    It seems to have taken long enough but I can say I'm the proud new owner of this beauty! Or hag if you know what I'm gonna have to do to get it fixed up... And I probably got screwed on the price but it's a really fun vehicle, and I'm gonna enjoy it!

    [​IMG]

    6" Suspension Lift (w/ blocks)
    3" Body Lift (It Suxors)
    '94 Chevy 350 Engine w/ 45,000 Mi
    New Tranny
    New Rear End
    36" MT Baja Belted
    Blem Rims (like 589's or Classic 2's)
    Crappy Interior(With Custom Recline rear seat(broken somehow))
    Non-working radio!!!

    And a trillion stickers!!!!!!

    WIth a little TLC, I may find that It is truly an enjoyable vehicle, and I'm already very optimistic about it's future...

    All I can say is: YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    SWEET, now ditch the body lift, get some 39.5s, hack the fenders, and write CK5 on the side...

    Did you find it here locally? Haven't seen it around before. But then again I don't get around town much these days.

    Well, Thanks for the great replies... Really made my day!

    I dropped about 5.5 bills for it...

    Bubba: Actually bought from a friend at school who graduated. Off to basic training, so he had to get rid of it. It was up in Kingsburg. I drive 60 miles to school and back !every! day.

    I'm thinking right now that i'm gonna need to get the air conditioning fixed before anything else. Then probably get some seats for it. And after that a posi or locker or a 14bolt SF. But that all takes money, and money takes time.

    My primary goal is getting it liveable, considering the heat of the California Sun.

    Thanks again!

    And actually, because of the my trip to school each day, my dad offered to get me 35" BFG All-Terrains and MT Classic II's. So I'm all set in the exeterior style division (not that that really matters)!!! Function is more important than Form, you know? But i think the drivetrain, and interior are gonna need some work.

    Does anyone know why the AM/FM doesn't work on my JVC KD-S580, but the CD does? Is it maybe the antennae wire isn't connected? What would i need to do to fix it possibly? Thanks...

    Does it display tuner type lookin stuff? If so, I'd look into checkin to make sure the coax is complete from one end to the other. It's prolly just the male end of the antenna lead isn't connected to the female that comes from the deck. I hope this maybe kinda helps you. Good luck.

    damn i've been wanting to paint my blazer hugger orange since the day i bought it, but now i want to even more. problem is i wouldnt want to do it half ass i'd want to take out the dash and paint is to make and door jams and etc. but all that takes time and money. maybe in the winter when i'm redoing the floors.

    well anyway nice truck. and dont worry what you paid as long as you have fun driving it.
