Yup it the same truck... its come a long way... but the journey isn't over.
Ok so the story. I got the truck from my mom in fall of '06. Being the imaginative person i am a had big dreams for it. but all big dreams need money, which i was lacking. so i did a little here and there. I moved to Green Bay in the fall of '07 and thats when things went crazy. (just to put in prospective, i had dual exhaust and a cowl hood thats about it) I started work at Advance Auto Parts where i met my best friend James (owner of the '02 blazer extreme). He was my motivation. we had lost of ideas, first we lowered it. then i did a little motor work (edlbreck intake and cam kit with chip, MSD coil, wires, cap, and rotor.) then it got lowered more. total hight off the ground from my front bumper is 5" and 3.75" off the side frame rail. thats right its frickin low. ok so for all those people that know a little something about cars mostly s-10's/blazers's/bravada's yes that is a bravada body kit and yes it was pain in the ass to work it into a pickup. it took 2 complete bravada kits to make it all work.
A few shots from drop fest '08

Step 1....i took 22 gage steet to a break to make the scoop. I did it. not a shop
Step 2... The bondo. first i put a layer of tiger hair on for most of the fill work. then came a few layers of chromalite bondo, and LOTS of sanding.......
Step 3... Primer. shes all ready to go. this is how she sits till i get the paint and can paint the rest of the truck.
the new exhaust...
Thats right 4" chrome tips

where to start... well the latest mod is that kickass cowl-induction hood that i just put on... and you aint gonna see this hood anywhere but this truck... cuz its hand made... well the scoop anyway... and yes its fully functional.
Ok so that was fun... well i also put in some 9" L.E.D. strips curticy of Advance Autoparts... Much better than the cheap neons.

Well i got my neon lights wired up tonight...
The pictures dont do it any justice but you get the idea...
This is my amp all lit up lookin good...
ok so i ran into a bit of a problem the other day (1-2-07). i had a small water leak at the back of my intake. well whan i went to fix it, the heater hose fitting snapped of. needless to say the only way to fix it right was pull the intake. so i spen three long nights after work fixing it.... here are pictures....
i also put in an electric fan and wired part of my center. ill have pics tomorrow.
Ok, so today I got my diamond plate center made. I'm going to be putting 3 or 4 gauges at the top, toggles in the center, and a universal fuse block at the bottom with a cover plate over the fuses.
I also found a coolent leak, turns out the rear heater core hoes to the intake was cracked. Well now its broke. So im putting a new intake on. I got the old one off tonight and i'll get some pics of it tommorow.
This is a shot under the hood with my K&N air filter in. It's been in for awile but i just got around to getting a pic of it.
Just another shot of my kickass subs that sit right behind me.
Happy New Year!

**1000watt Legacy Blue Dimond amp
**2 Pyramid 700watt 12" subs in custom boxes that I built (solid Ash...leaves a nice tight bass)

I haven't upgraded my head unit yet because all my music is on my Apple iBook, so the only way to play my music is with a CD cassette adapter. If anyone knows of a head unit with an 1/8" input jack let me know.
