    Jimmy to Blazer front end swap __

    Okay, i just got a 00 Jimmy 2 weeks ago, i was looking at getting an xtreme blazer, but i was having a hard enough time finding a 2 door blazer at all, so I just got this. I really like the chevy front end, with the seperate headlight and turn signal, compared to just one piece. Can I switch to the chevy front end easily? I searched but couldnt find much on it, has it been covered elsewhere? Thanks

    Here's a pic of my Jimmy, completely stock, but that will soon be changed

    Is that a 4x4 Jimmy? Kinda funny...most people want the Jimmy look cuz it's better than the Chevy look..lol

    Do you live in Canada or the US..cuz in Canada we don't have the Blaz Xs, but there's lots in the states.

    yea I kinda like the way that looks. But its not custom that way, hehe. I also like the older jimmy front end with the narrow headlights, but I'm a lazy bum.
    Why 2 door? Wheres the 4 door love?
    is that moonroof? I'm jealous.

    Its a 2 door Jimmy. I really like the chevy look, dont know why, i just dont like the GMC style. I live in the US. When I was looking for a blazer x, a couple of weeks ago, i could not find 1 on ebay or on autotrader, and i wanted one that was fairly cheap, so i could have more money for mods.
    I like the way the 2 doors looked over the 4 doors, i am planning on lowering mine(bags, MAYBE) and i think 2 doors look better bagged on 20s than 4 doors
    yes it is a sunroof, but my dumbass friend broke it(long story) but it is getting fixed, and he is paying for it

    ok to answer his questions. you just need a s10 bumper, lower valance, grill parking lights and headlights. you should be set with the s10 front end. :) :bigthumb:

    ya i personaly like the jimmy looks beter. i hate those lights one the newer jimmies! its just that lower yellow part i HATE.
    i was thinking about a sunroof BUT i heard that with a sub roof you get lower SPL numbers. and im going more stereo than anything!!!!!! so im keepen out the sunroof. but i can still do ALOT of more mods. im not sure what to do next. either shave doors handles, or maybe start buying the ground effect kit piece by piece starting off with the front bumper and moving my way back.

    So is it a 2wheel drive or 4 wheel drive? It looks really high for a 2wd Jimmy. My '98 4x4 4dr sits WAY lower stock.

    thanks, thats what i thought but just wanted to make sure

    Yeah, sunroof will lower your SPL scores a bit, but I dont plan on being a huge competitor, but i do plan on having a huge system.

    Its a 2 wheel drive. I thought it sat kind of high too, but im not sure, but i should be grateful, last weekend i was over a girls house and i left around 4 and had my lights off, and i was driving across a yard to get to a street cause its easier to get out of her neighborhood that way, and i didnt really look where i was going, and fucking climbed a big ass rock, i backed up off of it and checked out the car, perfectly fine, any lower and i wouldve ripped that plastic valence clean off
