    Yeah buddy, have dreamed of having one for a daily driver, forever. The only turn down is the 2 gallons to the mile fuel economy. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Not if you get the diesel ones. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    They actually have good mileage.
    I got something that will some day be similar. I will post some pics as soon as I can get them on here.

    deuce and a halfs go pretty cheap at government auctions. (I think under 10k last one I looked at)

    Wouldn't mind converting one to a tilt flatbed to haul vehicles with /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    What?
    You can get it from Boyce for much less than that, 7500 for 2.5ton diesel, 4500 for the gasser.
    And those are reconditionned, and as you all know boyce are pricey.
    I have seen them go in auctions for under 1k.

    2 86 k5's just fell into my lap. Both are military 6.2 diesel 24/12 set ups. Is there anything in particular that makes these Blazers any different or more desireable than the civilian models? Other than the 24 volt starter and the batteries and alternators in series?

    I believe if the emissions stickers are on them, (top of the core support) the trucks will NEVER have to pass emissions, no matter where you live. Last one I looked at stated something like "federally exempt from all emissions" on the GM printed label.

    Don't think they even had EGR, which was standard at least as late as '85 (probably a couple years earlier too) on other GM diesels, so no way an '86 CUCV could be tested as a 1986 commercial diesel truck. Could be wrong on that, but the '85 5.7 Olds diesels had EGR, perhaps trucks didn't until later on.

    Well to me, it's the th400 and the nice shackles on the bumpers
    I think other than what you mentionned they are the same.
    I could be wrong but I also think they had better gearing in the axles. and most came with lockers.

    maybe i am just cheap, but those prices are laughable, surely they are not getting that for that stuff, or maybe i just pass on too many deals without knowing it /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    That one I posted is a 10 ton, slightly beefier than a 2 1/2 ton. It's listed for $10k.
