funny you ask. this truck is actually on its second engine, replaced at 142k. however it was a farm truck before i owned it, and treated like one. my uncle bought it new in 95, died in 96, and his sons let their workers drive it around for their excavation company, and some farmhands drove it around as well. one of em was driving it down the highway and it blew up, not forsure what happened, but when i looked at the next change oil sticker it said 132,000 and the truck had 142 on it when i got it with the blown up engine, so im thinking that had somethign to do with it. as far as reliability, ive heard these can be very reliable, just relocate the pmd under the front bumper for 200 and you're golden.OP that is one clean, great looking rig. I still own a half ton in this body style and prefer it over the 07.5 + style.
***On a side note, have you had much trouble with the motor mechanically? I have always heard that these motors are junk and have lots of issues. I wonder if this is true or if the majority of the problems come when people try to hot rod them?
look for an old blazer with a 350 or tahoe with the 6.5. or get one of the military blazers for cheap with the 6.2....hmmmm well my plan is to make a mild hunting/off road rig so Im not pounding the Dmax down trails and though mud, and Ive been learning towards 80's gasser GM, Older Cummins, or possibly an old 7.3, but did know if the 6.5 would make a good idea.
