    So i can't add new posts. . . so here, instead- i'm editing this
    looked today- 211k but they said i can take it to any mechanic or dealer to have it checked out. one owner, i assume all highway miles, hitch is clean and has no fifth wheel so i'm guessing it was not used to tow heavy loads. older man owned it. it is in VERY good shape! Might have the blazer sold tomorrow for $2000, then i'm taking it there and giving them $2k to hold the truck for me.

    Re: Blazer might gotta go

    I'd do it. K5's are a dime-a-dozen(76+) I like the cummins, personally. Later on, when you get a K5, you've already got your tow rig... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Re: Blazer might gotta go

    98 seems out of price range. I'm looking in the 12ish range.

    Deisel will remain FAIRLY stock for awhile but I want to do some little things at first. Like dual stacks (split under bed) edge juice, and maybe boost turned up 3-4lbs.

    Hey, i am a hillbilly, a redneck, whatever. I have no problem if ya'll don't like stacks. I do, I think they are just plain BADASS, that's just my redneck self talking though. The MAIN part is the DIESEL ENGINE!

    Ya don't feel too bad about selling the k5, they are a dime a dozen, you can just buy a different one down the road, maybe even score one with the junk you want on it already.

    oh, i can buy more. . . i can buy more. . . :hysterical:

    Eventually the Superduty will be on 39" boggers if it's not a tow rig. or if it's a dually then 35s.
