Default 1991 S10 Blazer 4 Door Build "Blazed"

Well I got this truck in a trade and decided to build it up, its a 1991 Blazer 4 door, I got it from a buddy that wanted my quad he owned it way before it was sas'ed. Its got 3/4 ton suburban axles with leafs upfront "hillbilly steering needs work" it also has a stock 350 sbc from a 92 fullsize with a 700r4 trans, it came with Advanced Adapters headers and motor mounts. It also has an almost new set of 36-15.50 Baja Claws "maybe 3 runs on the tires"

It needs alot of work yet but nothing to major and I hope to have it in silver lake memorial day weekend

soon to come....

Motor finished
Steering fixed
Floor repair
Rocker repair
Interior installed
New front clip

Likes and dislikes let me know














yes i know the tires are backwords

I see stacked rear lift blocks that will eject themselves if a traction aid is not installed. Very sketchy.

I did not see trac bars? They should be welded to the axle, not the lift blocks.

yea its more of a hot rod set up from what i see the trac bars are basically square tubing that runs under the leaf spring and has a rubber bushing at the end that under flex would hit the spring im guessing to stop spring wrap

Well given the body mounts are rotted out I'm sure the structural integrity is entirely gone. If the floor is that bad I can imagine what the rest of it looks like... I've owned 4 s10 3 of which blazers. If someone would do a double block on an axle I doubt anything else was done right either I also based this on your other rides like the rear axle didn't lline up so you chopped the quarter panel out... Pretty simple

Spoon fed no. I appreciate the whole cheap thing but there's still a right n a wrong way of doing things. Why not just make some longer shackels outa plate or at least weld the blocks?
