They're all pretty much the same in that generation. Generally (as is with all vehicles) the newer you go the less problems you will have, but it will usually cost you more.
I have an '01 and haven't had any major problems with it (knock on wood). All minor stuff which were all fairly common problems with the Blazer.

Love my '99, I can still claim that both of my cars are from the 90s.

I got a 2000. Bought it after deciding I like the 98+ Dash and front end. I knew I would have swapped both if I got a 95-97 since it didn't look as good to me.

Agreed. I don't like the look at the 95-97 front ends. Even the 98's were a bit different from the final design. I wasn't a big fan of the 98's either.

What's visibly different from the 98 front ends compared to the 99+ front ends?

yeah Sisk, what's different between my '98 and your '01? beside the mirrors on your '01, which have a "true" fold-away design, compared to the "half" fold-away design of mine, i can't think of anything.

look, i still can't see the difference, can you see the difference?
