I hope I don't get flamed for posting a big backlog, but if I'm gona do a project thread I want to tell the history of the truck, to show how far it's come.
I bought the truck in march 2007 when I was a senior in high school, I bought it bone stock off a dealer lot (back in Boston where I'm originally from) it was a trade in it had about 64,000 miles and I bought it for $4500.
Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of it stock but this was the first "look" I had. 2" lift shackles, with stock size bfgoodrich radial t/a's, custom y-pipe back 2 1/2" exhaust. (Lou's custom exhaust ss signature series muffler). Street Scene Mirrors. East Coast Customs roll pan.
Used to have two 15" Boston Acoustic Subs
And the gayest interior lights ever, yup, proof this was high school.
Stock motor mounts always felt sloppy changing them was one of the first major wrenching jobs I did.
Messing around with egr restrictors and blockoffs back in the day.
2" Lift springs in the front to even it out with the back.
I loved these tires, great tires. 31x10.50 Yoko Geolander Ats
Feeling like a boss, mini monster truck.
Still had my mass plates in cali for so long lol.
Rancho rs5000 shocks all around.
Brazilian/real euro taillights were all the rage on this forum back in the day.
Big day rolling 100k.
Working a summer job back in mass. I ended up making a 7.5 aluminum diff cover instead of 8.5 by accident, smh, dumbass. Custom Balljoint spacers, Flaming rivered the lower steering shaft.
I had to do so much research to figure out I could just use a jeep nv3500 kit and swap out the shaft, Hurst Short Throw.
Used a mustang shift stick boot adapter with some sliced lengthwise black tubing. Stock blazer boot.
I was so pumped about this mod, still in love with it.
