The shop next to mine. The owner just pickup a 92? maybe a bit newer Tahoe 2 door, 4 wheel drive. Very clean but 200,000 miles. It will have a new tranny in it, since thats the problem. He was talking about wanting $3000. Unfortunatley it's in Northern Cal. I'd buy it but I've got a K5.:)

K5s are pretty cool. They don't make SUVs like they used to. Everything is pretty much all plastic now :(
200k on that Tahoe is a lot of miles but the price is fair.

I may be selling my Diesel GMC Jimmy. I still haven't decided yet, but I'll let you know. I'm putting a transmission in it right now.

out of all those trucks you listed the Ford bronco or the K5 woould be the only ones I would look at.
The first two sit low to the ground have crappy IFS front suspensions and they drag *** for 4 wheeling. Everytime I go hunting there is usually one thats stuck or hung up because of low ground clearance or crappy street tires. Not to knock on the IFS blazers but they arent that great of a off road vehicle in stock form

I am leaning towards the 5.8L Bronco :D They are after all the cheapest. My trouble is finding one with less than 100k miles :(

Ive been trying to teach my dog to drive for months, does the GMC work better than the ford?

The ergonomics of the GMC interior certainly helps in the training department. :)

Another one you might consider is a Plymouth trailduster or a Dodge Ramcharger, they come Full time 4wd, all dana suspension with lockers, 360 or 440 motor with a 727 automatic trans. all factory, very reliable and cheap cause people don't seem to know that the tops come off like a K5, plus they use the same parts as the regular dodge pickups for engine and trans parts.

I like mine.

Here are some pictures. The only difference is now it doesn't have the running boards and it has 33" BFG tiresd on it now. It's a 6.2L diesel w/ a newer GM 700r4. It has 129k miles on it, with power windows, locks,rear window, cb, and A/C that works.

Make sure you get the one that has the bigger hubs. In some years they had a small lug pattern hub. Stay away from those hubs or if you get a good deal on it change out the front hubs. Not many trail dusters out there but they are good 4x4s.
You can find decent broncos that havent been beat to death but asking for less than 100 000 well you may find one but youre gonna pay a premuim for it jsut because people will think its worth x amount more. My old GMC has 340 000 mils on the original motor still runs. the tranny was rebuilt at 160 000 and its still going strong. As long as the seller can prove all the maintenance was done I woudlnt be afraid to buy a higher mileage truck as long as it was maintained.
I got a new truck thinking that i wont have problems and at 72000 miles the motor took a crap. i maintained it it just was a bad motor. I rebuilt it and it runs great now. I pan on getting at least 200 000 out of it.

Already a member. Actually bought it from a guy who was a member as well. He really took care of it. I love driving it :D

Do you have a bronco too ?

the dual steering stabilizers are a nice touch! keeps the TTB better aligned and less squirely on bumps.

i might also recommend wider wheels fo ryour tires. it looks like you have 35x12.5R15 and the wheels look like 15x7

Yeah I'm not sure what the size of the wheel is ... guy told me they were either pro comp or american racing wheels. Looks like you can see / tell a lot from pictures :eek:

Yep, I was lucky to find this one. It only has 98k miles and it's been really taken care of. Everything works in it which is hard to find in a Bronco :hurray:

Nice. That doesn't look like 6" and 35's. But pictures never do it justice. Wheels are most likely 15x8. Fullsizes are cool, you don't see many around. Atleast not around here.:punk: I love my K5.
