    Im torn between 2 trucks. The first is a 1986 Blazer CUCV with a 6.2 diesel. The second is a 1989 K5 silverado edition. Both trucks need some TLC. The CUCV needs an interior and i plan on painting the OD green exterior primer black for an eventual paint job. The 89 needs body work due to surface rust. So what you you guys think? Whats the better choice?

    By the way....hi....im new!

    what do you plan to do with the truck? daily driver. wheeler? im partial to 89's since thats what i had. you cant beat EFI and overdrive.also the best grill of any blazer IMO. on the other hand, diesel's are pretty cool. alot depends on what your final product is going to be.

    Thanks for the quick responses guys. The owner of the CUCV sold it on me. Im not too happy because i wanted that one. But its ok. Im planning on going to pickup the 89 today or tomorrow. Ill soon be joining the K5 owner community! I was planning on having a DD/Trailrunner.
