Wow... that was a sh*tload of work. Looks like they just dropped an XJ body on a blazer... Why??? Would be fun to drive I bet though.

I would really like to see some close up pics before I passed judgement. The front "body lift"/ radiator core support?? leads me to believe that the craftsmanship is sub-par and a little scary to be honest. I'm not a fan of the XJ transplant onto a frame idea as a whole, however I do like when a project is done properly and is original (not that this particular XJ posesses either of these qualities).

If it were properly built I bet it would be alot of fun and fairly unstoppable.



Edit: Upon looking back at the pictures again I have one more comment- That roof rack is useless with the bottom of the doors being tree feet off of the ground.

Complete with the upgraded push/pull steering!




Whats up with the link on top of the rear diff? Some type of antiwrap bar?

The axle part might serve as a truss but the link, I'm assuming it's for anti-wrap... did you see the size of those blocks in the rear?

There's one of those, just down the street from my parents house, that someone has been trying to sell for the past decade.

1. Control arms look awfully small
2. Tires look like over sized lawn mower tires
3. Front leaf springs
4. The radiator thing in the front looks dumb
5. Massive roof rack
6. Chevy? come on now

Other than that it's ok I guess...
