Were those from a conversion company? I’ve never seen a diesel blazer. There is a 6.5 turbo diesel 1500 Z71 around here that same color scheme. GM didn’t offer the 6.5 in 1/2 tons did they?
I've got a '94 K1500 GMC Yukon 2-door with the 6.5TD and a 4L80E. It's six lug. A friend has a '95 K1500 Chevy Tahoe 2-door, 6.5TD and a 4L80E. It's also six lug.

They're rare, but they're out there. I think the 1000 made is way low.

Like centurion’s, they get rarer every time a newb sees one for the first time. I’ve seen people claim “only 100 ever made” in for sale ads.

Cleaning the garage and yard out and gettin rid of some stuff I built when I was bored. For the most part they're not negotiable. For sale or maybe trade ( not for other bikes or karts).

The "Go kart" that makes it look like 4 tires are floating around you.
Yes it runs and drives
It started off as a regular kids go-kart with like 5" tires. Couldn't have that negativity around me so I made 36" mud tires fit it. Custom "fab" work and recycled parts off a old police Vic (1998) it uses it's 5x4.5 hubs, brakes and bearings so the tires can be swapped out from mud tires to mustang wheels to 22s or what ever.
Hydro brake. One wheel drive and one wheel brake. Massive gearing so it actually is peppy and I've had it to 40mph.
Brand New 212 predator
Brand New torque converter
-- needs 35chain swapped for a bigger one as it binds
-- rear right bearing ( crown Vic) pretty much selling for what the tires and engine are worth.
$700
Not if it's interesting because of what it is or the interesting extra touches.
If I venture up there, I'll be inquiring about that Lincoln also.

I kinda like it. Buddy had about that year power wagon in college lifted on about a 37" tire. Uncomfortable as fuck to drive but still cool.

My boss had a Blazer with the 6.2 diesel back in the late 80s. I drove it from Greensboro, Ga to Dublin Georgia to get a fuel pump for a Cat.
Passing on a two lane road took some planning. Acceleration was feeble to say the least.:laughing:
A shop I worked at in highschool has a chevy diesel pickup, dont know the year.

Boss said go pick this up and take the truck, glow plug speach and all.


I get it on the highway and thought it was stuck in third gear so I pulled up on the shifter and threw that piece of shit into reverse by accident at 55mph.:homer:

Shit got exciting real quick.

Ran across this contraption on Facebook, a Trekker 7000e tow dolly looks like its missing the winch that's supposed to be at the top and half the jack off of the tongue but it is otherwise complete if you want to haul cars, may be missing the outriggers and "engine hoist" pole compared to this one: Trekker 7000E Dolly/Tow Rig - The Equipment Place

1964 John Deere 450 dozer in colorado $3500

starts up, but needs either a steering clutch or the drive clutch may need adjusted, not sure. My father owned these and passed away, not sure of the year either

It's missing the winch, but the piece that the rubber flaps hook to gets attached to your vehicle, then you winch it up to pick the front end up off the ground and put a pin in to lock it up.

I get that it's some sort of bastardized sling lift but I don't see how you get it far enough forward that it doesn't give you negative tongue weight without also beating the crap out of the vehicle on the trailer.

I found a couple others online but can't seem to find a pic of one in operation.

Near as I can tell it goes something like this:

Probably best used for towing scrap cars behind your Ranger or S10 :D

bet you just block the rear wheels on the towed, then back up the tow vehicle to push the front of the car up the ramped square tube, then pin it

That would probably work as well, but the other pictures of that model which I have seen do have a winch at the top of the tube and you can see where the cable is supposed to hook on to the part that the vehicle is attached to.

Uhh... :lmao:

One of a kind snowblowing rig. Clear your driveway in one pass. 2005 Ford F350 Diesel Powerstroke. 130,000 miles. Work truck, lumber rack over bed. runs good. Block heater, double studded tires on rims as well as summer tires with rims. Front bumper has a set up that allows a rack to be attached with 3 snowblowers across the front of the truck. A winch raises and lowers the rack to allow for height adjustment of the snowblowers. The snowblower rack is easily removed so the truck can be used for other applications. Truck and snowblowing set up offered together. Call with questions. I'm sure you'll have some :)

Never mind the snowblowers. That truck alone would be 20k+ here in NC.

I know why it is "One of a Kind" :lmao::lmao::lmao:

That abortion didn't clear the road it is pictured on, the Tardgineer just hopes the sucker that buys it does...

I have one of those snowblowers and I spend a quarter or more of the time clearing the chute.
