Great White Re-Build

It feels good to be 'home'! The Jeep was a fun little project but I'm glad to have an S10 again, I've always been a Chevy guy.

So I was trying to sell the Jeep and was planning on building the Blazer that my dad is currently driving to work when I ran across this hot mess. I called the guy up and he wanted to trade but didn't have any cash to put with it so he offered to deliver it from an hour south of Nashville (6 hour round trip). I also stripped all of the goodies off of the Jeep (Nice CD player, winch, CB, etc). I had probably $1500-$1600 in the Jeep and he ended up paying $200 for the winch I had on it. Overall, I'm really pleased even though it needs a ton of work.

This will be more of a re-build than anything but I hope you guys enjoy seeing it transform into the vision that's in my head. The bones are all there but needs to be properly re-built.

Step 1 is figuring out what I really have. What I know for sure is:
94 S10 x-cab body and bed
S10 4wd frame
TBI 4.3 with unknown 5 speed and 231 case
78 Ford F250 Dana 44 front
78 Ford F250 Dana 60 rear (taken out)
37" Iroks


Cleaned it up a bit but still need to pressure wash under the passenger side. It was caked with mud.


Maybe able to clean up this side tonight.


Not sure what brand but theres a winch hiding back there.


I need some new main leafs on all 4 corners.


The huge front bumper will get cut off but it makes a good seat/step when working under the hood for now.


Rock sliders are c-channel so I'll do something in tube later on.


Interior is gutted and what's left is trashed. Will be swapping out the seats soon and cleaning up the wiring under the dash. Also will build a center console to house my CB and a few other things.


I was told it was a 4cyl auto at one time. I think this is the reason for the jacked up wiring.


Scary steering! I'll order a high steer arm for the passenger side and have the knuckle machined flat.


Will need all new brake lines all around, hard and soft.


I've got matching seats but will need to find a ds seat slider. Holes in the floor need to be welded before they go in.


Man... this will be a lot of work.


U bolt plates and shock mounts are broke. New axle swap kit for the 14 bolt has already shipped.


PO broke and removed the yoke and the pinion and ring gear and grinding together. 14 bolt is getting swapped in ASAP.

Do you ever make it over towards Somerset or London? My in laws live over there. I'd love to have the springs but the center console id hate to have to cut up (same as you with the springs).

Re: Great White Re-Build

Atleast all the Building Blocks are There A LiL TLC & Patience is all it needs IF it had a 4banger someone swapped a 2wd body then But thats Easy just find a 94 TBI 4.3 S-series to pull wiring from if its that Hacked up IF Your doin a V8 stay with 94 or 95 wiring with the the PCM under the dash to only have 1 PCM on the Overflow when its done... Bout all I can think of right off the bat LoL
Other than some less than Pro Fab work Its Not that Bad Glad Your in an S10 again

Re: Great White Re-Build

I haven't had a chance to fully inspect the wiring but I know there is fuse block under the dash not being used and a fuse block in the side of the dash. Maybe someone swapped the entire wiring harness, I don't know... If I could find a nice 94-95 4.3 TBI 5 speed harness, I'd grab it up in a hurry.

I ran the VIN at work this morning and it came back as a 94, ext. cab, 4.3, 2wd. Here's where it get interesting, didn't all 2wd's have a coil spring bucket in the front of the frame? This one looks like every other 4wd that I've had however, it does have a chunk cut out of a crossmember right were the transfer case is.

Re: Great White Re-Build

That's what I was thinking, 4wd frame and 2wd body. I wonder which one the motor is from? I'd really like to talk to the guy that originally threw this thing together.

That makes sense. I'm anxious to get the dash out and see what what kind of wiring is back there.

Re: Great White Re-Build

Interior cleaned and ready to patch holes in the floor. I'll spray some bedliner on it before the seats go in.



And put my mirrors on it.

Re: Great White Re-Build

yep looks like my 92 first gen under the hood + shifter lol

I haven't looked that close of my first gen frame, but could it be sitting on a first gen frame with 2nd gen body?

The front bumper mounts were the difference I knew but this truck has the frame horns cut off. Is it actually a 98+ core support or is the grille and headlights attached with unconventional means?


Tearing my truck down was fun!

