Default 2 dr blazer 4 seats

It's time to have 4 seats so that my daughter can ride and any other passengers that want to ride. The extended cab s10 just wasn't going to have room and hoping to improve on overall height and weight . Better drive shaft angles and more up travel in the suspension would be nice too.



This is my previous truck '95 s10 extended cab , 42"pitt bull rockers, 383 vortec stroker, sm465, 203/205 doubler, super duty 60 front 5.13 gears,ARB , shaved 14 bolt rear 5.13 gears welded, triangulated 4 link front and rear, 16"ORI struts, 9000# electric front winch, 40,000+# rear PTO winch



This is the blazer I purchased from a gl4x4 member for my 4 seat project. My plan is to take all the cool stuff engine ,trans, axles etc from the s10 and put on the blazer and build a all tube frame.




Removed frame, it was easy really no rust to speak of



Gutted the interior with the help of my 5 year old



Cut the entire floor and some fire wall out, set some junk I had laying around in spot till I transfer everything over I don't want to take apart the s10 till I can get it done in a quick time so I don't miss out on any wheeling this summer



Cut the roof off a bit behind the doors for a cool look

I got alot done this weekend , I'm not too sure if the tubes over the rear axle are correct trying to keep them spaced apart for the rear winch, low enough so the rear passengers don't have there heads over the roof and high enough for the suspension links to clear
