PostSubject: My newest ride. The ZR2.   Mon Jun 06, 2011 10:05 pm

So I have been looking for a vehicle that would be a good do all type of vehicle. After looking at price, parts availability, and what I considered to be the ultimate small truck, I picked the Blazer ZR2. It had 4WD factory lift, well equipped, and 3/4 of a 350ci engine. I started with looking high and low on ebay, Craigs list, and local news papers. I found this one in Manchester for under 2k.
It needed both front lower ball joints, idler arm, and and a passenger rear caliper. It had more codes than I have ever seen on a car, but it started right up, and got me home over 50 miles away in a rain storm, so it was worth every dime. It now needs a vave body for the transmission, and a radiator, and front axle seals to be mechanicaly sound. Beyond that, it needs a rear 02 sensor, and seconday air pump.
The ad pic from Craigs list that got me hooked.




Here she sits today.

I had been Tom. But I wanted a diesel blazer, and the only one I found in my price range had 300k on it and owned
by a kid who had owned it only a month. Surprised scratch

It's only been two days, give it at least a month. I told you, you should have bought that Caddy from Paul.

If he didn't have to fix something, he would sell it and buy something that needed fixing.

Nevermind.

I really didn't get the codes thing.

Speaking of codes, if you shop at Advance Auto Parts I have a super secret code for a good discount.

Welcome to the C/K-S/T Truck section. Smile
