Good morning ColoradoK5. I have some questions from a new user. I currently own a regular cab 2000 short box chevy. I was going to lift it, tires and wheels this winter. However /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif This weekend, I ran into my cousin. He has a 89 - 90 or so K5 blazer. He put an 8" lift on it, tires and wheels. It's missing the front drive shaft. He said he had some issues with the lift. He bought for 5,200 2 years ago. Electric windows, locks all that stuff the back window doesn't work. But everything else does. He told me he would sell the truck to me for 3,500. It has 75,000 original miles on it. That is about the same price it would cost me to lift my truck and get it set up for wheeling. Is this a good deal? I need more details on the truck (I have only seen it twice from a distance. I know it has some rust. Anything to look for? How hard is it to find a drive shaft? Is it common for a truck like that to eat shafts with that much lift? Personally I think 4" with 33's is enough but if I can get a good deal, so be it. What do you experts think?
