    "S-10" and "better" in the same sentence? Is this legal to do?

    Keep in touch with whomever you sell the K5 to. You'll need to call him back to come tow you out of whatever mud-puddle you get the S-10 stuck in. LOL. Seems a shame to sell it after doing so much work to it....you should keep it and enjoy it for awhile..maybe you'll have a change of heart.

    I just sold my $10,000 oops S10 I mean, I spent so much Dang money on that thing I almost gave it away to get rid of it. that pile cost me around $100 every time I hit the gravel and a little over $200 every time I hit the dirt... don't even get me started on mud, I am glad it's gone I love my K5 much more.

    I had an 87 s-10 blazer w/ 3" susp & 2" body on 33's. It was a tough little truck, until I blew up the 2.8, and the 4.3 I replaced it with. Stick with 8 cylinders.

    Maybe I will keep the k5 just to play with... but i have some big pressure on me to sell it... I want to go south and get a rust free one, i wouldn't care if it ran or not.. I can do mechanical, but i have found out i suck at rust repair.. I may be back, next winter... I gotta go fast s10 is faster... and newer(10 years) I can't afford gas for the blazer right now either...
