Amazing Overland Chevy K5 Blazer!! No Expense Spared!!
This 1988 Chevy K5 Blazer is an amazing build. This is a special truck and it is not some hack job that someone put together. Thought went into everything that was done and this truck runs and drives down the highway at 75MPH with 1 hand on the wheel with ease. This truck is overbuilt and done right. There was countless hours of planning, labor, and much money invested. We don't have all of the receipts but we do have $30,000-$40,000 of receipts. This Blazer was built to be a very reliable and capable overland rig that could also be driven daily if desired.
This truck started out as a Rust Free from the Pacific Northwest and it looks to have most of its original paint except for the rockers because they were coated with lizard skin. The whole inside floors and the underside were coated with lizard skin and every seam was sealed. This is still a Rust Free Rig. True Frame Off Restoration. They also added new weatherstripping after lining the Blazer. A very cool addition is the aftermarket front winch bumper and rear tire carrier bumper. These are both HD Bumpers that are custom made.
The seats are original and in excellent shape, but they did add new carpet and sound deadener when the interior was removed. It also has a new dash pad, Vintage Air & Heat, CB radio, Stereo, all gauges work, all power windows work, rear window converted to manual and works, all lights and blinkers work.
The engine is a 2006 6.0 Liter LQ9 Vortec Maxx that had 58,000 miles on it when installed. They took the engine completely apart before installing and replaced the timing chain, harmonic balancer, added high volume oil pump, 145 Alt, HD Fan Clutch, LS Hooker manifolds,/headers, new throttle body, new mass airflow sensors and O2 sensors, new engine harness, and the list goes on and on. You get the picture. Transmission is a 2006 4L80E that was totally rebuilt to handle 575 Pounds of Torque. Transfer case is a 1986 NP205 all rebuilt with Twin-Stick. It also has an ORD Magnum Gearbox between. Outputs are 1410 all the way around. New Tom Woods Drive shafts w/ double cardan joints 1410. Rear Axle is AAM 10.5 Rebuilt 14 Bolt. Factory Disc Brakes all around and 4.10 gears with Limited Slip Differential. ORD greasable shackles. Front Axle is also 4.10 Gears and is from a 1986 (DANA 60).
