This is a 2000 Chevy Blazer ZR2. First the bad stuff. Most importantly this has been totaled by the insurance company and has a salvage certificate. It is rebuildable. The damage is cosmetic. After the accident I drove this home 500 miles towing 2 Harleys in a trailer. It drove fine. It will need a hood, bumper, plastic air dam, grill, and passenger side headlight and turn signal assembly. The passenger side fender could be fixed or replaced. The truck will need lower front quarter panels patched. It also has a large rust bubble in the paint under the passenger side quarter window, and needs some attention to the rear quarter where the spare tire carrier attaches. I have tried to show all this in the pictures. Also the driver side door lock does not work, and the CD player in the radio also does not function. Radio illumination also does not work properly. Of course it will need paint. Now the good stuff for those still reading. I have done a tremendous amount of work on this Blazer over the past few years. The brake rotors and pads, ball joints, wheel hubs, idler arm all have been replaced within the last 3000 miles. The front tires are brand new and the rears are still at 75%. They are Goodyear Wranglers. The spare tire is an off brand and brand new. The truck was aligned 1000 miles ago. The rear brake calipers and 90% of the brake lines (both the steel and rubber lines) have been replaced and within that same 1000 miles. Also about 1500 miles ago I had the transmission completely rebuilt and the transfer case gone thru. The transmission rebuild included all new steels and frictions, seals, bushings, an upgraded drum, sprag, shift kit, new shift solenoids, new internal wiring harness, new Corvette accumulator pistons (both of them) and a brand new torque convertor. The engine blew up 1000 miles ago, so I found one out of a wrecked Blazer with only 61,000 miles on it. I tore it down to check it all out. The Cylinders, pistons, and bearings all looked great. I gave it new head and intake gaskets, cleaned the water passages between the block and heads, new head bolts, and put it in with as many if the low milage components as possible. It has new MAF sensor, new knock sensor, 3 new O2 sensors, brand new starter , brand new air conditioning compressor, new AC lines, evaporator core, and condensors, new thermostat, new radiator hoses (I modified the lower and added a spring to prevent it being sucked shut), and new cooling line fittings on the radiator. It has an auxillary transmission cooler, and the stock power steering cooler is rusted and has been bypassed. I just never got around to putting a new one on it. The truck also has a brand new complete exhaustexhaust, from manifolds to tail pipe, with a Thrush welded muffler. It’s sounds good for a V6. The batter is 2 years old.
