    Great old Blazer, and I admire the interest in keeping it as it is. However, this truck IS built from an era of fantastic trucks. Consider further that the short wheelbase only adds to its appeal as a plow truck. If someone here is likely to put a plow on it, why wouldn't that person be you? You own the truck. A BRAND NEW blade on there would work flawlessly, even if modern mounts have to be altered. There's nothing saying any truck has to be abused as you fear from plowing. The hood & cap have paint issues anyway, so you can't be concerned about a few scratches from low branches. I can see you having great success with this truck, and face it -- you know this truck!

    I dont see you getting over $3k for the truck. If I was you I would put a plow on it and use it.

    Sorry

    While the blazer seems to be in nice shape it is not really commercially viable. I have a Western plow and Mount for that year vehicle that I would part with was all I was saying. Meyer has a ok plow to. good luck with your endeaver.

    I expect that's going to be the prevailing feeling. It has much more usable value to you than actual selling value. That truck could make $10k in a winter for you without hesitation.

    Don't take this the wrong way, just as constructive criticism from someone who absolutely loves the pre-91 Blazers & 'Burbans. I understand that this truck has no rust issues and is from Cali, but it has paint issues, the p/s door is real rough, although clean the interior shows quite a bit of wear, and the truck looks to have a early to mid-90's Goodwrench Reman motor. True it is in better shape than many of that vintage, but if I were you, I'd put a blade & hitch-mount spreader on her and make 2-3 times what you are asking for it. I think you might find it very difficult to get even close to a $5000 offer on it. Like I said, please take no offense, I'm not looking for a fight, just offering up some advise. Best of luck.

    You know?
    I REAL APPRICIATE all of the Opinions that you GUYS have throw out on the Blazer!
    But,I DID NOT ASK For OPINIONS,of How i Should use MY OWN VEHICLE!!!
    A Buyer or Purchaser,or SWAP is more in the Line of what i NEED!!!
    THANKS

    Welcome to the world of unsolicited advice, and no, you don't REAL APPRECIATE anyone's opinions. Do you know exactly what you got here? Instead of people simply saying that you're on drugs thinking you're gonna get 5k for it, they've all suggested ways to get the most value. So before you think you're gonna come in here and pi$$ all over people who have taken time to play your game, shut up & take it, or find the nearest door.
