Default What do you guys think?

So i'm selling the blazer, it really isn't the car for me, i'm a truck guy at heart and an S10 Blazer just dosn't cut it, it is 4x4, but its not a truck.
So i put it up for sale and i've had quite a few bites on it, and i've been lightly browsing for a truck.
I'm going to look at this truck this Thursday:





Its a 1994 Chevy 1500 Z71. Its got about a 3" body lift, 31" tires custom rear bumper, rear toneou (sp?) cover, its only got 124,000 and i can get it for about 1500 below bluebook.
I still wanna make sure theres nothing wrong with it and see if theres anything that needs to be worked on, but i'm hoping it works out, so i can have a nice truck
And whats funny is it will probably get better gas mileage than the blazer with a 5.7 V8 (surprisingly blazers get shitty gas mileage)

I'm not usually one to keep buying and selling vehicles, usually once i get a car i keep it till it blows up, so its a little weird selling the blazer after only having it for a couple months.

As long as the mileage isn't going to kill you (which you said it won't) I think its a great idea. That truck is way more badass than the Blazer.. almost like your brothers

looks like a longbed. I dont mind having the longbed, but are you looking for the short base or the long base?

That looks really nice! I wouldn't mind having one like that, but I'd have to have an extended cab for the extra leg room. (And belly-room... )
Get yourself a good locking bed-box, though, one that can be bolted in...

That truck'* pretty bada$$ if you ask me. I'd definitely hit it. The only problem I have with it is that it kinda looks weird with the long bed. If I had a choice, I'd get a short bed, but I have a feeling your choices are pretty limited..

Yea the long box is the only "issue" i have with it right now, i would rather have a short box, but a long box isn't going to steer me away.
The only thing that can hinder me by having the long box is it isn't the greatest for wheeling, but that will just make me wheel less, so i'll have less of a chance to break stuff

the long box is nice because you can put the locking tool box in the bed and STILL have a "short borx" thats open. i've made several friends jelious with the long box compaired to their short...
