Another reason to keep your Blazer (if you can)

General Chat Chat about all things Blazer (and related vehicles). Off-topic stuff should be in the lounge, and all mechanical problems should be posted in the proper forum.

Score 1 for the "little truck that could" lol!!! A guy in town slid into a ditch with his big bad Ram 4x4 crewcab... I simply stopped and asked him if he needed me too pull him out and he said with a big grin, "that little suv won't be able too, but thanks anyway"... Well, I am here too tell you "this little suv" pulled him out He was amazed, asking all kind of questions, motor size, tranny, gears ect... I just shook his hand and smiled and said, "she's the little truck that can".....

Man, that's awesome! Congrats! We're on BS4-6 currently. I want to start paying down the house, but gotta start a college fund for my daughter first.

Hmmm, odd..... Not one single hoot? Holler? Ok, if we as proud owners don't want any "attaboy, good job, way too represent the club lol"...... Just kidding folks, these are truly powerful little machines!!! And many times they are truly underestimated at what they can do. My wife works with the guys wife I pulled out of that ditch and he wants too know if the Blazer might be for sale... He wants something "tiny, but strong for her too drive" LOLLLLL...... Time for me too "shake that tail feather" : ) Dang, if I had a posse like the wild west, lookout lol...

Yep, I impressed a guy the last day of hunting season who was driving a 1/2 ton Dodge crew-cab. We both got stuck a bit turning around at a gated road in the woods that had a 6"-8" of fresh snow on top of some places with ice underneath. It reinforced that they are tough and nimble little trucks.
