    The woman is really pushing me to get a truck, and sell my blazer... I love my brazer, but we need a truck, a full size truck to haul stuff with... So I understand why we need to sell it... I bought it for 1500 bucks... it's a 78 with a new 350 (4 bolt main w-40000 miles on it) the engine has new heads on it... maybe 10000 on them... there the heavy duty heads, TH350 w/shift kit, NP203, D44 12Bolt w/3.73's New driveshaft in rear, New carpet, new dual exhause 2.5 inch flowmasters, CD Player, Pioneer 6x9's Just got new 35's bfg's AT's w/ nice rims.... Have 4 inch suspension lift with 3 inch body lift. I dont want to sell it but I may have to... What is this worth... I hate putting a price on something like this... It's my baby... It's blue and white... drives great.. does 90 down the road no problem, starts on first 1/2 second crank! No smoke... needs new front right fender, due to rust, but I have two new fenders and inner fenders for it.
    Let me know what you guy's think it's worth would ya...

    Um... yes officer I know it's too big...

    Priceless. Something you'll regret for along time to come if you sell it.

    I bought mine for 3500 in poorer mechanical condition than that. The reason i bought it is because the body is very good (except for those damn hoods that bend when you close them) Since then I have put alot of work into it and it runs like a champ. The top end has been taken apart and rebuilt. Put the part time kit in it added a compcam and some other stuff. I would not sell it for anything under 5000. When I looked for trucks i could not find anything as nice as mine is for under 5000. But i live in sout texas where we dont understand the meaning of rust. Also, my interior has been redone completly except for the doop panals, back pannals and dash. (Seats carpet headliner are brand new) The transmission had been rebuilt (th350) and it came with 33 inch bfg ats.

    P.S. Take the top off and remove the back seat. Put down some ply wood or something and its as good as a short bed pick up [​IMG]. Make some sort of rope system that hangs from your garage roof to remove the top. That way you can switch back and forth quickly.

    PSS Ive gotten my 78 up to 100 with no problems. The hood scared me into slowing down. I'm afraid it will fly up on me. But i know it will do more. [​IMG]

    You won't be able to get a good running, decent shap pickup for that... I'd just buy a flatbed snowmobile, atv, or whatever tailer to haul with... easier to put stuff in and out too... can buy one new for a grand.... you'd pay more then that after selling the blazer just to get a truck... none to less the repairs

    Since you know what you have with your current truck (and don't discount this) why not buy a utility trailer? Cost around $400-500 in the Oregonian all the time for decent haulers.

    You should buy a jeep and gut out the inside and use that for a trailer and drink some beer.[​IMG]

    I agree buy a trailer. You could even put in a hydraulic lift cheap. Then you would have a dump truck. err trailer.

    Become one with nature..........Then marinate it..

    Go buy a used flat bed trailer and use that. A blazer IS a truck remember? So just tell your wife that ya'll already have a truck and you will get a flat bed trailer and everyone will be happy. Your blazer can haul stuff just fine. I do it all the time...even with 8ft 2x4's.
