    I'm considering selling my Blazer and maybe through Ebay . So tell me what a realistic price would be to ask for ...... specs are as follows
    >>>>

    >
    Nice interior , custom covered buckets with black and deep red cloth (rear bench is still tan factory) . Billet dask kit , Auto meter tach and oil guage , all other guages work fine .
    >>
    Billet steering wheel , and hurst shifter for transfer case . All new carpet in side last year , and door panels , body is solid , underneath has had some rust issue's with floor pans which has a piece of 18 guage sheet metal installed over them front to back , now solid . Heater works fine no a/c .
    >>>
    10 bolt front & 12 bolt rear , stuffed with 4.56 gears last fall , everything in front redone , ball joints , tire rods drag link etc. , Locking Warn hubs , TH 350 trans with 20 or 30 thousand miles , heavy duty EVERYTHING , 2 stage shift kit and mild stall . Transfer case 203 rebuilt with tranny and part time kit installed . 4" E-Z ride full spring suspension , with custom lengthened front & rear shafts , Long travel suspension ( 13.5" Skyjacker shcoks ) front ford towers . End to end steering stabilizer . Crome diff covers front & rear . 36" swamper radials with about 30% tread , maybe a bit more ? on 15x10 Aluminum wheels . no frame cracks around steering box !
    >>>>>
    Now for the good part
    Motor: 5 ,000 miles maybe 6,000 on rebuild .
    350" sbc .040 over = 358 , high volume Moroso blue printed oil pump , 6.00" steel rods , Keith Black pistons "flat top" , Moroso 7qt. Kick out pan & windage tray , center mains studded, outer Milodon bolts "All hardware ARP or Milodon TOP & Bottom . Total Seal gapless rings , file fit . Rotating assembly balanced to with in 1/4 gram internally and crank weight lessened , Block was shot peened , magged , decked to zero with total quench at .038 , DONE RIGHT ! Crane cam specs : 214'" intake & 224" exhaust @ .050 . cam degreed , Pete Jackson gear drive with billet timing cover , machined for roller bearing button , (to stop cam walk) .
    >>>
    Heads are 462x castings , 67cc chambers, Manley pro flow valves , 2.05" intake & 1.60" exhasut . Ports hogged and complete 2nd stage street port done $880.00 ea.

New 4 core radiator & pump when engine put in .
    >>>>>
    Compression at 10.3.1 , "conservatively rated" around 385h.p. & 435 trq. , rings were file fit for 100 h.p. shot of Juice but I've never bought the set up . It runs well ! The body on the Blazer has some wiskey bumps but looks fairly good , it's not a show winner but is a solid 4 wheel drive , Doesn't look to bad when cleaned up . Has winch bumper on front and 2 KCs , chrome grill , chrome rear bumper and trailer hitch . Fenders have been trimmed , to allow for the flex with bigger tires and no more lift . I can send pics if anyone "seriously interested" , I live in Haines , AK , I don't drive it to much because it gets 7 mpg and you have to run premium . But mechanically I'd drive it any where , (if I could afford it) , What is it worth ? I figure if I can't get $4,000.00 for it then I won't sell it . I have almost $7000.00 in the engine alone Summit and Jegs love me .....LOL .
    So tell me what you think ? Should I do ebay , I've tried locally and know one has any money for a toy . What would you do ?

    Are you kidding me? Isn't that what ebay is for, to find out what it's worth, as it is an auction.
    Sign up for a Membership and slap it in the for sale section where it belongs, still cheaper than autotrader.com etc.

    Dude your in Alaska. I believe if your gonna get rid of it, you'll have to sell it locally. $4000 sound good to me but I've never paid more than $400 for any of my fullsizes. If you put it on ebay set the reserve at 4gs and start it at a dollar. You'll find out what they're willing to pay.

    BTW Steve I'm digging the new avatar. :xmas:

    Just curious if ebay is actually dependable

    My concern was if others have had issue's with people not paying or more trouble than it's worth , you know , past experience in the auto sells on Ebay , I mean sight unseen is some what scary to trust !!! So yeah I suppose I am series , more than anything wanted to hear , "yeah it worked great for me selling my Blazer" , or something similar . Some encouragement . :D I have paid for memberships in the past and just haven't renewed it yet this year , I still never got the stickers from the last two times ?? But thats another issue !

    Well if thats what you wanted to hear then I haven't had any dead beat bidders........yet, but maybe I've been lucky. Now that we know what your asking I'm sure someone else will chime in with their experience. :xmas:
