    I always watch the show and it seems that almost all of the shows are reruns then the next time episodes are new, but they show re-runs again. Oh ya also I emailed trucks saying they should do something with a project blazer. anyone aggree they should do that?

    <font color=blue>It costs a LOT of $$$ to make just one of those shows, so they only make a few and just re-play them. Otherwise, the costs to make the show would be greater then overall profit. I think we might have to wait until january to see them put simple bolt-ons on yet another showroom fresh truck</font color=blue>

    I think they should have a show where they just SHUT THE HELL UP and just show a bunch of guys out fourwheein' and you could hear the motors revving and the tires clawing. Seems like even when 4-wheeler was on TNN that you had 15min. of commercial and 13 min. of yappin' with 2 min. of wheelin'.

    I couldn't possibly think of one good reason to own a Jimmy. One of the best days in my life was when I bought my 84 blazer. I love that thing. Why would you want a smaller version with less room and less power. As far as I'm concerned the only way is a full size Blazer and a big Ol' gas slurping V-8. YEA BABY

    love my blazer, and 43 carryall

    Excuse me, but my Jimmy is the exact same size as your Blazer. Dont always assume that just cause its named Jimmy that its an S-10 version. And as for less power... Id say my 1968 Corvette 327 bored .060 over, flat tops, RV cam and my 4:56 gears should be able to compete with your Blazer...

    Ummm, I have a Jimmy and a Blazer, both are K5's, so they are the same. So I don't know which I prefer. But my Jimmy has 38" tires and a lift so it towers over my stock Blazer.

    Blazer, Jimmy, same thing they both kick major a$$!
    p.s. It does seem like they never finish a project on "Trucks".

    I've had both versions of Jimmy. The full size and S-15. I prefer the full size, but only because it had a 6" lift and 35" Swampers. The power was better too, but what I wouldn't do to have my lil' ol' S-15 with the V8 in it though! Damn, that baby hauled ass!! Had posi and dual exhaust, manual, and it was FLY!! Good luck on your arguements! LOL Later

    You know, that's true. Blazer does sound better. In fact, I call my Jimmy a Blazer all the time. It's just that when I was growing up, these trucks were just "Blazers" so that's how I still think of all of them today.

    But sometimes when I'm going down the street, people stare because of how big my Jimmy is. Sometimes they look at my truck, too!

    (sorry about the poor taste and all...)

    I think Mel and Stacy should quit building $hit boxes. The Wicked Willies is the coolest thing they have done and if I see the interior rerun again ill go nuts! I mean that new silverado they lifted and put 35's on?? What a puss mobile! They needed to do an axel swap too!! maby correct the pinion angle!! HELLO!!! I want to see some fat guy crawling around under some 85 blazer in his driveway with oil and tranny fluid all over installing a 14FF and a D44 with a 3 inch body lift and 4" susp lift with 38's just after overhauling the T-Case and putting on a new oil pan gasket..oh wait thats me....
