    i found this 1973 blazer while drivin down some back roads. body is pretty much shot, has a 396 bumped upto a 407(he says 380 horse) 1 ton rear,3/4 ton front w/ 4.56's. 38" groundhawgs on wagon wheels. rollcage that needs some finishing on it. np205/400t combo. he wants $2000.00 for it. I just found out from a buddy that this same guy was tryin to sell it 2 years ago for $2000.00. I guess the plus side to buying it would be all the extras i would get along with the things i need. The only other thing i would still need is that ever eluding, hard to find front dana 60 for a reasonable price. any input would be great. thanx again.

    Good price as long as the motor is strong along with the tranny. All you need to do is come up with another 1000 and buy a dana 60 with 4.56s from wayne.

    offer the dude $1500
    try to settle for 1700 or 1800 if he was trying to get $2000 2 years ago for it. sounds like it could be a fun beater truck.

    Yup I'm with Ryan on the 1500 deal. Only bring 1500 CASH with you! Whip out that wad of 100s and show it to him and say "This is ALL I got!!"
    He will take your cash and you will get the rig!!
