I'm surprised they spaced the crossmember down like that.

Man that doesnt look like 4" of lift and 35s though. You sure it wasnt like 2.5" lift deavers in the back and like 6" up front? Just looks taller to me. :dunno:

I tried to use the same seats. The heat wont work using the stock switches. The control module (window switch) needs an rpm signal on the class 2 data line to allow them to tun on. You will have to use a relay and switch.

Does anyone know what the stock distance is from the center of the hub to the top of the fender?

I can go measure it and tell you what it is for a 6" lift on 35s if you want.

Thats a nice truck man.

Read alot on here and you will find all the information you need.

Out of curiosity, what does GMTC charge for a build like yours, don't need an exact figure just a range.

it cost me 15k... And that's about average. It would have cost me about 11 if I didnt repaint it

Thanks for sharing. As much as that is a chunk of money on a $2k truck, i think that is pretty reasonable for all the labor/parts that went into it.

Sure a lot more fun than buying a 2005 Tahoe like everyone else!

Beautiful Blazer man! One of the cleanest offroad rigs I've seen.

That price is REALLY fair in my opinion. Heck up here there getting a minimum of $4000.00 just for a complete paint job!
