Hey everyone,

I have a 2002 trailblazer LT 4x4 that I've been planning to build into an off road beast. Ive spent some time reading the material on this website to gain some understanding of what is needed to get a functional lift. My ultimate dream is to get my TB on leaf springs like the rock crawler builds, but thats on the back burner, for now.

I found a TB that is EXACTLY what i want my build to look like, the lift, wheel size and fitment, and bumper are spot on to what i am looking for. (File is attached for reference)

Are there any experts that can help me get the same fitment for my build? also, where i can get that bumper?

Thanks a bunch,

Mike Barton (MDB Fabrication) can supply the bumper kit - he's a regular contributor here. Check the vendor's section for MDB and more bumper info. for suspension. Did you check the build threads for a build write-up of that vehicle?

This is where the pic came from, Bartonmd's fab thread.
I don't know that I remember this truck.
That might be an old pic of Kyle's truck beside it.
I'm sure Mike or Kyle will chime in with more accurate info.
Looks like the guy is running a 3" body lift, I would guess he is likely also running a liftmeister 3" suspension lift with 1.5" wheel adapters with what I would venture are 285/70/17s on aftermarket wheels.
