New Sheriff in town

I practically stole it. This thing is nearly bullet proof for off-roading, comes with enough extra parts to build another blazer and is just freakin' tough as hell!

It's an 82 Blazer with an 89 or 90 front clip.

6" lift (no blocks), 35" super swampers, 4.11 gears, locker in the rear, fresh GM Goodwrench 350, adjustable shocks (duals up front), steering stabilizers, dual battery set up, extra everything (literally), dual exhaust, superwench locking hubs, and I'm sure a lot more I can't think of.

It has a little tranny leak at the front seal, they didn't replace it when they put the motor in. Even so, I filled it up and drove it home the nearly 240 miles last night! Got in at 2AM and I'm just getting ready to start the day........I'm tired!

Anyhow, I got it for $2800! I think it was a steal!

Re: New Sheriff in town

I just thought I'd let you know that isn't fair. Not fair I say.

That you made out like a bandit on that deal. I never run across those kinds of deals.

Re: Flex pics

I would get rid of the 82 front bumper it just looks goofy. I hate mine but it will soon have and 83 grill and lights on it. That and it makes me want to put my k5 together. [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img] Oh and great deal and good looking truck.

Bumper

I'll replace it when I buy a wench.

There isn't a rear bumper, so I'll have to replace that as well.

Re: Bumper

Forget it - you won't like it.
I've had 2, got rid of both of them, too much aggravation.
They never worked, cost too much, too much maintenence, just too much trouble.
No more wenches.

Get a winch for your truck instead, cheaper, no bitching, always there when you need them.

--- And the best part you can turn them off when you've had enough!!!!
