    Photo\'s of our \'91 K1500...

    Howdy again, from the Great White North. I felt like a dummy for not having a photo of my Blazer when joining a "Blazer Website Forum" so I took a couple photos & uploaded them to my homepage photos... Below are a couple photo's for you view...

    Like I said, pretty much stock other than the bumpers, winch, tires & rims, but it gets the family around & it's tough enough for mild fourwheeling.
    My Jeep is a bit more intense... but still kinda streetable, I am designing new fender flares to contain the tires /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Nice vehicles.
    Um...I think you need a little more wheelspin with your jeep. Your tires seem a bit caked. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Dude, the first time I looked at your pics, something registered in my head as not being right. Looking at them again, I figured it out. It's got the '91 front clip, body, hood ornament, tail lights, tailgate, and "fuel injection" emblem on the back, but it's got an '86-earlier headlamp setup/grill. Also, you write that it has an SM465...that's odd for a '91. Also, the glass in the '91 year in most cases was tinted...yours is not. What gives? Did you do all of this, or is this news to you? Enlighten me.

    91's came with that style grill and the dual light setup,it all depends on the trim package.the single light one being the cheaper of the two.i just bought a 91 a couple of months ago and came across both grill set-ups.

    Interesting, I guess I didn't know that.
    What about the manual tranny? Is that just a rare, but possible option?

    That sm465 ran in that year and in later years of trucks. Savage has the Custom Deluxe trim level or "work truck" set up. Pretty cool to have a manual and TBI! The tinted glass might have been an option on the Silverado package.

    Yup, our Blazer is the base model "work truck", ps, pb,3 speed heater fan, am/fm radio, rubber floor mats, roll up windows, std locks, no cosmetic or fancy options like A/C, tilt steering, cruise control, cloth bucket seats thus it has cccold vynel bucket seats [-15 up here this morning]. Works well, no need for creature comfort to interfere with operational ability. Savage /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Cool, keep it simple. I hate all the electric crap on mine and I can't wait to pull the carpet out. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The blue blob is just a piece of the chrome trim that busted off. <font color="orange"> Polaris </font color> has a '90 with the exact same 2 headlight grill.

    I think the "blue blop" is a piece of trim that is broken off, what you are seing is the fender. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    Nice vehicles Ken. Question on the blazer. I have one very similar (same headlights, grill and sm465) with a minor complaint. When I let up on the gas, the RPM doesn't fall off immediately. I think this is part of the emissions control system. This is an irritant when shifting. My old carbureted suburban shifts quicker and smoother because the rpm falls off immediately when shifting. Does your TBI blazer do this also? Is there any way to improve this situation?

    Yes as a mater of fact my Blazer does the same thing. I am betting on it being a screwed up throttle position sensor... haven't yet really done much to persue this problem.
    Once my Jeep upgrades are complete I will get after solving the minor problems &amp; doing some upgrades on the Blazer. My wife thinks the minor rust repair &amp; new paint are the first order of business. I will likely start by replacing the faulty sensor, adding headers &amp; dual exhaust too.
