Default Appraise the Blazer

So its time to start considering getting rid of the blazer. Here is the list of things I've done to the car over the years.


140K
• New Alternator
• New Rear Drums
• Sound system installed
150k
• Manifold and head gaskets
• Oil lines
• Brake pads (duralast golds)
• New Serpentine belt
160k
• All new bilstein shocks
• K&N CAI
• Switched over to synthetic oil, has run mobil 1 high mileage since
• New Cap, rotor, plugs, wires
• Radiator flushed
• New windshield wiper reservoir and pump
170k
• Outer tie rods replaced (duralast)
• Pitman and idler arm replaced, new bump stops (moog)
• Rear brake lines replaced
• New Duralast battery
• front differential and much of the 4 wheel drive system replaced
• new cv shafts
• Hardened u-joints
• Rebuilt 4l60e trans for 550 hp (shifts hard and fast)
• New shifter cable
• Minor cosmetic touches
• Brand new 30” BFG AT KO’s (amazing tires)
• Cleaned and re-lubed wheel bearings
• New rear main seal
• New key fob
180/190k
• 1 rear shock replaced
• Replaced brake pads
• New Raybestos ball joints

Aka I've poured a lot of money and time into the sob over the last 6 years. Good news is it runs and drives beautifully, the exterior/interior is in good shape, and should be maintenance free of anything big for quite awhile. I was going to post it up on Craigslist for around 3k obo. With the expectation of letting it go for 2500. Any opinions?


In other news is anybody looking for a blazer?

If the cosmetics are in great condition, maybe you can get more out of it.

You'ev got the right idea. They've all got high mileage but its hard to find them taken care of and rust-free.

I forgot the cons haha. Its got three small rust spots, all surface and the typical Illinois surface sub frame rust. Also the abs light is on because of a frayed wire on the driver side sensor and the ac compressor is in need of replacement. All minor things, but they are the things I haven't gotten to yet. Also forgot that I put a brand new EGR valve in, in the last 10k miles.
