It's been a year since I parted with my 87 K5 Blazer. I thought I could make a smooth transition into the new "suv" world. Needless to say, big mistake, as of this weekend, the wife will be driving a 2000 Nissan Xterra, something I could never get even close to cherishing as much as my Blazer... What I am looking for is any info, besides the great info listed on this site, that I might need to make my final descision between and 88 and a 90 both 350 Silverados.The 90 actually has about 20,000 more miles but the transmission seems to be shifting fine in both as well as both keeping a low temp.. Both seem to be in equal condition, great mechanical shape, and excellent body condition. This will be my second time checking them out and I plan to drive away with one of them after trying to be "patient" enough after a month of examining numerous 87-91 models... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as this site seems to be a great source of knowledge. Also a quick question that has been asked before... I'm looking for a good quality soft top that can accomidate passengersin the back seating area... I have seen Kayline's and I was wondering if there are any others that are a good investment.. Thanks for your time and I look forward to the info.. Take care.
