Jeep Trailblazer SS

I scored a wrecked 2006 Trailblazer SS that i traded my 1968 Chevy C10 for. I also bought a 1968 jeep Wagoneer with 36,000 miles on it. The plan is to cut the floor pans and fire walls out of both vehicles and swap the jeep shell onto the trailblazer, retaining the dash and interior of the trailblazer.

Re: Jeep Trailblazer SS

I followed the link from you C10 build... sucks the truck is sold/traded, but man, I love the old Wagoneers! There's a bunch on the road here still.

What's the wheel base on both... any tweaking needed?

I picked up a 68 Firebird I couldn't pass up, but i can't touch it until my shop is built... hope to start sept/oct.

Re: Jeep Trailblazer SS

The jeep wheelbase is 110 inches. The trailblazer is 113 inches. All of the other dimensions are within an inch. There's more headroom in the wagoneer, but the dashboard is about 10 inches shorter than the trailblazer dash. The real trouble will be trying to get as much of the dash and firewall components to fit the jeep body.

Re: Jeep Trailblazer SS

You should move this to the alternative tinkering forum. You will get a ton of views and followers there. Ive been on this board forever and this is the first time Ive ever been in this area. Pure fluke I found it.

Looks like its going go be an interesting build
