    1999 Chevy Blazer ZR2

    I've waited til I accumulated almost all of the parts before making this build log.

    This is my 1999 Chevy Blazer ZR2:



    I got it right around 2 months ago, and have been slowly accumulating audio parts for it. I took care of the important things first (fluid flushes, new hoses, new filters, oil change, fix rear differential leak, etc) so it took a bit longer than expected. The truck itself has a 2" shackle drop and nearly as much torsion bar crank and 31" Cooper STTs. I haven't had the time to take her off-road yet, but that's going to change very soon .

    The equipment list is as follows:
    • Sundown SAX 100.2
    • Sundown SAE-1000D
    • SSA Icon 15D2
    • Polk MOMO 6.5" Components
    • Alpine CDA-9811 (Soon to be upgraded)
    • Kicker 0 ga. Hyperflex, 16 ga. speaker wire, K-series interconnects, battery terminals
    • Optima Yellowtop
    • 125 sq.ft RAAMmat
    • 4 yards Ensolite
    Pics of equip:





    (Apparently I never took pics of the headunit or subwoofer...so I'll add those once I get the speakers on Saturday.)

    The box for the sub will hopefully be built in the next few days. It's going to be 4 ft^3 @ 30hz. Sound deadening starts tomorrow, but I got a call from the vet with my dog's blood work-up and it's not good; he has to be put down tomorrow so I don't know how far I'm going to get.

    Truck looks great on the lift. How are the Cooper tires treating you? I heard they were very good for the money.

    The ride is a bit stiff, but I'm guessing that's more the shackle drop and the torsion bar crank than the tires. They're rather aggressive tires, look great...I'll be getting them again when I need new tires. Like I mentioned in the first post, I haven't been off-road with it yet, but they held their own in the snow. Overall, I'm happy with them.

    Re: 1999 Chevy Blazer ZR2

    Alright, I snapped some pics of the ICON and the headunit. I haven't gotten too much in the way of progress of sound deadening as I'm caught at yet another snag. One of the torx bolts for the seat belt on the driver side was already stripped...and I found a LOC hanging off one of the rear speakers as well as the RCAs and a REM wire...

    ICON



    Alpine CDA-9811, currently in my beater while the ZR2 is sidelined


    And the problems/progress thus far:






    My buddy's bringing over a pair of huge vice grips which should be enough to get the torx bit out. If not, I'll drill it out and tap a new hole. I'll be working all through the night and morning trying to get this done before my dad gets back home from Ohio.

    My 'peakers showed up today



    (Yes, I am going to be running them passive.)

    I've got the floor and the walls deadened and ensolite'd. I plan on having the door pins and bushings replaced before putting in the speakers as they have to take the doors off anyway. I'll be running RCAs and power wire tomorrow/Monday and most likely building the box Monday as well.

    Re: 1999 Chevy Blazer ZR2

    Well I got the box built, and I'm happy with it 3.7 ft^3 @ 30 hz.




    I used the dupli-color truck bed liner and I'm thoroughly disappointed. It didn't cover well at all...flat black paint would have been just as good. The Blazer is in the shop right now getting the doors fixed...I'll snap a few pics of the install and the box fully painted later on tonight or tomorrow.
