Just picked up my new daily driver. I got tired of being pelted by rain on the Suzuki, especially since it rained all week long. Picked it up for a steal. $400, and then about $200 in parts. Still a few things need to be fixed, but that'll come. On to the showcase.

















As it is, it's just my daily driver when it's not nice enough to ride my bike, or when I have to haul people/things. But I do have goals and this is kind of my showcase/build up thread. I have ideas of what I want to do, as well as a repair list.

Repair List!
Fix Four Wheel Drive.
Fix Front Speakers.
New Headliner.
Fix Rust Holes in Rear Quarters/Doglegs and Front bottom door.
Paint over fixed rust holes

Enjoyable(to me) DD
Drop it.
Tint the Windows
Paint it.
Paint Old Wheels/Possible New Wheels.
Possible Engine Transplant. (Vortech V6?)

It's definitely not the perfect vehicle as it stands, but the engine's been rebuilt, and it was definitely worth the price.

why would you drop a 4x4? thats the most retarded thing
Because I don't plan on ever using the 4-Wheel Drive. I'm only fixing the 4 wheel drive because it'll bother me otherwise.

The criticism is appreciated, though.

If your not gonna use it then why fix it? IMO dropping it will look dumb just drive it.

Not what i would call a dependable daily drive but whatever you like. I would lift it, but knobby tires on it and off road the shit outta it. Smash into trees and such. Prolly end up leaving it in a creek somewhere. lol

Nice i hate the 2.8 tho they normally have tons of problems. I had a 91 blazer 4X4 with the 4.3 vortec it was a great 1K beater with 224K. It still runs and i see it everywhere. I miss that thing.

Jumping it has been the best suggestion so far :wink:

Also, it will not rape any civics. It takes me an hour to get up to highway speeds. Electric cars put bus lengths between me and them.

Painted the grill and rear spoiler today, and painted over the rust areas, just until I can take some time to fix them. Laziness for the win. It's lookin' nice.

..Besides all the rust.
