Update 10/14/05: Well, I've pretty much stopped working on my '93 and put all effort into my '89. This round of buildups is nearly complete and s... Show moreo far I have: Dana 60 front with a limited slip, 14 bolt rear with a detroit, 4.56 gears, 39.5" boggers, 350/700R4/NP241, Warn 8274 winch, workin on on board air, custom home brew shock setups, about 6" of suspension lift, a dovetailed rearend, front axle relocated 1.5" forward, and a whole bunch of other stuff that I can't think of right now. No real carnage yet, I'm headed to an off road park on the 22nd to see what it can do.
This is the latest picture. It now has Ultra rims, new BFG's in front, minor fender trimming, a '98 Chevy grille (with new inserts and lamps), projector headlights, fog lights, and chrome plated plastic (HA!) KC Daylighter covers. Tell me what you think in the guestbook please.
This is my pride and joy. It's a '93 Chevy Fullsize Blazer. I'll admit, I did buy it with the lift already installed, but it would have happened anyway. The lift is a 4" Trailmaster system. The rims are American Racing Outlaw 2's wrapped with 33x12.50R15 BFG All Terrains. Everything that's been done to my truck so far I've done with the help of a few friends. I don't take pictures during installs because I'm busy INSTALLING shit. If you have any questions just e-mail me and I'll answer you within a couple of days.
Just a few pictures before I clean up. I live in kind of a rich neighborhood so watching everybody's jaw drop when I come home is great fun.
Probably the only picture you'll ever see of me. What you didn't see is that after taking this shot the back of my shirt and jeans were completely brown and black. And of course, as you can see, I'm a fricken giant. Sometimes we take the yellow car in the background mudding too. 4400 pounds, bald tires, and soft ground make a pretty funny mixture
Now all I need are light covers that say MOVE BITCH.
First pics in my driveway, I swear I stood there for 3 hours.
My two best pictures. The color combo is maroon and light gold. It looks awesome in the sun.
A vast improvement but there's still a little work to be done.

The 3M Tape Bug Screen install. This one took me the whole weekend. Now back to reality...if you plan on doing any driving in the early evening where I live ... Show moreyou NEED one of these.I put a screen and shield on to protect the paint and keep the radiator free of bugs.Getting a good picture of the engine in this truck is a bitch, and I'm 6'4". I sanded down my air filter housing because it was starting to rust and hit it with a few coats of rustoleum.The clear corners came about 6 months after I ordered them. It took about 15 minutes to put them in but I really think they add something. They're street legal but the local cops are so dumb I'm surprised I haven't gotten pulled over yet.My aluminum bowtie. The old one cracked and fell off so it gave me a good excuse to go buy a new one. You know you like that shiny reflection. Anyone know where I can get chrome snaps to cover up the black ones on my grille?My latest addition is a Go Rhino grille guard. It's sturdy as hell and doesn't take very long to install. You also get to keep your tow hooks. I highly reccomend the grille guard and the lights.To Do List:1.Westin Taillight Guards2.Nu Image Blue Flame GuagesPage 1: ExteriorPage 2: Interior/SystemPage 3: Performance ModsPage 4: Appearance Mods Show Less
I finally got my DD 9515 in. It's in my old box right now. It pounds even in an enclosure that's way too small. I don't have pictures yet. Check ... Show moreback soon.This is a diagram of what my system currently looks like.I ordered the CD player from Crutchfield. They give you everything you need and make installation really simple. It's a Pioneer DEH-7400MP. It puts out 200 watts peak, plays Mp3 CD's, and has sub pre-amp outputs, which I plan on using in the near future. I couldn't get the original radio out so it's gonna stay put. These are the two front speakers. Memphis Power Reference 4". They sound really nice. The grilles and tweeters didn't agree so out came the Dremel tool.Just the two rear 4x10's. They sound good considering how bad the location is. I've always wanted to ask GM why they put the speakers in the headliner. They suck for imaging and the wiring must have been a bitch. I guess the interior panels or doors woulda been too easy.A Memphis 16-ST1000D is powering my sub. It puts out 1100 watts RMS at 1 ohm. The sub will be wired in parallel so that's what it will be run at. The final mounting location is under my front passenger seat. My sub. It's an Audiobahn AW1208Q. It's a 12" that handles 1500 watts RMS and weighs somewhere in the neighborhood of 32 pounds. It has dual 2 ohm coils that I'm running in parallel. The cone is aluminum and the surround is a massive 2 inches. The box is 3/4" MDF and 3.0 net cubic feet. It's not the best looking one in the world but it was built by a local SPL competitor that knows what he's doing. The setup isn't really anything special but it's the loudest I've ever heard one 12. People ask me if I have a couple sealed 15's.This is what the system will consist of when I'm finished I hid several tools inside the spare and put a cargo liner in it so all my muddy hunting gear won't ruin anything. On the right is what you see when you take the glove compartment out. Bet you didn't know you could get into all that good shit by removing four screws.To Do List:1.Skull Shifter For 4WD2.Wire For Cell PhonePage 1: ExteriorPage 2: Interior/SystemPage 3: Performance ModsPage 4: Appearance Mods Show Less
