    I got a present today- my cousin is moving and she decided to give me her truck for helping pack!! Not really in that great of shape but it was free... 1991 K2500, ext cab long bed- drivers door needs some work- hopefully new bushings will fix it. Transmission slips. everything else is in decent shape and works good.

    So here are my options-

    part out the truck and keep the t-case for my blazer

    fix the tranny and door, clean it up and sell it for $3500-$4000 to put lots of new stuff on the blazer

    Fix the truck and use it for a hauling/tow rig- I have a 2002 1/2 ton right now and would really like a 3/4 ton

    So any thoughts??

    id almost say ditch the 02 and put some money into this truck. but I prefer older trucks. Im sure the 02 is alot tmore reliable then the 91 will ever be

    Well the 02 is my daily driver- lifted, modded, stereo, etc. and I really don't want to give it up. I think I will cannabalize the 91 for blazer parts then make a truggy out of whats left- new option I came up with this morning.
