Hi, My name is Carlos and I just recently fell in love with off-roading. Last week,my friend and I went off-roading in his 95' Silverado with new 31" BF Goodrich All-Terrain Tires. I loved it as well as he. However, I don't have a car or truck. I was looking in the internet and I came across the K-5 blazer. They are awesome. Now, I want one and I noticed that they are relatively inexpensive. But, I have some questions. First, how reliable are the blazers on and off the road? Are they a gas hog? Are they somewhat easy to maintain and if not, are the repairs expensive? Please tell me anything you feel I should know about these cool trucks. Thanks.
