Sport Variant Of Full-Size Chevy Blazer By Flat Out Autos Unveiled6
Earlier this year, an Arkansas-based shop called Flat Out Autos announced it would build a modern-day GMC Jimmy based on the current-generation GMC Sierra pickup, releasing a series of teaser images of the custom SUV. Now, this same company has confirmed it will be producing a sporty Chevy Blazer version of the two-door truck, which will be based on the Chevy Silverado 1500.
Renderings released of Flat Out Autos’ two-door Chevy Blazer indicate the truck will be based on the pre-refresh, T1-generation Chevy Silverado 1500 in the LT trim level and will feature large multi-spoke alloy wheels, large performance brakes with red-painted brake calipers, lowered suspension and a custom body kit with a prominent front lip and side skirts. A custom roll bar sits over the rear exposed bench seat, while a removable hardtop roof completes the throwback Chevy Blazer appearance.

Further details on Flat Out Autos’ custom two-door GM SUVs are scarce at the moment. We expect it to offer GM’s familiar 5.3L V8 L84 and 6.2L V8 L87 engines, however, while the company has said it will offer a Duramax diesel powerplant, as well. In addition to the sporty variant pictured here, customers will be able to order the vehicle with off-road parts like lifted suspension and off-road wheels and tires. A GMC Sierra-based Jimmy conversion with off-road parts is pictured in the background of the Instagram gallery embedded in this article.
GM may have no plans to produce a two-door, body-on-frame SUV in the spirit of the old Chevy Blazer and GMC Jimmy, but at least the aftermarket has filled in this admittedly small gap in the automaker’s portfolio. Stay tuned for more details on this project as it comes to fruition in the coming months.

Wouldn’t cutting up a Tahoe be closer to the real thing.
Nice. Flat Out does some real cool old/new blend Tahoe builds. The lowering should be on a slight frontal rake.
Like the stance. No running boards or steps needed.
It’s time to give up the foolish things.
Pricy but with the cost of the restored or simply really good condition 2dr Yukons, Tahoes, Explorers and Ramchargeres at auctions recently there is obviously a market for these vehicles. I love my ’94 Yukon!
