88 Blazer "Red Rover"

  • This just came home this weekend, 110 miles no problems, hit 70 mph at times, with a bit of wandering but very driveable. Previous owner has put on 2.5" lift springs in the front, block in the rear and reduced the body lift to 1.5". 33x12.50 ProComp Xtreme A/T tires that look brand new and a Softopper that is in great shape, clear windows and no no leaks even after 2 hours of rainy ride home. Rear tailgate is from 86 pickup I believe and I have the blazer tailgate as well (power, needs parts to rebuild) Rear axle is 6 lug 14 bolt with factory posi and the front is 10 bolt from his 1980 Blazer, both sporting 3.73 gears.

    Goal is to drive this back and forth to work as my toy, 20ish miles each way and light wheeling and camping rig. First goal is to make it "pretty" so the wife hates it less, hitting Econo-Paint asap and repainting the front grille back to a nice silver. New trim on passenger side, Rally wheel center caps and beauty rings and the 'lipstick on a pig' portion of the projection will have reached its first stop.
