I've got a couple of Chevy Blazers (2000) that I'm looking at right now on CL. Both are 2 door 4X4, pretty much exactly what I want.

Have anything for a ZR2 by chance? I'm looking for the rear swing arm for the spare tire and the front passenger wheel moulding. The one I bought are missing these items sadly.

The main flare or the bumper extension? I think I have the bumper extensions somewhere its pretty popular to take them off as they tend to get torn off by the tires off road.

Get used to replacing Ujoints the front driveshaft is standard Blazer. The rear driveshaft uses a standard Blazer at the transfer case and a GM full size truck ujoint at the diff.

A good set of shocks and these things will fly like a Raptor seriously one of the most fun ATVs you could have.

Leaky intake plenums are a problem solved for a little while by a 10 hour gasket replacement or resolved with a 6 hour Vortec V8 swap (add wiring for injector 3 and 6 and swap to fullsize truck PCM)

Car payments suck. I have 7 cars in the driveway and only owe 13 payments on that @ $322.50 a month. Once that is done and over with I will be a happy man.

It's a 2000 ZR2. They did come with those wheels and tires in 2000. Only thing is it doesn't have the decals on the side saying it.

So either it is one and the decals were removed, or it isn't and it's running the suspension and bodykit.

Check the RPO tag in the glove box. Its something you will want to know the ZR2 really is a different truck it shares much more in common with a full size than a standard s10.

The list of RPOs should read ZR2 somewhere also tell you the rear gear and tow package or not.

Yup, bottom left says ZR2, judging by the pic I took of the RPO sticker earlier.

That is true, haha. It seems that as some of us grow up and out of our Neons, there are more members to come in and take our places though so that's a good sign.
