K5 Kicks A$$! — Loose steering on the road. Took a plow like a duck to water. I like it's looks. Rust ate this truck up! If you are looking at buying one. Look at the back gate, L & R posts on the gate, the spring between the body & the gate for rust. I rebuilt this in 1996 from the frame up. I got poor advice for undercoating. If I did it again, I would have primed & painted the frame w/ multiple coats.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: GREAT for plowing! Best turning radius=EZ to get around in tight spots.

Cons: Mileadge is 6-8 MPG

Work Horse — this truck was Very powerful 4x4 v8 big block. it did need a lot of repairs but thats because the former owner didnt take very good care of it it needed new motor mounts new muffler system the motor mounts were rotten enough that just the smallest touch of gas the motor would lift up and hit the shifter into neutral. after we painted it it looked good black but the interior needed a lo of repairs in the back. this truck was not cheap in gas but u cant complain with the amount of power it had. but this car is mainly for offroading.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: big and powerfull good for pulling trailers

Cons: very weak body

My 88 K5 Blazer — very big engine will not die. axels way to small for the amount of pressure on them. kinda sluggish. pop top is very cool. alot of fun to drive. easy to lift. it gets about 14 mpg but its a 350 you cant expect alot. handles very well for a big car. prolly due to how wide it is.

Pros: awesome

Cons: sluggish

"the Antichrist" — Got it with 200,000+ miles on it. Replaced the clutch and kept it tuned and she ran, four-wheeled, and performed like a champ. Big and bulky, not a sportscar, and ugly as sin, we affectionately dubbed her "the Antichrist". Performance: Big and bulky, not meant to go fast or be flashy Build Quality: Ran solid at 200,000+ miles, 4x4ed like a champ, etc. Appearance: Originally a good, tough looking truck. Even better with a primer black 'paint job', mildly aggressive tires, a few dents, and tons of mud. Interior was in good condition, but worn.

Pros: Durability, longevity

Cons: No air, short on ammenities, typical old-beat up-4x4 issues.

My 88 K5 — Hey guys, this is my 1988 CHevy K5 Blazer. Bought it off a guy on bargain news for 1700 cash. When I got it, it had an oil leak but I put a new Drain plug on the oil pan and the leak went away. Thats just a temporary fix though. Im putting a whole new oil pan in it soon. The body is in GREAT Shape for its age. Most of the K5s that you see now aint got much of the body left on it. There's rust spots starting around the fenders and a little bit of rust on hte bottom of the tailgate but its very minimal. The truck's got 140,000 miles but still runs pretty good. Things are starting to go on it but i expected that just because of how many miles are on it. It can get prety expensive to drive this sometimes, cuz the gas mileage aint that great, but i dont realy care about that cuz its realy fun to drive. I take it 4 wheelin whenever conditions are good.

Pros: The shape that its in

Cons: little things are starting to go on it

Its Good To Go Off-roading — The Blazer is good for off roading but it sucks everywhere else. The engines are terrible and you dont want to buy a used one.

Pros: Off-roading

Cons: Its slow and loves gas.
