Default 77' blazer "clod body" by southern builds

This build is my idea of a trail rig I would want in 1:1

parts list
tekin fxr and 35t motor
savox sa-1231
clod body
rc4wd scale k44 axles
rc4wd leaf springs
rc4wd hammer transfer case
rc4wd R3 Scale 2 speed trans
rc4wd ultra scale drive shafts
integy scale winch (more for the scale look)
a lot of 3/16 sold steel rod

tires will be 1.9 the rock beast
undecided on wheels its either the RC4WD Mickey Thompson Classic Lock, Mayhem trail ready

now for some pics

this is about the ride height I want tires are just to help with mock up

frame is made trans is mounted and set the transfer case up for O/D U/D and off set it with 2 5mm 17t pinions to help with driveshaft angles not sure how it will holdup seen it done on here figured I give it a try


shorten the body to fit the 11 3/8 wheelbase I wanted (I know the blazers are shorter) but from my Tamiya jeep build I know shorter sucks

...Another awesome Chevy build that's going to put mine to shame...Really!? That's off to an awesome start for sure. Between the two of us I think we're going to run the farm stores outta 3/16 rod ; ) lol. I love the old Chevy builds. I could look at them all day.

Body looks great, chassis is definitely not hard to look at either. Nice job so far.

I got some parts in this week so I made some time to work on the blazer

and picked some wheels from a member on here still need to get the pitbull rock beast most places are out of stock so put the swampers on them for now

I decided to cut out a spot in the floor/frame so I can put a full size spare in standing up and I will be making a tire mount for it to stand up and off to the side

there you go Miko





I picked up a 3D printed grill off ebay to save me some time and cut out for light buckets but didn't like that it was flat


so I cut the ends off and added to it


im not done but its a start

Nice Grill!

I need to make one for my 74 GMC Drift Dually. Are you going to convert the fenders to the older style? I've got that done, along with extending the nose of the hood as well. but need to work on the grill.

Here's a pic side-by-side with the stock clod shell

yes I am going to extend the hood the fenders maybe it all depends on how much of it is left after I cut to fit the tires the ones that are on it are a little taller then what I will be using

Spare tire cut out looks spot on!

Now hurry up and get the shock mounts done so I can lift each corner up and set it back down for hours

I have some time and parts now that there back in stock. so I started with putting the pitbulls on the wheels and was going to use these rings but didn't look right so back to the simple rings for now.


next was to add scale bolts after a few hours and a 1-64 tap and nice ARB diff covers


next to be done was shackles and shock mounts




the front bumper so many ways to go but im not a stinger guy and I wanted to see the winch some but didn't want it to be the only thing you see in pics so this is the end result



and the rear bumper im not sure if I like it or not let me know what you think should I leave it, add to it or cut and start over

the thin rings and irok tires looked the best too me. the pitbulls kinda ruin the super scale look you had going imo.

For a Super scale look you would be running some 4 inch tires . The pits are at least smaller looking and help it away from the monster truck look

I drool on it everytime I hold it in my hands. This needs to be prioritized. My mental psyche can't handle this wait
