Blazer112 is on a distinguished road
Default Hello




I am doing this backward but I just read a thread about becoming a new member and realized my introduction was lacking.

My oldest brother bought his very first, brand new vehicle which was an 04 Chevy Blazer ZR2. Being his “first”, he really took care of it well.

This past summer he was married and needed a different vehicle. The Blazer has 125,000 miles and a dealer offered him $900 on trade-in. I loved the truck and offered to buy it with the intentions of renovating it in totally “stock” condition. (I have rebuilt a 71 GTO and 75 Impala/Cutlass). He didn’t have many problems with the truck and gave it to me bc he just didn’t want to see it leave the family. I don’t see many ZR2s of this era on the road and always loved the look of the Blazer. I have begun my project and am here to give/get advice when needed with the goal of making “Rufus” last another 16 years to be then given to my nephew and returned to its’ original family.

I have completed a ton of parts look up on Rufus and know where to “dig” for those OEM gems. (It helps being near the Motor City). Some are just not out there anymore; those I refurbish by hand. Anyway, if you have a question feel free to ask as I will answer if I am able.

Nice! Welcome to the forum!

It's cool you were able to keep the truck in the family. I'm sentimental with vehicles, also
