:lol: Here she is, yes I know it's beautiful. :)

Here's the sanded side...ready for primer.



I just bout this Jimmy for $550 for a winter beater. I already did stuff to it after the pics and I will have more pics to show a little progression. I plan on sanding it all down and painting it black with spray cans. :razz: I'll see how it turns out...if it looks real bad then I will paint it white because spraypainted white don't look as bad and you can't see it as well. Today I peeled off the ugly RED pinstrip and took off the mudflaps. It has 206,000 miles. :scared: It runs great...the motor was re-built 3 years ago. It's a 4.3 V6 and has a tow package. :nod:

I agree. If I were you I would buy some bedliner paint, or undercoating and paint your truck with it.

That or cover the whole thing with duct tape. That would be kinda cool.

Brother Bought a blazer for 50 bucks. It got 213k miles on it. Right now the dents are getting taking out and then ready for a nice candy red paint job :tup: . ill post before and after pics


Looks Tired Tho. Spend 300 bucks and get a pos mako job and it will last for 2 or 3 years because if you paint it ( not sayiing your bad) isn't going to last long at all

Yes it is 4wd as you can see here:


It has a 3" body lift now which I will take off when I put the 6" suspention on and some 35" tires. :hey:

I just put my 240,000th mile on my Z71. That Blazer is well worth $500. Fix it up then resell it cuz 6" lifts are a good $1300.

It's dirty here.

Here it is clean and before my new exhaust.

I got a used BDS lift lined up for $700 :tup: Nice truck Slithers. That goes to show that GM makes the longest lasting trucks on the road. :nod: :lol: I like the Ford ad when they brag about the truck lasting 120,000 miles...lol, that's just broken in for a Chevy. :smooch:
