Just pulled in the driveway and parked the new Blazer. Had fun going through Memphis then down to Tupelo, MS to pick the K5 up then headed to Nashville for the day and night then home bound on Sunday. Sunday was a long drive in a truck I wasn't familiar with but it ran good. Max speed was 80 comfortably and horsepower wise or that 700R4 would have to keep downshifting to please my demand for power.
So I didn't realize how bad the interior was, its not so good. Dash pad is cracked, sliced and butchered. It appears they were trying to replace the speakers maybe since those are the only areas that are hacked. So new dash pad is required. Driver side seat back support is broke so you have a gangster lean to the right if you want to or not. So new seats are needed. Nothing else major except I want to change the wine color to all black which means a complete replacement of the interior which is going to be hell and expensive but look bad ass. Maybe even use billet for accents.
On the exterior all I see is the paint job is crap so I'll remove the moldings and stickers from the windows. Probably get a decent paint job at Maaco since most body shops don't want to touch it but either way I'm leaning on keeping it white.
Right off the start I need shocks and 33's balanced.
My goal is to change them to 3/4 ton or 1 ton axles (roughly $3100 for front G2 D44 with eaton e-locker and another $3400 for back G2 D44 with eaton e-locker)
Also I am not sure if I should keep the interior the red wine color (which is cool because no one does unique colors for interiors anymore) or change the interior to all black. It desperately needs a paint job (not decided color... leaning towards blue like my cutlass but considering keeping the original white)
Once interior is done and then the paint job is done then I'll start looking at suspension lift, possible a new engine like this monster
