My brother is in the market for a K-5. It will be his first 4x4 and he is not exactly a wrenchhead, so i am trying to help him out. He wants to buy a K-5 put a 4in lift and 35's on it. He wants it to be a weekend/play vehicle that he will take offroad (mudding and mild trail riding) some as well. We have looked at a lot of blazer and have found a lot of them to be in pretty bad shape. Ideally we wanted one with a manual trans and a 350. That hasn't worked out very well, so we found a 85 with a 305 and a 3 speed trans. I am not sure what trans it has, but it has L gear and then 1-2-3. The gear ratio is 3.08, so i would replace the axles with 3/4 tons with factory ratio of 4:10. The truck is really clean and has very little rust. It has 120,000 miles and runs good. I want to know if $4000 seems like a reasonable price to pay. The NADA price of it is only $3200, so it seems like they want a little to much. There is no power windows or locks, but that just means less to break. He is not lookin to have huge power just enough to be a decent on/off road rig. Will the 305 with manual trans and 4.10 gears be ok? Also the truck currently has 32's with the 3.08 ratio and its ok onroad, will the 35's and 4.10 preform better or at least as good as the current setup. Like i said we are new to 4x4's of this scale so any help would be appreciated.
