Offroad Trailblazers and Envoys

Now 1/2 price, Jetttstream I6 silicone hoses: $50

Trailblazer and Envoy related, but not off-road related...

The market failed to support this loyal vendor. Now $50 instead of $120. I use 'em. Cheaper than OEM and bulletproof.

You do NOT want to blow a hose in 120 Death Valley heat, 50 miles from pavement.

WOW, at this price, I'm definately hitting these, and I don't even need them yet!

(plus, the non-black 07+ 5.3/SS ones are $20)

ETA: Just ordered a set! Thanks for the heads up, Bill!

Looks like these hoses go for about $30 a set on Rock Auto.

What is the benefit of the Jett ones? They are shiny?

The Jettt ones are Silicone hoses (the $30 set from Rockauto are like our OEM rubber ones)... Silicone hoses don't degrade like the stock rubber hoses do... For frame of reference, if you buy a 9C1 Caprice (cop car) from the early-mid 90's, when they came with silicone hoses (cop cars only), those hoses will still be good to go, today...

Whoa, for once procrastination pays off :)

I'm nearing 115,000 miles, this will be going on the short list soon! Note, I'm still not planning on any 120* trail rides though :friday:

I think he's only got 5 sets left. Never underestimate how cheap-ass the trailvoy community can be.

I've been contemplating a set... I've just spent a lot on $$ in the last cpl weeks on my TB, but might just have to snatch up a set.

It's a SAFETY improvement ... for her peace of mind. If not when she's in the vehicle, so she doesn't worry about YOU being alone on the trails. It's for HER!

You gotta think SPIN all the time for these mods, you know.... :idea:

Ahhh.... gotcha! :cheers: That is what I told when I got the BDS shocks and more lighting. Plus the tire carrier Neil is making for me is because I need more room in the back for work... ;) Haha. That I really do need tho.
