My suspicion on the brakes would be warped rotors, not sure if unevenly worn pads would cause that also. Remove the front tires and check for grooves on the rotors

You might want to have a serious chat with yourself about the truck. Is it really worth fixing ?
It looks like the repair cost will far exceed the replacement value
-no insurance ?

As far as the body goes, I believe that the sheet metal up front is pretty much interchangeable across the model years. There may be a few differences I'm not aware of, so you may want to concentrate on '06-'09.
I'm not sure the fenders will interchange between model with the full length grille bar, such as you show in your pic, and the models without that full length bar. I seem to have read somewhere that they are a bit different.

Probably NOT the tires.

Most-likely seized or partly-seized caliper pistons. The side it pulls-to is working better than the opposite side. Look for problems to be worse on the left side if it pulls to the right.

Other possibility is wiped-out ball joints, control arm bushings, tie rod ends, wheel bearings, etc. Braking causes a change in toe, which causes direction change.

But Trailblazers have aluminum calipers, and they're known to corrode behind the square-cut seal, leading to seized or partly-seized pistons that don't squeeze the pads hard enough. Folks don't flush the brake fluid often enough, the fluid gets contaminated with water; the water corrodes the aluminum. Sometimes the pistons are so stuck that it takes a thousand pounds of pressure from a grease-gun to get the pistons to push out. (In good condition, the pistons will move with 35--50 psi, folks use compressed air at ~90 psi to blow the pistons out of the caliper.)
