    yeah this summer i should be able to lift it and put some bigger tires on but right now it has stock springs with 3inch blocks in back and some kind of helper spring that is giving me 3 inchs of lift. oh and i was woundering how you could fix a bent frame. i bent it going over a hill and some dumbass put a stump in the way and it pushed my drivers side front frame rail up about a inch and i dont think it twisted my frame if looked at it for a while and it seem that the front rail bent at the very front should i fix it or just leave it be.

    Agreed! I would love to get a hold of a nice clean K5 like that for a DD or just for mild 4 wheeling/camping trips. That's what my K5 used to be for, of course it wasn't that purdy:rolleyes:

    I wouldnt want to mod that rig. Looks too clean to hack and beat up. Wish mine was still clean like that. Buy another for a beater and DD that one. Sweet Rig by the way.

    Yeah, my 89 gets awsome mpg w/ the TBI 350. Last time I checked it was 16-17 .. something like that... it's been a while.

    As far as wheelin' it, .. you might have to get used to the little nicks & scratches, or stick to those sandy roads.

    I want to cry just thinking of that clean pristine vehicle being chopped and bobbed with 44's and a 512 cid caddy motor being dropped in it. LOL!!

    yeah my dad waz trying to talk me into putting a bb in it and put some 44 on it with a little lift. I told him to go buy his own truck but he could still give me the big block. If i put big tires on it ill be to tempted to use them

    My truck used to be really pretty. Now I think it's semi pretty, but after some rot repair and not being re-painted, it isn't shiny like his.

    P.S. Doesn't have those nasty aluminum rims on the 35's any more, got some nice 15x10 Black american racing wagon wheels with blue AND red pin stripes. Uber sekzy.

    That Blazer is too nice to wheel. I can't recall the last one I've seen that was that clean, straight and new looking...:bow: :bow:

    If it were mine i'd keep it just like that, and find a red headed step child K5 to wheel. Something you can beat like a rented mule...
