Hey guys, 1st post here I have been redoing an 86 K20 with a sizeable lift on it. I took the 3" body lift off it already and it is still up there. I really want to run power steps on it but it doesn't look like anything is out there. I would be OK with Tubes but wondering if there is anything that looks cool and can handle my fat ass. I'm 6' tall and 350# but my girlfriend is 5'2" so we need something so she can get in the truck and something that wont rip right off when I try to get in. I really don't want to have to do too much fab work. I just mounted the cab with all new rockers and cab corners. Pulling the cab is not an option at this point.

The first problem is that the car was sitting for at least 3.5 years and when i went to try to crank it this morning, the starter did kick for a second, but now we've lost ALL electrical power as if there's no battery. Battery is good though.

    Previous to that about 2 years ago at least it would crank, but no fuel pump, which, now that i think about it, this may be related to above, but one step at a time.

 NOTE: 1) i can provide pictures AND scan in anything from the service manual----i just don't quite know how to "read" the service manual/diagrams.
2) My electrical knowledge/ability is not that good, but i'm willing to learn.

Folks I need some more help....

First, thanks to all those that have helped me in the past.  This is the only forum where I can get correct, actionable information!

So...I had a problem with the floor rusting out in my truck.  After removing carpet, repairing the sheet metal, coating and whatever, I thought I had the problem 'cured'.  I expected external moisture was the problem.  But it isn't...

The A/C condensation is running down on the inside, instead of the outside.  I couldn't tell this when the carpet was installed and in fact I didn't even notice it. 

Can anyone give me some advice on re-directing the condensation from the evaporator core outside, instead of running in on the floor?

Thanks, david. (truxson)

Hey all, my first post here but have been reading the forum for years, and has always been very helpful. Thought Id reach out to this group and get your opinion on a dilemma I have on interior color.

Background
I have a 1973 Chevy Blazer that Im fixing up. Goal is NOT to restore to show truck, but rather restore to what is close to original looking and drive it for fun.
Do not have a top (and in no hurry), currently black rhino lined that needs to be repaired (along with new floor pans first), and aftermarket seats that Im removing.
I do not want to put carpet in the truck, just in case I get caught in rain (it is garage kept, but really want to allow dirt in there if needed)
I plan to put shoulder belts in (to the roll cage), and need to buy my seats to do so. My dilemma is interior color.black or beige/tan (which impacts rest of interior)
See below link to the seats Im looking at (want opinion on which style you think is best with 73 Blazer also). Im done going down the route of finding old seats and re-upholstering
Black 1 - https://www.jegs.com/i/Scat/942/80-1550-51L/10002/-1
Black 2 - https://www.jegs.com/i/Scat/942/80-1400-51L/10002/-1
Beige 1 - https://www.jegs.com/i/Scat/942/80-1550-54L/10002/-1
Beige 2 - https://www.jegs.com/i/Scat/942/80-1400-54L/10002/-1

Color Impact
The interior color decision impacts the seats, middle console, floor/bed rhino line color, interior door panels, and dashboard

Eventually for my exterior color I plan on going with Orange. See reference photo I like of exterior (not mine, just pulled off of internet). https://www.streetsideclassics.com/vehicles/1005-dfw/1973-chevrolet. Note that this truck has black interior, so if I go with black interior as my decision, Ill pretty much copy this. See this link for beige pulled off well (though it has carpet)... https://www.barrett-jackson.com/Events/Event/Details/1975-CHEVROLET-BLAZER-CUSTOM-SUV-125314

Black Interior Pros
Easy to match color of all interior elements
Rhino line will look good
Hides dirt easy

Black Interior Cons
Could be very hot in the summertime with no top

Beige Interior Pros
Like the light look
Cooler in the summertime with no top? (not sure if this is still true with vinyl in summertime, no matter what color)
Goes well with orange exterior

Beige Interior Cons
Hard to match all interior elements colors (might be different beige/tan shades).
Rhino line floor may not look good
Shows more dirt

So overall would like your opinions on carpet vs. no carpet, seat choices, and my color dilemma

Thanks!

I have a 1986 Chevy K10 and Im wanting to put a 2.5 suspension lift on it (skyjacker).  I was wondering if anyone had pics of their trucks with a 2.5 lift.  It seems the most common is either a 4 or 6.
