unless you're in or near austin, then you have stupid drivers...both my trucks got backed into on the same day. my '92 has been hit 3 times now, none left any significant damage but it's ridiculous, and the poeple tailgating around here is unreal

Default S-10 blazer

Hi luv ur truck! I scraped 1 of mine just like it last year. It was by far my favoret 1 i have had it was a 93 2dr 2wd 5spd i had it for 4 years it was droped 2-3 had z28 rims on it i went to change the oil in it had her on jack stands when i went underneth her pulled the plug the pass side stand went through the fram rail n allmost crushed me. After that I stoped driven her striped it 4 parts n scraped the shell. I would like to get a nother 1 from Texas n build that 1 again. I have had lots of them there the best trucks around. I bought my wife's 91 4 door from Texas 5 years ago n it's still in grate shape. I had to get a new interior because it was badly sun baked she loves it. I still have the 1st s-10 blazer I bought when I was 18 it's in pieces in my garage I have n lt1 out of a 95 camaro 1 day i hope to finish it. I just wanted to say how much I like ur truck it's nice.
