    What's the difference? The emblem on the side says K5, but my title (paper-work) says K-10??
    I've really enjoyed all the post's I've read here, and I'm learning lot's of things about Blazers. This winter I found one, it's an '82, and I hope to do some up grades.
    Anyways, I'm new here, and 'thanks-in-advance' for all the tips.

    Maybe it's a K10 because the pic is easily twice as big as it needs to be...:D

    I have the same problem, the truck is a 3/4 ton but it says K10 on the title?

    oh well it's just a piece of paper, I still have the order sheet from the factory in the truck.

    Bhintz: thanks, I'll check into the error on my paper work.
    tRustyK5: I reduced the image size, I'm new to all this...
    Resurrection Joe: Thanks, I was very lucky to find this one, I had been looking for a while. The first owner, (maybe I'm not sure) put the lift on.
    I think it's about 4inches, but he did a good job and used good parts.

    Saturday while browsing at my local tire shop I saw some 'Cooper-STT's', they look pretty nice to me, (about $160 each), has anyone used these tires?
    Cooper and Pro Comp are the same outfit right? They should be a good tire.

    I am running Mickey Thompson M/T's 35x12.50x15 I love em, they are quiet on the road and provide ample traction in mud. Don't know a price on them, but I like them over A/T's.

    K/5 is just a name used on the fender emblem. All Blazer VINs identify them as a K10 (half ton truck chassis) with a utility body.

    No I guess not. Im actually in Clayton. But who the hells heard of Clayton(maybe Skipolini's).I thought I was all alone out here.
    Let me commend you on your site. I have been looking for a while for old pictures of 67-72 era and these are great. You havent been able to find one on 72 trucks I guess though :frown1:

    1981 GMC Jimmy
    2 door station wagon

    LOL, true that! Not many full convertable station wagons around either...

    Here a K5 is considered a passenger vehicle like a car (car plates too) Same goes for any SUV...

    Concord rocks. THE K10 just designates it as a half ton and the k5 is for the 5 passenger suv.Just for the ones that don't know. I know most of us do.

    I've never seen k5 on a blazer title ever.

    But...there are station wagon titles and truck titles...
    I guess...they had no rime or reason.

    It's nice to have a station wagon title in Ohio...the plates are cheaper!!!:cool1:

    Not all Blazers are K10. Newer Blazers 87-91 are V10. The V set them apart from Chevy K series trucks when they went IFS on the pickups, and kept the SFA on the Blazers.
