So I recently bought a 96 blazer 4 door 2wd. It was 1 owner with around 160,000 miles. Strong running 4.3l vortec and has no problems. Leather interior with electric everything. I scored it off craigslist for $1200. It was supposed tio be clean mild static drop family ride but the wife agreed it needs bags.

So far all I have done is all red LED Taillights,Billet Poker suit rearview mirror,10k HID's,Sport Mirrors,and the 17x8" KMC 68 wheels I bought from Redrider here on the board. I bought the rollpan and step shavers also just waiting on them to come in. Before anyone sees the pic and says it needs to be lowered ill throw out there that im waiting on the front bag kit,air management and drop spindles to show up at my house. As for the rear it is just getting mini notch for now and taking it as low as possible.

But here she is...

Just a little tip brother. Order from Newmaticsinc.com Talk to Sunny! He is by far the best in the game for air ride parts. #1 in customer service, I deal with him all the time and he gets parts out and shipped stupid fast. Never once a problem and Ive been dealing with him a little while now.
Ive done business with Suicidedoors/Qualityairride/thorbro.com and IMO they have way too many customers and work to be done and not enough sttay to handle it all.
Stay away from Ebay deals and the cheap shit. If you're going to be pressurised air under your vehicle you want quality fittings/lines/bags ect ect
Just my .02 cents
air ride should fun and reliable.. not a headache cause u went the inexpensive route ya dig :D

edit: BTW nice Blaze bro

Everything he said above is truth. Don't go cheap, you'll regret it. do it right the first time and you'll love it, do it cheap and it'll be nothing but a headache.

Gimp it was actually the ssd kit listed on there but for some reason the sale didnt go through so I just ordered everything from the ssd website. I keep your buddy in mind when i order again. Right now all im lacking to have the front done is the fittings and switches. I cant wait for all this to come in and my brother to get out of his wheel chair so he can do the grunt work and ill handle the plumbing and wiring.:haha:

Gimp your truck is clean as F*CK too. When mitch (MR.Cripple) first had his accident he was convinced he could never drive a mini again and I told him about a guy who was paralyzed from the waist down in a chair at a show a few years back with a clean ass bodied xcab that the front and the 3rd door were welded together and on a sliding system like a van. It was bad ass too.

Kinda glad he is over his depression and building something and also Im glad he lets me help him with the parts he needs.
