Fun Suv. — This was my first vehicle. I had it during high school and drove it up untill I hit the ditch and did a back flip. It had a 350 with an RV cam with the 3spd auto. The previous owner switched to 2.73 axle ratio's to pull his sleds to the mountains and save on fuel. It had 3" resprung springs and had 31" tall tires. It was a good reliable vehicle. I was young and had some starter issues untill I figured out that sometimes you need the shims! We used the 4-bolt main block in my brothers S-10, the motor on my profile picture.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Like any fullsize Blazer, good for wheelin.

Cons: Short wheelbase vehicles are unstable.

Not A Great Vehicle By firstchevy

More dislikes than likes. Not too much power, too little for the poor fuel mileage to compensate for. Other than recent problems it did its job fairly and really no complaints about the 4wd. That act... Read More
