    I found mine by placing a wanted ad on local Rancher/farmer message boards. Lot of farmers have trucks in a barn somewhere. You'd be suprised on what you might find. I ended up with a 1976 K5 Blazer in real good condition (almost 100% stock) from the original owner with only 83,000 miles on it for $1,500.00 and only had to go 500 miles to get it. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    I did a search for them on the web. But stopping at feed stores and asking around might be a good idea too.

    I just put in rancher/farmer message board and (/SD) for South Dakota. Do that with your states ins. Try everything you can think of. I posted my wanted ad and got replys with in a few weeks.

    Im not sure how close to you this would be but I heard about a Blazer on HWY 19 around Cross City. Its already lifted and such. I can get more details if its close enough to you. All I can get is a better idea of exactly what town it was and what it looked like. I do know it was at a car lot. I think it was around 4500.
