My new truck
Well people, over the last month i've looked at so many cars and trucks for sale it makes me sick. I was looking for a new daily driver and for some reason i bought a $800 '77 K-5 Blazer today.
And i'm totally against GM trucks for the simple fact that they tend to be shit.
This 77 has a newer 350hp/350 crate and a 4.11 diff ,and it flies.
Anyways, is there anything i should know about these trucks? This is the first 4x4 i've owned.
P.S. the trasfer case is fucked.

I hope you have a lot of $$ for maintenance. My friend has had 2 K-5's and my best friend in high school had 2 of them. They bought them cheap and spent 3-400% more on fixing them before they finally ended up selling them.
Maybe other people have had other experiences....if you're using it for your daily driver...hehe....good luck.
should've bought an old honda accord or civic....or an older toyota if you wanted an older daily driver.

My plan with it is to drive it until it falls apart. I won't be putting too much money into it. Pretty much just new spark plugs and thermostat.
Right now in the paper i see someone's parting out a '85 K-5 Blazer for $200 but the transfer case, radiatior, etc. won't fit a '77 right?

The truck it's self isn't worth the 50 bucks to have it crushed. It could use new doors and the rocker panels got rust holes 5 inches wide. It does have a new hood though.
The body sucks but the power train is awesome.
I think it's got a 4 inch lift? with 35 inch tall tires.
