    Besides Autotrader.com does anyone know where to find a good Blazer for sale? I'd like to find one that already has had work done to it. A site that offers pictures would ge great.
    Thanks in advance...

    This is going to sound totally ridiculous but just tell every family member, buddy, and your mechaninc (if he's independent, the delear guys wont give a crap) to keep there eyes peeled and CONSTANTLY check the paper. When our '81 finally rusted out to the great off-road trail in the sky we put the word out that we were in search of another K5. Nothing happened for a few weeks, then within a week, three popped up. An '83 with a diesel motor, an '82 with a new Good Wrench 350, and an '89 Jimmy with all that work you're looking for. We wound up getting two more, instead of one, the '82 and '89. Patience is key and don't buy it on an impulse.

    If you buy one that isdone by others it is harder to fix than if you spend the time to build it your self. Look for something that is strait and that is in good to great shape. If it has a lift and tires great but remember the more work that someone else has done it's twice as hard to fix than if you do it yourself. You'll have to do repairs on the trail when it brakes!!!!

    I found mine for sale on the side of the road. Figure out what you want and keep your eyes open. Dont feel obligated to buy the first one, espicially if you dont have alot of K5 experance. Ride in a few to see what you like and what you dont.
