    K5's are all blazers 2WD & 4WD. K10's are 4WD 1/2 ton pickups

    Ummm, I could quite possibly be mistaking but arent 2wd blazers and jimmys called C5's? /forums/images/icons/confused.gif It makes since to call them that since everything else is a K series if 4wd and C series if 2wd. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Is does make sense that the 2-wheelers should be called C5's but they're classifed as K5s. Go figure..... /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

    Actually I just looked it up in my owners manual as well as my repair manual and it said they were called c5's. I guess GM was just to lazy to make C5 emblems.

    Interesting! Who wants a 2WD blazer anyhow! /forums/images/icons/ooo.gif There was a post a while back in which a couple of 2WD drive owners chimed in that their title stated it was a K5 and so did the VIN's. but who cares! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
