Discussion in '1973-1991 K5 Blazer | Truck | Suburban' started by **DONOTDELETE**, Apr 16, 2000.

    I think I may have found a blazer, here is the info on it:
    We are looking at a straight up trade, he keeps the winch and the 44's and I keep my 38" Radials though and get a set of 35's for road trips. What do you think?

    1990 K-5, the 350 TBI motor,700R4 trans and NP241 transfer case are all stock. The 700r4 has been rebuilt by a guy that now works for art carr. Silverado, but no carpet, Rhino lined inside !

    Dana 60 front 14 bolt rear
    4.56 gears detroit in the rear
    4 wheel disk brakes
    crossover steering
    44's with beadlocks
    Dual Optima Batteries
    6 inch front springs
    rear shackle flip with a 2 inch block
    1.5 inch body lift
    all the spring hangers have been drooped 2 inches for more lift with less
    spring arch
    on board air(inop)
    Fair amount of trail dents , but zero rust
    wheel well have been drastically cut(front fenders would have to be changed if you wanted pretty)rear could be covered with cut-out flares
    Heavy duty home made bumpers

    Looks and sounds good, but what'll we call you now... Big Blaze or Big K , how about just big! Trail dents good... parking lot dents.... bad! Oh yeah and just send the 44's to my address!

    Sounds nice but Wow has it been hacked up. I dunno I just love the Burb I guess. You have so much time and effort into it.

  4. The front fenders are hacked bad, but I want to trail ride not look good, and fenders ain't expensive any way. The rear can be covered with cut-out flares. I'm looking at articulation, Dana 60,crossover steering, rear disc,rhino lined, it's a K-5, ect....

    I think that Blazer looks great. Hacked fenders is a minor thing, mine are hacked and I don´t give a f**k about it[​IMG], and as you said yourself, fenders are cheap. It´s got all the right stuff in it....except maybe the t-case, but so what? No rust is a BIG plus too, and finally you´ll have a good tranny[​IMG] (I think I´ve read that your 700 in the burb decided to give up?). I guess it all comes down to if you´re ready to part from your burb? Speaking for my self I couldn´t sell the first Blazer I got. It´s currently hiding out under a big tree without engine, tcase and tranny. For some reason, despite all the sh*t it threw at me (everything broke), I still love it[​IMG]. It definitly´s got a soul.

    I guess I will let ya become a member of the "Brothers of the K5" [​IMG] ya K5 wannabe [​IMG]. All jokes aside, I really like your Burb alot, but it sounds like it is not functional for what you need. That K5 is an awesome specimen. I will become the little Bro of that one because mine now has a '91 grille and is White as a ghost. Good Luck and if ya piss off the wife, ya can always stay in the K5! Great Camping vehicle [​IMG]

    Sounds liek a GREAT blazer. But one question for ya. Wouldn't you of all people, rather build it up yourself, rather than buying one that's already had all that done to it?

    I think with cut out flares and the 38's that you're keeping it should look great..keep us posted.

    I don't think Netscape likes the space in the name. It works in Internet Explorer ... gotta love Microsoft.

    I got an '87 GMC Jimmy if you want to trade!! I'd drive an "urban assault vehicle" anyday, especially to school!! That 'Burb' would look great sitting in the parking lot at school. HAHAHA Later

  17. That is my debate ! I can still work on rollcage, 3- link(Thanks to David Schere the thought has never left my mind)engine mods, body/paint(maybe)I wanna hit the trails and ride hard, the burb is too big and too pretty for all that now. I over did it on the paint thing(I should of left it with the OEM paint)There are still alot of things to do and of course I can break anything as my wife puts it!!
