Hey guys never thought id be able to run into one of these dream cars so early but as fate would have it here i am!

(ive attached a pic of my blazer on the way to the dealer)


anyways it couldnt of worked out any better and i was truly destined for this vehicle...


i picked the car out of ohio and it has a good bit of mods done so far... i havent had time to look into them all so give me time on the updates and pictures!

anyways great to be a part of this community and be able to own a TRUE BEAST


im loving the site and already got my eye on several upgrades.. im sure ill be asking for suggestions down the road.... first project is all new projection halos and euro smoked tails as well as matching the front window tint


lastly im from western PA right east of Pittsburgh.... love to hear from or know if there are many local srt8 owners out there!

JEEP

thanks guys... cant wait to contribute!


i SHOULD have a few decent pics up in my garage right now (was able to get a few in first pa snow) feel free to check em out..

in my effortless attempt to get the trailblazer in tiptop shape for trade in ... i had firestone rotate the tires 1 week prior..... 4 lose lugnutz 2 sheared off...


to top it off i pull my jeep in after they put new brumbos on for me at the shop and could turn two lug nuts by hand on back driver!!


lesson learned: always take torque wrench with you to auto shops!!!

Haha, yeah I know the owner. I just put those hid's in it about 3 months ago.. The springs were put in the same night as well, they are eibach springs. Here is a pic of your new jeep with plastidipped wheels and moldings.

the wheels and chrome accents are actually still covered... however plastidip around windows is beginning major peeling.... thats actually project number 2 haha ... . wheels r still looking great not even a scratch ive seen in the dip which i know is the concern...

i think the only thing i know for sure they took out where the subwoofers... which is unfortunate my custom box from my blazer is too big for the back! . .. commence project # 3......! haha

No problem.. That's about it, the truck was always babied, it was actually his wife's truck so he didn't get to crazy with it. I think they just got sick of the gas mileage, lol. It's never even had a tune in it yet.
