    I have a need to unload both of these vehicles due to lack of time and money. Here is what they are:

    1988 Chevy fullsize blazer - This thing looks a little rough. It doesn't have any holes showing from the outside but needs floorpan/rocker repair. The engine is a 350ci that has dropped an oil ring on one of the cylinders. Runs but I wouldn't plan any long trips with it. I am using this as local transportation right now. Has manual hubs. drivetrain is functional. I believe the gears are 3.05. The tires on the back are VERY good 31.50x10x15 and the fronts are about half gone. Rims are the aluminum factory type. I have the centers for them but never got around to putting them on.

    1989 GMC Jimmy. This thing has got a rotten body complete with "hole" accents throughout. The floor is about the same. It had a crude repair job done to the drivers floor. The steering column has come completely loose. Driving this thing is NOT an option unless I tear into the column to repair whatever let loose. The engine is a 350 ci that runs quite well. Hell, even the AC works in this stupid thing. Has auto hubs on the front. The gearing is 3.42 but the rear end is making a thrumming noise due to a bad pinion gear on the rear differential. It's a long story about how some sellers will not be completely honest. It does have the lighted vanity mirrors on both sides.

    In addition to the whole vehicles I have a replacement 12 bolt rear end with 3.42 gears, a 3.08 10 bolt rear end that I can't remember why I bought it and a rear tailgate that is in nice shape, complete with glass and little to no rust.

    Both vehicles have power windows that work slowly. No surprise there. I have clear titles for both vehicles.

    Basically what you have hear is a collection of parts that could be driven (Well one vehilce anyway) to your location for adding to your parts collection or for selling off. I just don't have the time for it.

    Of course now comes the part where I ask for money. I would like to get $300 for the whole mess. But hey let's talk and see what we come up with. Insanely high offers are welcome since the misses has just started back to work and we are still trying to recover from old medical bills.

    If pictures would help to better get an idea of what your getting I will run some off and post back. Or maybe you just want a good laugh. Either way I will guage interest by checking for replies. PM or email me for further info.
