    Freaking long :haha: I know, I own one!

    GM says 20' 4.5" OA length for a 1973-1991 sixpack.

    BTW, sixpacks only ever came with longbeds from the factory in those years.

    This is opposed to 15' 4.5" for a K5 ... so figure five feet longer than your Blazer, at a minimum.

    Mine, with fat bumpers on both ends and the spare out front, is closer to 25'.

    Yah, we just had our first snow of the year and this is my first winter with the crew cab. I gotta say that the suburban doing cookies in an open parking lot full of powder was fun but this thing with duallys and the extra couple feet is downright awesome. Almost feels like the rear is going to catch up to you once you get going. :D
