The change from 2-3 inch body for more clearance. Got the rubber to meet the steel inner fender crossing a dtich line by a field so I had to go up. i wont let the tires rub, again forgot to had a hacked 2 inches or so off the rear of the front fenders after the 305-65-17 MTs.


Here is a shot of the Hooker exhaust setup I went with and really like. Not too noisy but a little sound and seems to runs better. Also in this shot is my whiskey and coke and the body lift/mount

Bumpers off for the extra height




great before shot but cant find the extra with the added inch


Blocks and bolts went in good and the front bumper stuff did too, but the rear needed some adjustment since it was a prototype MarkMC hooked me up with.


But it got on and fit better than stock

Got the body lift all on and put it in the National 4x4 Jamboree and got an absolute ton of attention. I was the tallest functioning Trailblazer there. I never really entered a show, so I decided to put some stuff about the build and I had a ton of people asking how, what, wow, where can i get one?






I know it is show and not wheeling but it was pretty cool leading in 4 JK's and then having more attention paid to mine than theirs.

FYI I will get my pics from work and everywhere else and try to make this more coherrent, but I was kinda pushed to make a thread. I have pics of most installs and know I forgot stuff. I will properly edit 1st post with a list of the whole setup tomorrow, but I got a start now.

Test of Stinger bumper. Will be edone at some point, hopefully soon, but is stronger than the stock bumper and mounted better as well. I fugure it is better than just removing the front bumper cover and it added a bar in front of the lower radiator and will provide a nice mount place for a radiatior skid.

BARTONMD First STEEL SKIDPLATE--Thanks

Been wanting to try some 35s, so I had these Yota rims i got awhile back...Anyone know what they are called or info so i can find centers?... 15x8. I found some 35x12.50x15 KM1s well used but siped and some tread left to play with and do a couple months of test fit without big expenditure.

It is cold but decided that I could use the LP heater to warm the beads and some whiskey to warm me and figred I would mount them myself. Only took about and hour and a half and a drink and a half to mount all four.



Went white letter out due to wear patterns and to complete what think of as old school look on these tires and wheels. 15 yrs ago I had the BFG MT with letters out on some similar wheels on my frst lifted blazer, so the look brought some good ole memories out.




Stance is better than the 33s and it looks like they should clear, but the firewall may need some massaging went turned and tucked.
