Re: new car :)
First of all !!! You must PROMISE to Never, Ever, Ever... Call a K5 Blazer a CAR [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]
You should be ashamed of yourself[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
You must now pray to the fourwheel gods for forgiveness.
There is a ritual for atoning for your sin, it involves getting naked, covering your body in axle grease and 80w gear oil, then you must wear a hub cap on your head, and a timing chain around your neck, and dance in the light of a full moon, while chanting
"Forgive my ignorance all mighty rock gods of the fourwheel world"
Once you atoned for your great sin,
Then look for a 87-91 K5.
These are still solid axle front ends, these are MUCH stronger than the 92 and newer IFS front ends.
And very importantly in 87 and newer they went from Carburetors to "Fuel Injection" this is a BIG DEAL you want, make that, NEED fuel injection[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
These K5's can be found for $5k- $8k depending on condition.
32x11.5 tires will fit without rubbing as long as your wheels are no wider than 8"
