Default blazer/jimmy sas build 2.2

project plan is to take a two door blazer do a sas put with narrow axles. Trying to keep it low and capable. planning to run 35-38" tires

Parts to be utilized consist of:
two door blazer/jimmy
5 speed maual
np231/d300 doubler
waggy 44 front with chevy flat top knuckles for highsteer
toyota rear

basically im going to start small and build bigger as $ allows, stuff breaks, or figure out what will work better.

Would like to have the front linked, a flat belly, and exo cage to keep the body straight enough for the doors to open and shut. Going to have the axles locked and have chromos in the front atleast eventually. also wouldnt mind getting the heat and ac to work but thats at the end of the list of stuff to get working. Once i get this phase done and the bugs worked out im going to wheel it and figure outwhat to do from there. Im looking to join a relatives and friends in their wheeling trips to canada, R&V, Badlands, Twisted trails, and local trails.

This build is inspired from some of the things i learned from my 4door build that i scrapped/parted out.

Default what i started with

heres the start of the build/the first things i brought home.

First was a 1994 Gmc Jimmy that i bought of a fellow member for $500

it consists of a a running tbi vortec 4.3l manual 5speed and np231 tcase.




Since the body was rotted beyond repairing i set out to find a new one and came across this 88 body that the previous owner was trying to build into a mini slammed rig.




and the van full of extra parts that came with it.

Default started tearing the 94 apart





suprisingly the frame was mostly intact




once the 94 body was removed i continued/ started modifying the 88 body where the previous owner left off. the goal was to get the fuel tanked raised, get shifter holes cut for 4wd and manual trans, and get ready for wheel well modifying.



Body mocked onto frame and installed a 1.25" aluminum puck body lift in attempt to make room for my plans to flat belly its underside.

As of right now ive got the 88 tub bolted down, dash mostly back in, and a standalone harness ordered to run the vortec tbi stuff since i dont want to take the time to frigure out how to make my own out of the factory harnesses.

oh and have collected the d300 and rear toyota axle, still trying to obtain a waggy 44 front though.
