A pair of 96 S10 Blazer 4 doors for winter and to pull my trailer to pick up GT’s and verts (and now turbo cars for Paul D :D ).

Geez, I need to update this.

Add:
2007 F150 FX2
1997 Ram 1500 ext. cab.
1994 GMC Sierra 1500 4X4 ext. cab
2-2009 Suzuki SX4 awd hatchbacks

I am going to swap out all but a couple of Swifts and the SX4’s for a newer 4X4 truck at some point.

just keep an eye on that 5.4 3valve….notorious for failed/ overfueling injectors ( bends rods easily) and those pesky cam phasers. common for breaking spark plugs off in the head….and those ford transmissions are junk.
how do i know? owned a ’05 Lariat screw with ALL those issues, plus more….bought it with 33,xxx , took it to the scrapyard at 193,xxx….was on its 3rd transmission….
if it seems like it has a miss, or a little stumble, get the injectors checked ASAP

I’m not keeping the Ford. I bought it at an extremely good price and I’m doing the cam phasers then selling it. I haven’t owned a Ford as a driver since the 80’s. I’ll be keeping the Sierra and SX4’s though
