so I recently purchased a 2001 Chevy S-10 Blazer Extreme. I am slowly but surely bringing this beast back to life. I have been trying to find a dash for it but so far the only one I have found is on Ebay. The seller wants $500.00. So my question is does anyone know of a dash out of another vehicle that would work in the 01 Blazer extreme and how much modifications would have to be done?

Junkyards, as far as I know there’s no difference between an Xtreme and regular s10s dash. I think ‘98 to ‘04 is all the same.

You are correct there is no difference. None of the salvage yards around have any decent ones. It's like every Blazer from 98 to 04 vanished.

Doesn't have to be a Blazer... Chevy S10, Blazer, GMC Sonoma, Jimmy, Envoy, Isuzu Hombre, Oldsmobile Bravada... at some point in 2002 (and earlier in Bravadas), they went to double DIN radios.

Yes Sir I have researched as far as the trail blazers s-10 s-15 jimmys bravado. I know that most of them are good to fit but again I am unable to locate anything out there in better condition than what I already have. This would be the reason I am asking if any knows of something other than those already mentioned that may work with minimal modifying as i am no fabricator.

Then you're better off having a stock one repaired then you are trying to make another vehicle's dash fit. That takes real skill, and to make it look and function right takes even more.

Do you know of any place or person that may do repairs. mine is so dry and brittle from sitting some parts I can just touch and it will crumble or break.

Where are you located? Most dashes in the junkyards in the upper mid west and New England area are still pretty good since those climates don't get the continual hot sun the south has.

You'll probably have to travel or import a dash. I've sold and shipped a number of 1st gen dashes and one 95-97 dash. The 98+ are a bit larger in size, which is what kills the shipping. The guy on eBay asking $500 isn't too crazy. I could probably do one for about $350-400 shipped from Oregon depending on what shipping costs are.

I have a 02 sonoma double din dash minus bezel and upper defrost vent that's been smoothed and painted Dupont hot rod black.

I found 4 98+ in our local Wrench-a-Part that were still relatively "soft" and uncracked. Of course, I have no idea what kind of shape they'll be in once the dash is pulled. I need a couple, I'll give it a shot in a couple of weeks when they run a half-off special.
97 and earlier - forget it.

Hi J-
A few years ago I purchased an impounded 2001 S10 Blazer Extreme from a junkyard and parted it out. I used the engine, various wiring harnesses, and other parts for use in my 2001 S10 Blazer extreme. I did keep the dash, see photo. I don't know if you found one yet.

I'm looking for the dash board that everything connect into not the gages. You didn't keep that portion did you?

Unfortunately, no. I thought about that after I replied.
Just an FYI- you would be better to find one in a junked donor Xtreme and carefully remove it yourself. The dash on these 2001 Xtremes are unbelievably complicated wiring wise, but the entire dash can be removed as a unit after the steering column is lowered. The dash harness has mass connectors so you can disconnect them and remove the entire unit without disassembling the dash. You will find after removing all screws, the dash can be lifted and removed.
If you plan on restoring your 2001 Blazer for street use with all the computer systems, try to find the same year vehicle.
