    I have decided to sell my dear 88 Blazer. It had been sitting for two years in the garage as I had difficulty getting into it after the two spine surgery's. So I put new battery's (2) in it yesterday, and I'm now able to clime in it so I got in and crossed my fingers hoping it would start. It's a 6.2 diesel and there was some concern about the 1/2 tank of old fuel. But I was comfortable that the fuel would be OK as I put in biocides and have a good marine water separator filter inline. Jumped in, touched the gas pedal to set the high idle, waited for the glow plug light to go out, and in the meantime the Carter high pressure electric fuel pump stopped whirring, turned the key to start, and varoom, it started instantly after 2 years. Horray for me! Pressed the power window switch's to lower the windows and proceeded to take a ride around the block (1.4 miles) even though the tag has long expired. I love that truck, and it will break my heart to sell it, but it has to go as we are downsizing.

    Features: Factory AC, power windows, power door locks, tilt wheel, cruise control, leather interior, factory alloy wheels (very scarce), self locking front hubs, factory tow package w/trans oil cooler, factory engine oil cooler, original owners manual, Carter high volume/high pressure electric fuel pump. New Monroe HD shocks (4 shock kit installed up front) front and rear.

    No lift kit or wackey suspension alterations. One small minor dent on the edge of the right front wheel well. Probably could be fixed with just a hammer, no filler needed. New rear window gut's. Works super smooth now. New driver side window motor. All the exterior rubber exterior window wipes are new. NO frame, floor pan, or rocker panel rust anywhere. Super heavy duty undercoating and sound suppression was applied when new.

    Millage: 130600 +/- 20 original verifiable miles. Ya'all have seen these pics as avatars but here are larger versions.

    Asking: $9,000. Put a couple grand into this truck (mostly small detail stuff) and you have a winning show vehicle.
