This truck is serious. Seriously powerful, seriously capable, and
seriously good looking. You can drive it uptown where it will turn
heads or drive it out into the middle of nowhere to clear yours.
Read through the basics presented here, then come on down to get
the rest of the story and check it out for yourself.
Describing this truck from the top down seems like describing the
icing on a cake first. It has received a frame off restoration, and
the best stuff is on the inside, but the icing is what you see
first. So... how about that Protronic Blue paint? It is actually a
BMW color but looks totally awesome on this Blazer. It seems to be
saying go big or go home as it flows up and over the cowl induction
hood and highlights the body crease that is at eye level now
because of the lift kit. The front end has been converted to 1985
style sheet metal with LMC parts that includes new doors, and a
billet grill leads the way. Everything is new from the bumpers and
trim to the glass and the mirrors. The removable hardtop makes for
some nice open air 4-wheeling while keeping any water from rain or
splashing through the creeks from getting the driver and passenger
Open the door and you will find an interior that is both simple and
sophisticated with LMC supplying many of the parts. The door panel
looks like it would on any street-oriented Blazer. The armrest is
comfortable for cruising down the road, but if you hit the dirt,
you may want to be hanging onto it, or the steering wheel pretty
tight. If you plan to get really serious, you may even want to
round up a 5-point harness system that those leather wrapped off
road seats are set up for. A 4-spoke leather wrapped steering wheel
sits in front of a metal overlaid dash with the tach and speedo in
the center and Dakota digital gauges for water temp, fuel, oil
pressure and voltage gauges clearly visible off to the left. There
is a Winters gated shifter for the tricked out automatic
transmission set in the floor right next to the shifter for the
transfer case. Fresh black carpet has recently been added on top of
the Raptor liner that is color matched to the truck and coats the
rest of the interior for good looks and easy maintenance. Cold
Vintage Air A/C has just been installed on this beauty as well!
Ok, lots of good stuff in the engine and drivetrain to cover here.
Call one of our sales people or come down to get complete details
and check it out for yourself. There is a 454 cubic inch HO crate
engine under that cowl induction hood which is running a Procharger
D1SC supercharger. The consignor claims it is putting out just
north of 700HP at the crank. It is blowing through a new Holley
fuel injection, runs MSD ignition, and exhausts through Doug's tri
Y headers and Magnaflow stainless exhaust and mufflers. An aluminum
radiator with electric fans keeps things running cool. Power flows
back through a 4L80 automatic trans (270 miles on new build) and
the axles set up with 4.11 gears. The rear is a 14-bolt full
floating setup with a Yukon locker. A BDS lift kit raises things up
4" and uses Fox 2.0 shocks and Crossover steering to keep things
under control. Stainless steel brake lines are tough and keep the
pressure on while EBC Yellowstuff brake pads clamp the front
rotors. 20" RBP wheels get to power on the ground through General
Grabber tires and look good while doing it. (Inquire for a spec
sheet of this build)
Seriously powerful, capable, and good looking. Come on down and
check this truck out. This one could be yours. Seriously.
