    4x4 vs. 2x4 fenders

    I always hear everyone saying they put 4x4 fenders on their blazers. Is there any difference between the two?

    every s-series fender will interchange with its specific body style. There are a few variances in the fenders during the years of production though.

    1st gen 4x4 fenders have holes for the emblems... 2wd fenders have no holes from emblems... other then that there is absolutely no difference....

    2nd gens are same throughout all years unless they are zr5 fenders then they use different exterior styling for the fender flares, more or less look like hombre body lines and a ton of holes for flare mounting..

    My 1st gen with factory fenders have no holes. Hmmm. I'm thinking maybe 90ish and below had holes and 91 up no holes?

    mine had the "tahoe" emblems though. It could have been a package option. Maybe base models didnt get them
