Wisconsin Ringbrothers hot rod builders brought four new builds to the SEMA 2022 show, including this 1972 Chevrolet K5 Blazer.

Dubbed the Bully, the Blazer boasts 1,200 hp courtesy of a GM-sourced 6.8-liter LS3 V-8 topped with a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger. That power is sent to all four wheels through a 4-speed GM 4L80E automatic transmission and Dana 44 front and Dana 60 rear axles.

To cope with the steroid power while preserving off-road capabilities, Ringbrothers opted for a custom frame with four-link triangular suspension damped by two Fox Racing coilovers per wheel. The Blazer features Cooper Discoverer STT Pro tires, while stopping power is provided by 15-inch front and 14-inch rear rotors locked by 6-piston Baer calipers.

The exterior retains most of the factory style, but with some subtle updates. The carbon fiber fender flares make room for the huge tires and the hood is also made of a lightweight material. The Blazer is painted in a shade called Bashful Blue.

The interior was based on a “floating” theme, with a dashboard made up of three individual pods and cushioned seats to make them look a bit like garden chairs. The dashboard and gearshift knobs are unique, as is the carbon fiber steering wheel. A winch and Jerry can take up most of the cargo area.

The Bully Blazer is one of four vehicles that Ringbrothers brought to the SEMA 2022 show. Others include Patriarc, a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1, Strode, a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro with wide carbon fiber bodywork, and Enyo, a pick- up 1948 Chevrolet radically reinvented.
