    Allright, now that my K5 is down for the count with some upcoming upgrades; I managed to find myself a baby blazer.

    95 S10 blazer 4x4, all stock for a whopping final price of $1800. This truck is gonna be my DD and storm chasing rig, only major plans for it is some slightly larger tires, new suspension bushings and struts, bull bar and lights, and a lot of $$$ worth of electronics (HF/VHF/UHF radios, laptop, GPS). The engine in this truck has 170k on the ticker, but I've already got a spare engine and transmission for it; no major concern there.

    watch out mountainexplorer, I'll catch up with you eventually ;)

    I saw your post and saw that you're from Virginia, mind sharing what part? I live in VA too and I'm a storm chaser as well. Here's my storm chasing vehicle!
    I have a website, www.stormcruzzer.com, and a facebook, www.facebook.com/stormcruzzer if you're interested in looking into the project more! Feel free to message me on the FB if you have any questions

    Welcome to the forum, actually thats one of the sysop's job, but one piece of advice, always look at the posting date when reading an interesting post.

    Jagged posted that 9 years ago.......
