    89-91 K5\'s vs. 92 style Blazer

    Which would you guys choose? I really like both styles & am saving to buy a Blazer but don't know which one would be better. I personally do not have a preference of one over another. What are the good & bad things about each rig when compared side by side? Or are they just the same vehicle w/ different interiors & body?

    92 is when IFS came out on the Blazers. Also, they had the newer body style in which there is no removable top. Stick with the older ones.

    The 92 up looks more aerodynamic and probably is fuel efficency wise. Other than that the 91 and back are WAY COOLER! Most people don't even realize they have the removable top. A really good auto OD tranny and such cost efficent lift methods compared to its newer style brothers. Where they equal out is that All two dorr blazers and Jimmy's were discontinued in 99 I believe so they are all classic collectors items!

    I didn't know that the lift kits were cheaper on the 2nd gen Blazers, that's really good. I think that I'm gonna get like an '89 Blazer and use that money that I would of had to of spent on a '92 for &amp; use that for many mods. Hell I would come out so much cheaper too :D Thanx guys

    I'm a bit biased, but I like the '91 best (wink, wink). Really, any of the pre-1991 Blazers I like better than the 92+. IMHO.

    What is so special about the '91? All I know is that their production numbers are extremely low.

    There isn't anything specifically special about the '91, I just happened to find one that I liked best. When I was shopping around for K5's the '89-'91 were what I wanted for two reasons: 1) I wanted a newer Blazer, but not newer than the '91 and 2) I personnally like the front end with the quad lights best (of course, I could've bought an older K5 and updated the front-end, but since I was looking for a used one I limited my search). So in the end, my choice was just what I happened to like best.
