    ...actually two. First, How many milles(kms in canada and europe) do you guys have on your blazers? Second, how did everybody find about this site. I found out by finding out about off-road.com/chevy at a serach engine and after a few months some said somethin about coloradok5.com in the message board. Whats your story?

    I have around 141,000. The engine sounds like it is one its last leg but it still has all of its power. The trans still works perfect.

    I'm approaching 78K on my 89. Had 59K when I bought it 14 months ago. So far...new transfer case, rear drive shaft, and rear end rebuild. Stock 350 still purrs like a kitten.
    I found out about CK5 by entering "Blazer" in a search engine.

    Truck has 126,000 miles. Anyways, I found this site over a year ago, maybe year and a half from off-road.com. I remember when the forum use to be the old style. I remember asking questions to Grim, Dep, Corey88, Shawn, Todd78/87, Steve, Burt 4x4, WhiteKnight, BigBurb and several other guys. This site has grown so much since than.

    Hate to say it but I'm still in the 76,000 mi. window on my '72. I know that's original as it's been in the family since new. :) Last summer I rebuilt the Rocky Q-jet and performed a total tune up, plug/wire replacement, etc. Fires like a champ runs smooth as silk, thank you very much!

    350,000 or so on the 79 body. I know it's on engine 3 but engine #2 was a cheap rebuild # 3 is a crate engine so sould push it to 500k is we keep it that long.
    75 I guess has 250,000 or so. I know it has been rebuilt once.

    My 84 has 208,000 kilometers on everything but the tranny- it was rebuilt at 174,000. That damn 305 just won't die!!!!
    But when it does..........hehehehehe!!!!

    Don't remember how I came across the site, but I think I was surfin' one night and stumbled onto it, back when it looked a whole lot different, and there were probably less than 500 people around.
