Anybody want it? H2O in everything, just had alignment, brakes all around, good body, drivers door was just aligned, but she sure sank quick. 6 inches became a couple feet faster than i could stop. She gulped water and quit, yes theres water in intake and block. And even with new battery, nothing comes on. Shes fried. Located in wilmington, nc, you want it, shoot me an offer!!!

oops!

It's a shame to scrap it, but you could replace it with a newer Blazer for less $$. I can imagine the smell that's starting to brew in it now...

if you didnt keep trying to start it after it died and didnt bend or throw a rod, just drain all the fluids, refill, pull plugs crank it a few hundred times change plugs, profit!

known many people sink trucks way worse then that. little water wont hurt anything if you take care of it quickly

If that is salt water, it might as well become a nightmare. Too bad your so far away or I'd tow it home.
