lol, that would have been funny but i'm not talented enough to put together something like this i'm probably going to get new black door panels for it and the black tail/headlights and clear signals on my other blazer are going on this one. i also ordered a chrome/gunmetal grille to replace that billet grille, hopefully i'll have new pics ready to roll week after next.

interior pics...rhinolinered/stainless dash, autometer phantom gauges, the lights are indicators for headlights, brights, low rad coolant, low brake fluid, etc.

Good idea putting the head unit on the wrong side of the car.

When the gasopacolypse comes and your stuck in a gas line, your gonna wish you had something!

Kinda like my only cup holder being on the passenger door... Of a near 7 foot wide car.

Burnout pics and video are a must. And I mean it.

I think you should spray that billet grille black so you can swap the grilles out and change the look. I personally like the billet grille (especially if it were black) better than the new one you are getting, but im sure it will still look great! Do your thing man!

That stainless gauge panel needs a serious re-working, and how are you even supposed to tell which LED goes to what, so if your low rad. light comes on, how are you going to know that's the light that's on?

The LED's aren't even straight, just kind of wandering around on it and the panel itself looks like it overlaps on the driver side top of the dash. I don't know if you bought it like that or if you did it, but I don't like it.

I however do like the engine, but it needs more 6 speed.

i'm not sure how his indicator lights work yet, he's drawn up the wiring and stuff for me, and i certainly didn't put together the stainless dash lol...i would never have even come up with anything like that...it may look better than those pics do it justice, but he took those pics, not me. i definitely want to replace that steering wheel with a grant black gtII steering wheel. as far as a 6 speed? that wouldn't work out well, it's got traction issues w/ the auto.

(ps, if it isn't obivous...i didn't buy the truck for the dash =P )

Well I didn't think you did, I would hope not anyway.

And if you got traction issues, you need a better tire, and possibly wider than what it has. What size does it have anyway? Looks like it might have 275/50R15's, or are they 295's?

That thing is definitely killer and I want it.
