98 Blazer with 6.5 turbo

I found several police 6.5 turbo 2 door Blazers for sale. I haven't seen them in person and was wondering what the drivetrain was? Are these 1/2 tons even though there diesels? They all have about 150K on them, but I bet they will action really cheap because the interior are not very good.

I think you mean tahoe. They I believe are considered a 1/2ton. I know someone that has a 95 diesel, 10 bolt rear axle and what not. Gears I believe 3.73.

Re: 98 Blazer with 6.5 turbo

yup. most state police agencies use either tahoes or burbs. more room for the bad guys and still room to relax and eat a donut. the vast majority are 1/2 tons becasue they just dnt need anything more than that. as a half ton it liekly has the 10bolt rear end, but some will have the tow package for hauling police boats and what not and thoise might have teh 14SF

Re: 98 Blazer with 6.5 turbo

I did mean 2 dr Tahoe, although their still Blasers to me. I know they did use some 10 bolts behind the deisels, but I would be suprrised if they would take the abuse. I am still thinking about getting one (even though the miles are 150k, which is a lot even for the 6.5) if I can pick it up for 500 to $1000. It's a rural WY gov action, so they might go cheaper than that.

Re: 98 Blazer with 6.5 turbo

If its cheap, that makes it all worthwhile because the amount of money you would have dumped to get it, can actually get you mods now. I would really like to get another 2dr tahoe for dirt cheap.... Im talking less than $4k but that won't happen.
