    Great Truck — I love my truck it is fun to drive and being an ex military truck is very tough. It has a tbi 350 and an 4 speed auto in it. Right now it has 31 inch tires on it but im hopeing to have 33's and a soft top on it soon. The only bad thing is the fuel milage that is about 10 miles to the gallon but i will suffer the gas milage for the fun this truck has to offer.

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

    Pros: 4wd, good in snow, tough, fun

    Cons: gas milage

    In Its Day, A Great Vehicle To Drive But Outdated These Days. — Solid SUV for everything in its time. A lot of fun when you take the top off. A very capable off-roader, If you don't mind the MPG. It was built strong and almost nothing could hurt it, except the rock that I collided with. Living in a warmer climate the fun factor is high. Mine was carburated, I would highly suggest a fuel injected engine. There is loads of aftermarket support if you want to lift it or resore them.

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

    Pros: Recreational fun

    Cons: Gas milage

    Worst Truck Ever! — This truck was in really bad condition when I bought it. The frame was twisted, it had over 200k miles, 3 of the brakes didn't work, and only 2 cylinders were firing. I got the engine fixed, and the truck served me well.... until the brakes started on fire. VERY expensive to repair, so I ended up trashing it.

    Pros: ummm

    Cons: build quality, expensive to repair

    Been In The Family Since '94. — Started out as the family vacation vehicle. I inherited it after replacing a blown engine in high school. Can't do anything too crazy with it, but a good base for a later buildup into a capable hunting/trail rig.

    Pros: Fuel injection, 4x4, Silverado trim. Factory roll bar.

    Cons: Stock suspension, 14 bolt axles, minor body rust.

    I Really Love This Truck! — We have had this truck since it rolled off the showroom floor and it has been used everyday of its 21 year life! And it looks almost brand new too!! The one bad thing though is that I just reciently blew the engine and we put a new one in, but it's still a 350. The truck is completly stock also!

    Pros: Strong and reliable, good looking, etc. etc., it's great!

    Cons: The top is a little heavy and awkward to get off, the tailgate of this model has the tendency to crack on either side at the top about an inch down, but they can be easilly be fixed!

    The B - It's Awesome, It's Old, It's A Rust Bucket And I Love It. — I needed a truck but had a very tiny budget. I love the old blazers and broncos with removable tops - I knew exactly where to put my small amount of money towards something that would go to the dump (for the bathroom remodel) and make me proud: a 1987 Silverado Chevrolet Blazer. Need I say more?

    Pros: It's old, it holds everything I own, the radio works...

    Cons: Everything's falling off, none of the windows work, there's rust
    everywhere...

    87 Full Size Blazer Thats Nothin But The Truth — My 87 blazer has a good bit of rust, infact half the floor board and the rear body mounts are rusted all the way through. Still bone stock but when the pedal hits the floor the motor is screamin. i have run this truck through mud holes right behind jacked up trucks with 44's and lockers and all that after market stuff and didnt miss a stroke. The only problem i have had is the spider gears in the rear broke apart when i was power breaking it one night. Still does alot beter than most of those stock fords

    Owner for 1 years, 3 months

    Miles Driven per Year:30,000

    Pros: Strong motor

    Best Car I Have Ever Driven And No Matter How Many Other Cars I Drive I Keep Going Back — It is an easy to repair vicial when the US government isn't being evil and stoping the ability for me to by my parts or get my hands on it. The engine has over quarter of a million miles on it and it is still pluging away. The interior is still in amazing shape though the dash board top is getting a little dried and cracked. It asselerates amazingly expecially up hills, little cold to start but once you get it out of first gear there is no stoping it. Breaking is a little slow but to be expected with larger cars. Handles as good as any blazer and amazing in the snow and rain. Only gets 15 miles to the gallon on a good day now compared to the 22 it used to get in it's hayday. Back window still works! Tons of fun to drive, expecially in the back woods!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Lots of space and never lets you down if you take care of it

    Cons: Not the best gas millage and easy to flip
