Default 02 4 door blazer winter beater

Bought it cheap, got it running. Bought some 31x10.50 and some wheels. Basically a winter beater, I might lift If the tires don't fit, and do a little body work to make it looks nice.
Blazer

Tires

Wheels -12 offset 7.5 wide

What I hope it looks similar to when done

Cranked the T-bars, little bit of loving with a hammer, and only hits frame at full lock.

I wish they would work, but its a 4 door. I have read people use ZR2 flares, or modify 2 door bushwacker flares, but can't find a good write up on how to do it, and that is a lot of coin to throw down and end up fuking up.

Also, once I drove it and the suspension settled it doesn't stick out as far, plus I like the look of the mexicruiser.

Lol, mexicrusier.
That's weird they don't make flares for the 4 door.
Any other plans for it?

Gonna have to do the lift, it rubs pretty bad, think I am going to opt for the rough county 2.5"(Since it already needs shocks, and upper control arm bushings , Plus I work at a dealer so I get a really good deal )

I almost did, and almost wish I did, would have been cheaper and less likely to look like shit after a year or two.

Whyyy?????? Yes Ugly, but it keeps the center of gravity lower, and suspension factory, which means it is safer. Only reason I am going suspension over body It it needs shocks all the way around, and upper control arm bushings, so the suspension kit it more practical.

Mother Fawking rust. I have been pulling it apart so I am ready when the lift comes. The font came apart somewhat easy(was apart last year). Rear leaf spring bolt and shackle bolt were a nightmare to get out. I haven't got the keys out yet, which I heard is the biggest bitch of the whole lift kit. Fuck Michigan's need to use salt on the roads.
