where is the XTREME?

i have been half looking for an xtreme blazer for a few months now, and i cant seem to find any within a few hundred miles. i know that in ct they were special order for the most part, and i have no interest in a pickup.

i think those are such a sweet car and i would even settle for a 2 or 4dr 2wd blazer but those are even harder to come by in my area.

i just think that a 5/6 drop, 20's, stereo, tints on that car makes them basically my dream car. hell i'd even try to get a ls1 if it wasn't mechanically sound

anyone ever have one?

I love Xtreme's too. There's nothing particularly redeeming about them, other than that GM decided to make an old-school SUV pretty darn attractive in terms of appearance. They're a neat find when you get one in good shape. I disagree about dropping them though--I think the stock ride height is a good middle ground and I really like the OE wheels.

I've got an LS 2-door stripper Blazer. It's a fun little SUV. Never got around to doing any upgrades though.

Good luck. I've got an 04 Blazer Xtreme, I like it alot. I've got 20's on mine, wanting to give it a 2/3 drop, but also don't wanna have to replace the valence every other week, so I'm still debating. If only it had a v8 option from the factory

Here is a pic of mine before the wheels

That's exactly what I have. The only thing I do have is A/C. I don't even have the rear window wiper.
