Sounds like the blazers are a good source of parts as both models share the same eng/trans/transfer case the rear of the m1008 came from gm with a detroit locker. A great upgrade for the front axle is a lockright locker not sure how much off roading you do. But with all 4 wheels turning its a pretty impressive rig.

I had 2 M1028's in the past that had the lockers in the front. In the future if I put a plow on the M1008 I will upgrade to a locker in the front.

I have a 6.2 in my 86 K10 extended cab. It has either a blown head gasket or cracked head, not sure yet. Work hasn't given me a chance to fix it yet. I've been working 14+ hours a day, 7 days a week. Good thing is when I do get to work on it, hopefully Ill be able to put a 6.5 intake and turbo system on it at the same time.

I got an '85 K10 Suburban down here in Mexico - GM Goodwrench crate engine with around 100,000 miles on it. Truck was originally in Virginia, sold and sent to Toronto (where I bought it) and now its about to get a new home in Houston.

I love 6.2's - so easy to work on.

Got an '83 GMC with a 6.2 and a 700r4.  Also have an '86 Chevy Beauville with a 6.2 and a TH400.  Looking for another engine to do a swap with in another rig, but don't have it yet.

I have a 1983 Chevy van with a 6,2 diesel. My Suburban has a 307 non-diesel though, for now.

Hi, New to forum. I just recently bought a 1985 GMC K1500 extended cab. 6.2, really good condition already but, have a lot I want to do to the truck.

I was just browsing this section and noticed CB42 said he has an 85 gmc k1500 EXTENDED cab. This sparks my curiosity, last time I checked square bodies were standard and crew cabs only. So CB42 I'd like to hear more about this. Some pictures would be great!

The extended cabs were aftermarket conversions. There's a thread here somewhere, I've been away to long. I have 5 of them and Zeig85 has a real nice one as well. I'd still like to see pics tho

AFTERMARKET CONVERSIONS?! Sweet fud ruckers! I would LOVE to see pics of these! I have thought about many times building an extended cab but never seen one.
