Long term Reliability question

Hi, I'm going to be living in St Paul MN and know i need a 4x4 for some of the snow we get up there (my RWD volvo won't cut it). I'm curious about the long term reliability of a 1998-up blazer/jimmy 4x4. What are the problems to look out for, what type of maint needs to be done on these, and at what point in miles do they just go downhill?

Should I get a blazer/jimmy, or land rover, tahoe or durango?

Re: Long term Reliability question

I have a 1998 S-10 truck with a manual tranny and the only problems I've had since I've owned it was with the coil, distributor rotor and one issue with the 4x4 actuator. I fixed the latter with a 4x4 posi-lok cable.

Aside from that you might have issues with balljoints, which seems to be a common problem.
