    I thought a Blazer is bigger than this. Is this just a miss print?

    Year:: 1972 Production Total: 44,266
    Base Price: 3,145 Weight: 3,677
    Wheel Base: 104 in. Fuel Tank Capacity: 23.5-gallon
    Length: 177.5 in. Height: 68.7 in.

    This can from the SPEC page on this sight.

    for a 72 i think "base weight" means:
    no top
    no passenger seat
    no rear seat

    so thats ~350 lbs right there
    but yeah, that does seem low

    seems like the wheel base is longer. If I remeber right a 72 blazer seems massive compared to my wagoneer.

    I guess a 72 with 4" running 36 tsl is just look bigger rig. I am going to bitch the wagoneer and pick up this 72 next month. It also has a 396. Looking forward to wheeling a bigger truck . I started off with a TJ, than digressed to wagoneer. Hopefully this K5 will be inspiring.
