if you dont know how to back out your tbars look in the DIY section and youll find a thread showing you how to crank your tbars to gain lift and youll just have to turn the bolts the opposite way to lower.

Different rims and non-chrome bumper and you're set (after you get the X sideskirts of course).

I used the Belltech drop kit, 4 nitro drop shocks, torsion keys and blocks for rear. 3" all around. I got it off stylintrucks.com and shocks off jegs.com The X air dam is OEM off ebay so keep lookn on there.
Im thinking of painting the wheels all black.. should I do gloss or flat black?? Or should I leave them chrome? I had some OEM 18/19 c6 vette wheels on it but tires were too small, very nice tho.
