    You can see the glue on the front fender on the Pass Side where there used to be another flare that isn't there anymore. I am not sure why they would put them on the front and not the back???

    how did it get from tennesee to central texas? do those shows fix up trucks from areas other than where they are filmed?

    It was sold on ebay awhile back. Maybe the buyer was from Texas. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    I say no. Trucks redid the interior to black and the seats were Wet Okole. There was one episode with nothing but interior upgrades, including dying the plastic interior parts black.

    I remember that now.. but it does look like the dash and door panels are black.. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    But its funny. Same color, same hood, same bumpers...

    If its not, someone went to alot of trouble to make it "look" like it. OR... someone really FUBAR'ed the one Z3PR posted. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I might be wrong, but I thought Trucks did a 89 Blazer. This is a 88. Plus they did make the inside black and I thought they replaced the seats? This is grey and stock seats. I say this is in no way the Blazer from Trucks.

    Hmmm... seems to be my Dad used my account this morning to post under my name /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Anyways, I watched the Big Blaze religiously and I must say its a tough call to make. I remeber when Stacy first posted this thing on Ebay and he also posted on this webiste about the Big Blaze being for sale. When it was first for sale, he did yank the Ramjet 350 out and put a carb'd one back in. The Dash is black, but not the center console, that I think was swapped out in the original buildup of Big Blaze.

    If you look carefully, you can see the ARB Air Switches on the Dash, where they were on the show. The Bumpers are without a doubt the same also. When BB first went on Ebay, it had only the front Bushwhacker flares on, because while taping the show, it shows Stacey rub the 37" MTR's...

    Here is the major difference I see, BB had a twin-stick Atlas transfer case swapped in there. What is clearly shown is a 208 or 241 Transfer case /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    You know, Stephenville is only a couple of hours away and I know for dang sure if I went up there, I could deffinatly find out if its the real deal or not.

    ALSO, where are the snaps to the Bestop Soft top, the top they installed on that show required drilling into the body. I don't see them on the photo.

    This Blazer is far too alike to be BB but there then again its not. This is bugging the hell out of me /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    BB was on ebay twice I remember, both times it had had a few more parts robbed off it. That is probably it, just been run into the ground.

    I think it's funny that they used the TRUCKS reference. Anyone one checking pictures from the show would see how butchered it is from its glory days. That would make me afraid to touch it.
