    it's sweet! i don't see what sucks a$$ about it, maybe the body lift and blocks but that's easily fixed.

    <font color="green"> If you're going to get a longbed I'd hold out for a 3/4 ton, or even better yet, a 1 ton... Looks like a nice truck though, the lift is run of the mill, but I wouldn't say it sucks. It's just a lift that's there to look good, not neccessarily perform better than stock. </font color>

    I'm not really saying that the truck sucks...it's just that there are blocks in the bach thats all. No harm intended.

    This is an Alberta, Canada truck and was rust free from new.

    That should read it was rust free when new... /forums/images/icons/grin.gif Alberta is as kind to vehicles as Michigan is...

    Looks pretty good for where its from. Body looks straight. But I would hold out for a 3/4 or 1 ton. I prefer short bed vs long bed. Make sure you be patient and buy as close to what you want or you will be wanting MORE!!

    Ha, that's exactly what I was thinking Rene.

    It is a good looking truck, but you could get a straight K30 for much less than that, and put the rest of the money into a good lift etc.. Don't pay for a pretty paint job unless its gonna be a street truck, you'll be kicking yourself after you come home from a wheelin trip with your purdy paint all scratched up..

    well luckly i have a neighbor that can do it for me..hes not a expert painter or anyhting but paints trucks at his work..my dad had him spray the new bed he put on his truck, and it came out pretty good! the box had dents all over it so it kinda ruined it that way, but it was rust free and thats all my dad cared about! but i would just have my blazer sprayed black or something nothing fancy, yet would look ok...but i wount be usin the blazer i have now, in less i replaced the floor..but that would take some money..speacialy the back section..it needs a whole new floor and rockers to.. /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Looks real nice...for a daily driver! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    No more 1/2 ton stuff for me. I'm thru with repairing those axles.
    Everything I get now has to be either 3/4 or 1 ton. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
