    What do you use your rig for? Or what type of rig are you after? If you whant to wheel with the best of the best keep your K5. If you want to hall 'bed toys' to paly with get a P/U.
    Hell keep your K5 and get a P/u to tow it to the trail head....then you can take the knarliest trails with us...

    Do you have a familly? Thats the biggest reason i love my truck so much. I can ride trails go mudding and still put everybody in for a trip. And of course all my stuff in the back stays dry!

    if you haul a bunch of stuff (like I do) just get a trailer. I had a p/u and my blazer has been more useful by far!
    I'm gonna ryno line the back of mine so I don't have to worry about messing up carpet when muddy dogs jump back there or greasy parts, etc.
    The only way I'd get a pickup is if I had to haul a gooseneck. And even then, I'd buy a seperate truck for that and still keep the blazer.

    If you see my truck on a trailer, call 911 cause it's <font color=red>STOLEN!!!</font color=red>

    Well I have been in the same vote... I wanted a pickup since day one but just can't find any up here that re decently priced and not rusted out junk. I'm doing like Lara, Herculining the interior rear portion to haul motr. Still not as good as a pickup but it will have to do. If you have a family it is the only way to go. The best thing about the Blazer is no 3 across the bench [​IMG]

    I had two trucks and switched to the K5 cuz its unbeatable....if you need to hual stuff get a trailer as mentioned. My blazer even gets better gas milage than both my other trucks...plus its a standard huals even better and the seating capacity is sweet.....who needs a sunroof? mine is removable.....after owning two trucks and always wanting a blazer i see why i love my blazer so much...not to mention turning radius is just down right awesome!! You'll kick yourself for selling it if you do, since aquiring mine I have two friends on the prowl for one now and they both dislike older vehicles but blazers are just too cool!
