    What\'s and what\'s not a K5?

    Just curious to know if "K5" was some kind of option on the '89-91 full-sized Blazers and Jimmys. Or is that just a kind of general reference like "S10" or "A-body"?

    K5's are actually any fullsize Blazer from 69-88. 89-91's are V5's. All it is is a code number just like K-1500 is a 88-present 1/2 ton 4x4 truck and C-1500 is a 1/2 ton 2x4 truck.

    An S-10 is a 2wd baby blazer, while the S-15 is the 4x4. Something I didnt know until recently, if anyone is interested.

    Actually the S-10 is the Chevy Blazer (small one) 2WD or 4WD.

    The S-15 is the GMC Jimmy (small one) 2WD or 4WD. Then there were trim levels like tahoe and stuff.

    Actually .. the S10 is a Chevy... the S15 is a GMC.
    Additionally, even though they all said either S10 or S15 but (its been a long time since I dealt with them, so take it for what its worth) S=2WD and T=4WD

    If it sucks...it's not a K-5, if it's Badass, it must be a K-5. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    my mistake, I was thinking that "T" designated the GMC's, What you said makes sense now.
