That is a great looking truck! I do like the color on the 88(?), but the 75 is just too cool of a truck! What color was the top? I hope you don't mind the dumb questions, but I haven't seen such a subtle and yet sharp looking 75 that hadn't been raped or hilljack engineered!! Hopefully I'll have mine running by summer so I can get out and enjoy the sun!!

I read the rules in the first post, I'm not sure why anyone would insult someones truck, they are all awesome. I really like Vile's Blazer's very nice, too bad your ex caused you to get rid of that first one you posted, it was very nice.

Anyway, I'm new to these trucks, I've always liked them, and have messed around with muscle cars for years, and I finally was able to pick up a 1985 K10 Silvarado for $1500. It already had Cat back exhaust, 33" Maxxis Buckshots, and very comfortable seats out of a 90's something Chevy van. Here she is (I'll get some more pics tomorrow...):

Well now I know I have a problem  ::)
I just bought another Blazer this weekend.
It's an 89 with a 4in lift rollin on 315/75R16's with 3/4 ton axles
Picked it up for $1000 and drove it home(well almost :( )
Until I blew a valve cover gasket at 75mph on the hwy about 70 miles from home.
When the gasket blew it poured oil on the exhaust and caught fire,by then I was stopped and got it out fast enough so no damage.Just the oil burning on the hot exhaust manifold.But I got it home,now job #1 fix oil leak!!!!Then go through the diffs(I smell gear lube  >:( ).Here are a couple of pics.

Nice lookin' blazer and a great deal--heck the wheels and rubber are worth what you paid. Good thing you got the fire out in time---on some of these newer suv's the aluminum engine block and components don't need much flame to completely melt.  My brother's Ford did...

That's why they call them Found On Road Dead, or Burnt to a crisp either way....

lol, we aren't certain, my brother would never admit it (he know's nothing about working on cars), but my dad told me that my bro changed the oil in the Expedition, and he left to go to the store 30 minutes later--parked it to go inside, then looked out and saw smoke.  It was too late.
Theory, my brother left a rag either on the exhaust manifold when changing oil, or on the intake or somewhere where it got too hot and WHHUFFF!  Since motors are now made of cardboard, plastic, magnesium, aluminum, and whatever else, it don't take much to barbeque.

You know, fire and my family just don't get along.  Here's my dad's garage three years back..
