THE HEARTBEAT OF AMERICA

Give an enthusiast a Jeep, and they'll off-road. Give an enthusiast a K5 Blazer, and they'll off-road with their friends and great comfort!

Introduced as a competitor to the Ford Bronco and International Scout, Chevrolet's awesome K5 Blazer attempted to bring a little luxury to a market invented by Jeep. By offering buyers more room, conveniences like air conditioning, and even a sleek 2-wheel drive model, the Blazer easily became the segment's sales superstar. And by the time this 1989 K5 rolled of the line, the bowtie brand had pretty much perfected the formula of producing tough, world-class off-roaders. The product of a professional, six-figure build that was completed in April of 2021, this exceptional Blazer floats slick black and charcoal two-stage across Chevrolet's traditional two-tone scheme for an appearance that's both fresh and indelible.

At the front of that pigment, a sleek tube bumper guards a tough Warn 16.5 winch between a Factor 55 Hawse fairlead and bright amber parking lamps. Those lamps join KC LED headlights in a 1974 Chevrolet grille, which centers a familiar gold bowtie inside a slick, satin black frame. That grille leads a 1974 Chevrolet hood, which caps 1974 Chevrolet fenders that stack LED markers in front of 4-inch stretch wheel openings. Muted, 1974 K5 Blazer badging leads a vented greenhouse that's reflected in satin black mirrors and sealed in satin black frames. A delightfully traditional KC Hilites Gravity Pro6 light bar complements traditional factory door handles. Satin black lock cylinders and a trick Holley fuel cap split the difference between custom Rock Sliders, a tight Softopper and 4-inch stretch quarters. And at the back of the truck, a "CHEVROLET" stamped tailgate shades a second tube bumper and a frame-mount hitch between crisp LED taillights.

LS STROKER

Enact this Chevy's All American Billet hood supports and you'll find 408 cubic inches of stroked LS small block that, thanks to the pros at Kannapolis, North Carolina's Prestige Motorsports, twists an impressive 547 horsepower into 519 lb./ft. of terrain conquering torque! At the top of the $23K six liter, a conical filter element feeds a coated tube, which fronts an electronic throttle body. That body feeds a FAST LSXr 102 intake that's wired with both FAST fuel rails and a custom Nitrous Outlet Vapor Crossover. That intake feeds hot, LS3-spec 821 heads, which balance a billet oil cap over fully upgraded internals. Quality Granatelli Motor Sports plug wires split stainless shorty headers. A color-keyed Billet Specialties Tru Trac serpentine drive spins a familiar ATI Super Damper beneath a polished alternator, a polished A/C compressor and a reliable Edelbrock water pump. The big engine's cooling is provided by a custom mounted Frostbite radiator, which hangs dual electric puller fans between a beefy Derale steering cooler and a beefy Derale transmission cooler. Plenty of juice is provided by dual Optima batteries, which ride a Genesis Dual Battery Kit. Naturally, ancillaries are top notch, all the way from the truck's custom shock tower brace to the street-tuned mill's Meziere Enterprises starter and deep Moroso oil pan. And everything rides well between a Line-X covered firewall and custom inner fenders.

CAPABILITY REDEFINED

Under this rig, extensive upgrades kick off with a blasted and powder-coated frame that traces solid, Line-X coated floor pans. The stroked LS funnels power through a smooth 4L80E 4-speed that, sourced directly from Jake's Performance, pairs billet internals with a tough Yank Performance Pro Truck triple-disc converter. Those shifts push a full float 14-bolt pumpkin that, sourced from a 2012 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, features a Detroit Locker, proven Yukon gears and Branik Motorsports axles. Opposite that kit, a one ton-spec Dana 60 is finished with a second Detroit Locker, RCV shafts, Yukon hubs and more Yukon gears. The 14-bolt works well with the Dana 60 thanks to a requisite NP205 transfer case that's been paired with an Offroad Design Magnum Planetary Underdrive. Speaking of Offroad Design, Offroad Design chassis hardware makes the most of 4-link front and rear suspensions that are strung between Eibach coils, Fox shocks and RockJock Antirock sway bars. Those bones, tweaked by a RideController Electronic Management System, create a comfortable 82-inch total ride height that provides a low center of gravity while clearing common garages. A full PSC steering system incorporates full hydro assist. A Wilwood master cylinder joins a Wilwood proportioning valve to push fluid to a quartet of vented discs. A steady flow of fuel stays constant thanks to a lightweight Boyd Welding tank, easy Brown and Miller hoses and a custom rock shield. Exhaust flows from coated pipes to small Kooks GREENCATS and throaty MagnaFlow mufflers that have been carefully tucked into the truck's chassis. And at the edges of the floor, Method Race Wheels spin custom Granite Crystal Metallic powder coat inside 37x13.50R17LT BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain T/As.

RUGGED OPULENCE

When you step up to this level, trucks are all about combining the best elements of comfort and utility. That's why it's so refreshing to hop in the cab of this purposeful but nicely appointed K5! The stars of the show are sculpted PRP buckets that wrap custom-stitched Relicate plaid in red, four-point harnesses. In front of those thrones, a massaged TMI dash, stitched up by Lexington, North Carolina's Trimmers Trim Shop, hangs crisp Holley EFI telemetry next to Vintage Air conditioning and JL Audio MediaMaster audio. A custom console props a Mod Armor-mounted iPad, wired directly to the truck's RideController system, in front of JB Fabrication transfer case controls and a Winters Sidewinder Shifter. Line-X coated floors roll fade-free carpet toward factory-style side panels, which float switches for power windows and power door locks between fresh JL Audio speakers. The driver spins a Momo Mod 69 steering wheel around a tilting Ididit column. And everyone stays safe thanks to a 6-point roll cage.

Professionally built and meticulously upgraded, this sweet Chevy Blazer is both cool and exclusive! Wrapping proven LS power in charming style and serious off-road prowess, it's a timeless American icon that's ready to own the trail or steal the show.
