    The only thing made in a K20 version of four doors is the Suburban.

    All the Blazers/Jimmy's you see with 8 lug axles, big blocks etc are custom... BTW Don't type in all caps, it's hard to read.

    It would probably be cheaper to buy a 1/2ton and convert all the 3/4 or 1 ton stuff on it than buy one already done...

    If you can find an auction or someone selling one you can get a military 1980's blazer. They have 8 lug axles with a 6.2 diesel motor , turbo 400 auto and I believe a 205 transfer case. I used to live in Norwich CT. and I ran into a guy that bought two of these blazers for $1200.00! They came from a state run aution for National Guard equipment.

    The military blazer, classified as an M1009, is rated as a 3/4 ton ONLY for the military. They are a TRUE 1/2 ton because they have the 10B front and rears with 3.08 ratios. They also have the 6.2, and the NP 208 t-case. They are just like the civilian blazers.

    The only way to get everything you want is to build it yourself. Most of the folks out there who do 3/4 ton, manual, 410's, and a nice V8 don't want to part with them easily.
