    04 xtreme bagged on 22's and stock a/c

    long post here but this is a 04 blazer i did for a good friend of mine. he got it off the show room floor new and has taken overly good care of her. when i got it it was at 64k on the clock. lots of stuff was in the plans and more got added along the way lol. it was a year long project due to me moving into a new shop. and it had to sit for a little. the lease got cut short on my old shop due to someone else getting out of the lease early. this was finished back in oct and was at dropem wear show finished in oct. just now got around to getting all the photos loaded up. i have over 300 but wont post them all lol. he wanted to to look just like my white blazer and he turned out better ha ha. so were we go.

    when i got it.



    stripped and on the frame table



    front taken apart



    inside was gutted





    the MMW ares were set in and started getting the front fitted



    started the fit the wheels



    mocked up the sunk in shocks

    tight fit but they clear



    made some safety drop down bars. they sit 1/2" below the xtreme side skirts in the rear to keep them from getting hit



    stock gas tank member welded in to use all the stock mounting hardware



    upper shock tabs and upper bag mounts. that primer makes it look like crap lol





    frame painted

    like and rear end installed





    on the MMW arms he had the tabs on the bottom of the arm. in no way i could bet any turning out of this thing. ended up cutting them off and mounting them on top. now it turns till it tire hits the frame and much better.



    built my own sway bar end links.



    front painted



    ran all new fuel and brake lines because the old ones were rusted and i didnt want to extend them with a joint. i have a fancy hyd flare tool that dose gm fuel fittings
