    Pics of the \"Truck Blazer\" lifted.

    It was a Blazer, until the people I got it from grafted the back part of a truck cab onto the Blazer cab, making a shortbed.

    I got it for $600 needing a clutch in Dec '99, w/ a 350 and 1/2 ton running gear. It had a 3" body lift and 2 1/2" suspension lift with 33" tires.

    I then put a 400 SB in it, and a 4" suspension lift with 35" BFG M/T's. This was big to me back in the day when 33's were sizable tires.

    After the 400 began knocking, I put a 6" suspension lift and 38" Gumbo Mudders under it and added a 454. I thought I'd stop here .

    But now, I just had to go 2 more inches. So now, here it is with an 8" all spring suspension lift (purchased from Silver84k5), and 38" Swamper radials.

    I think I'm done with lifting it for now.

    Last things to do are another motor swap and a black paint job.

    Re: Pics of the \"Truck Blazer\" lifted.

    It's the actual K5 Body. They just cut a truck cab apart, and grafted the back of the cab onto the K5 cab. The body is all one piece. Makes kind of a short-shortbed.

    I got it back when I was looking for a K5 so I could haul passengers in the backseat. It kind of ruined that plan, but after I saw it, I just had to have it. Almost looks like a professional job...as if it came that way originally.

    When he said it was converted to an enclosed cab on the phone, I thought it was some butchered up job that looked horrible, and figured I'd undo what was done and turn it back into a regular Blazer. But not after I saw it. It took me about 5 minutes (or less) to decide to put a deposit on it, and come back and buy it.

    Kinda similar to this one that I did several years ago. Except I used a blazer frame and a pickup cab. Took a long box and shortened it too fit. Didn't hit the cab/box spacing quite right but close enough.