B-quiet mat was the best deal I could find on insulating mat that wasn't asphalt based. I used 100sq feet that cost around $200. My truck is quieter on the highway than anything else I've driven (even a few brand new cars) and it has the aerodynamics of a brick and 35'' tires

Also used harbour freight rubberized leak seal and their truck liner to spray the hard to reach areas like inside of the doors.
Rustoleum leak seal was the best, I used it in areas that could be seen after the panels were on. (but it cost more than twice as much)

The body being a 94 should sharethe same frame as a first gen, aswell as the shifter location for the transmission.

I think it's a newer core support although the headlights don't fit quite right.
And I probably won't do any sound deadening since I'd like to find a crew cab to put on this frame eventually, but it's good to know how much I'd need.

Yep, that's the same as what's in mine. Round steering column and all. I really wish my interior was that nice!

I actually read your whole build the other day at work since we've got the same front axle.

Re: Great White Re-Build

Don't use the rapter liner for a spray in. Its a really good price but I did my whole interior of my JK with it and it didn't hold up well at all. I was pretty rough with it but nothing like the abuse a truck bed sees. I even went overboard with prepping, scuffed all the existing paint (took a whole day almost) then took it to a buddy's paint booth, wiped the whole tub down, sprayed an acid etching primer and then sprayed the raptor liner in. It could be something I did wrong, but I feel like I did everything I could to prep it. Just my 10 cents! when I get ready to pull my carpet on my blazer I'll either try something else, get it linexed, or just spray paint it.

Re: Great White Re-Build

I always use the cheap Duplicolor bed liner in a can from Walmart. It's thin but with no prep it sticks to everything!

Re: Great White Re-Build

I probably should have used Monstaliner but the stuff in the can has always worked for me, until now. Both cans I bought wouldn't spray unless I held them upside down.

Anyway, once I got the holes patched and figured out the spray can, it turned out OK. At least the seats aren't covered in mud and grease and actually slide back so I can get in it.











Taking off work this Friday to put the rear axle in. Then i'll be able to cruise around the yard and see how well it runs.

Re: Great White Re-Build

Thanks- There just the old seats out of my old 93 Blazer.

Smells better too! I found a Grant steering wheel with a flat bottom that I might order. I'm 6'4" and it's a little hard to get in with out the tilt column. I thought this might make it easier. What do you think? It looks a little like it belongs on a ricer...

Re: Great White Re-Build

I think the steering wheel will look fine provided you also get a big block and larger tires and crush cars.

Re: Great White Re-Build

haha i don't know about a big block but bigger tires and crushing cars sounds good.

Actually, I thought about selling the 42's that I've got and using the money for high steer and maybe gears or lockers. It's just going to take so much more work to use those tires.

I used monstaliner on my truck and in my opinion it doesn't seem to be that much better than any other bed liner. I've managed to put some gouges in it and chips off just like most other bed liners.

Re: Great White Re-Build

I used monstaliner on mine over 4 years ago and the only places I have issues are the places I know for a fact I slacked I the prep work! All other places are holding up perfectly fine. The most notable things about it for me is that it's UV protected so even now if I wash it it will look almost as good as the day I applied it and the fact that it lays down with a much smoother texture than most other liners on the market. I can wash it with a sponge and wipe it with micro fiber and nothing gets caught in it. It's also nice cause if you run a shin across it you get to keep your skin!!!

Re: Great White Re-Build

I need some advice. I plan on putting the 14 bolt in tomorrow and I'd like to lower the truck a little while I'm under there. I'm thinking about 2-3" would get me to where I want to be. The truck has super long shackles, 3" lift blocks and a 3" body lift.

How would you go about lowering it?

Remove/cut down the blocks? Shorten the rear shackles? The body lift will probably stay since it gives me good access to the trans and transfer case.

I think Terry and I are going to swap springs sometime down the road to so the ZR2 springs might lift if back up a little.

I used herculiner. Pretty good and cheap, just prep well and lay it on thick.

I'd pitch the blocks in the scrap pile and mock it up to see how you like it. Don't like it, different shackles and/or springs.

That's what I might do. Lose the 3" blocks then an aal will give me about an inch to inch and a half back.

Re: Great White Re-Build

Our doctor was awesome with Bentleys shots they came in two strong and hit both shots at the same time in opposite legs so it was done and over quick! He never cried more than 3-5 seconds and was over it.

Re: Great White Re-Build

42'' sounds pretty big, but is being street legal and daily drivable a concern for this truck?

Being tall you'll probably like the first gen seats more, when I put 2nd gen seats in my first gen it raised the seating position a good inch or more. 2nd gens have a thicker bucket and foam.
