    I would seee how much you can get the m1009 for first. If that works sell the rest for parts. Worked out well for my bud like that Mike

    If the M1009 comes cheap enough, get it, take the engine, and offer the rest for sale, here in CA you can put any gas engine in them and not worry about smog so you will get some bites /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Get one of the complete blazers, it's the best way to make sure you get EVERYTHING you need to reinstall the diesel. My m1008 had been canibalized and at first glance didn't need much, but it has been a pain to track down all the missing odds and ends. You will be way ahead if you start with a running truck to get everything you need and then sell whats left over.
