Default My 2000 Olds Bravada AWD

Ok so here'* some quick pictures taken this morning with very little light. Sorry if some of them are alittle blurry. I'll get better ones (although might be alittle dirtier) tomorrow.





A parting shot with the B'ville in the background


The running boards will be taken off and put on the rafters in my garage until I've got kids big enough to actually climb into the vehicle on their own. Until then, they will stay up in the rafters. I really don't mind the look of the vehicle with them on, but it just doesn't look as mean.

Let me know what you think!

Ya know, I really want to puke whenever I see a Chavy Blazer but Olds really did a good job giving it a look of there own. More classy and upscale. Looks great!

my advise would be leave the boards on there, remember road rash.....its all eliminted with the boards on. My parents have GM boards on and you wouldnt believe how good the botton of the car looks, because my mom only drives the blazer in the winter. I would re think taking off the boards if it was me

Thanks all. Total out the door was $8766. A bit more than we wanted to pay, but I think this vehicle is well worth it. It has 72k miles on it.

I'll have to see how I feel about the boards once I drive it for a week or so. I just know that right now, they are majorly in my way when I go to get out of the vehicle (I keep calling it a vehicle because I don't know what to call it... it'* not a car or a truck... SUV just sounds wrong for some reason... LOL).

may I suggest a different tire....the uniroyals wear like steel but they get horrible traction.

Other than that nice ride dude!

I know what you mean. The tires have too much tread on them right now to warrant getting new tires. Possibly by next winter I'll have more money to purchase new ones to replace them. I had plans on putting some Dunlop Radial Rover A/T'* on. I had them on my RAM and not only were they quiet, but they would go through anything! They aren't all that expensive either.
