I ended up getting a Blazer...

Hi there. Well, the WJ was a "flood Jeep" and the seller flaked out, so I got a 1993 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer Tahoe LT. Do y'all still love me?

Going through all the normal tune-up items now.

Super clean, no rust? Around here there's not a single one that doesn't have rocker/lower door rot, or missing/hanging door panels (idk why?). That's a nice one, Tahoe LT too. Nice find. Cheap?

Cool! My last vehicle was a (2nd gen) S10 Blazer, great vehicles.

Get new leaf packs for the rear, that sag sucks! You'll get much better mpg's with a slight forward rake on those things.

Other than possibly giving up a bit of capability stock vs. stock, you'll probably be happier with the blazer. Looks nice and clean, good score!

i haven't driven a single s-10 blazer that i actually liked in any way shape or form. one of the worst platforms i've ever driven. also has terrible wheel bearings, horrible rear axle feel, the ifs is junk, the 4.3 is a dog, and the auto trans is one of the worst i've ever had to deal with.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

My last vehicle was an s-10 Blazer and I loved that thing! Newer body style than yours though (98). Only reason I got rid of it was it was rusting away on the body in very expensive to fix areas. A lot of people on the Blazer forum loved those body styles. Congrats!
