new project and an current one.

Post by BlackChevelleSS on Wed Jul 11, 2012 3:34 am

Well few months back I bought a 2002 S10 4x4 for cheap. Been fixing it up here and there.




Here it is currently, I drive it everyday now.
31" tires on zr5 wheels
3" suspension lift, 2" body
Black painted grille, with clear turn lenses and HID lights
New non rusted bed with rails and liner.
Heated power leather seats
and theres alot more ive done to it.




So since I originally wanted a ZR2 but couldnt afford it, I found one that has a blown up motor in it, its pretty much bone stock and I always wanted a v8 s10 so im doing a vortec 350 swap into it.
its a 2000 S10 ZR2 extended cab 5 speed
its pewter silver in color and needs alot of help that I will be giving it soon.

Nice project, and it looks like you are really getting into it. I have an '86 4X4 S-10, with the 2.8 V6 & 4-speed. It also has a 3" lift on it. I fixed it up a few years ago, with new fenders, doors, and all the cab corners & mounts etc. Likely spent twice as much on it as it's worth. ( why do we do that ?) Sad ..... Very Happy

Engine mount relocation brackets, You have to use these on a zr2 because there was no other engine option on a zr2 other than a 4.3l so GM decided to weld the frame mounts to the frame instead of bolt on ones on all other s10s. So Im stuck using the really crappy 4.3L mounts with a v8 which they are not strong enough for even a 4.3L
