Mine is close right now, but if you did a little cutting it will work just fine.

I love the full tops, but hat the newer front clips in them. I got goose bumps while looking at these pics. I want another Blazer!

Re: 2wd k5 Blazers

Travis,

If you old rear wheels would have had 4.5" of back space, do you think the fender would not have been rolled?? I am looking at going with your old set-up. That is why I ask.

Re: 2wd k5 Blazers

Probably something mild. Right now the rear already sits an inch lower that the front. So I was thinking 3" spindles up front and 2" shackles out back. With the 275/60's out back that would give it a small rake.

Re: 2wd k5 Blazers

My Blazer has 18x10's in the back with 5" backspacing on a 6" drop and I probably have around 3/4" clearance on each side of the tire. This is with 305/45/18s

Re: 2wd k5 Blazers

Thanks Travis. I removed the window tint and will two tone the blazer. Same color on the top but silver from just below the windows all the way down. Then new 20" wheels once the Boss 338's (i think) are remade to just bolt right on.

Re: 2wd k5 Blazers

No i didn't (thank u for asking) Life just always seem to get in the way. The rest of the time the trucks were to far away or to high price for what they were offering. I did end up buying a 1960 chevy bel air two door for my birthday last year. It is a long term project though. i was hoping to find a blazer to take on the power tour this year but it just is not playing in my favor.

Re: 2wd k5 Blazers

Man all these sweet pics have me wanting another one bad. I haven't owned a 2wd blazer since the mid 90's and now I am really feeling the urge. Thanks for the inspiration guys and hopefully soon I can add a contribution to this thread.
