    Well, i am going to sell my truck and am starting the search for a blazer/jimmy! :-) My first question is about rust. I live in MI, so most of the K5s i'll see will have some amount of rust. What places are really bad for rust? The frame i know <L> but other than that?

    Thanks for the info!

    Another bad area is the tailpan and the lower lip of the tailgate.
