    I have been a member for awhile and decided I should finally post up pics of my build up so far.

    If you look at the rest of the pics you can see what happened to the rest of the blazer with the front end damage :( .

    So, for your rebuild, you took apart your blazer, smashed it up with a tractor, and bought another blazer? Awsome

    The 87 blazer that was smashed had bad frame damage but everthing else was in good shape( tbi, 700r4, 208 etc...). I got the 86 military blazer at a good deal because the 6.2 diesel had a blown head gasket, so I sold the engine, th400 and 208.

    I like the look of those military blazers too. Great shots on CarDomain.

    Every time you go to that yard you pass by DeNunzio's. Herman is a long time desert racer and runs a mail order parts business out of the body shop there. He has the good stuff, but call him first. Don't just wander over looking for something b/c he doesn't have a show room.
