    Default snows new vehicle

    So i have been without a vehicle since October. Using my moms 98 explorer with almost 300k miles to get back and forth to work at night.

    I finally got my income taxes back in and took my check and got this for a family friend. I still owe $400. I paid $1100.

    It;s a 1996 extended cab s10. 143k miles. 5 speed. 4.3 vortec Needs a 02 sensor. It just had new tires put on. So far i like it. Nothing fancy.

    4.3 is a beast motor! Looks like it has a lot of potential.

    Default S10

    Ive got a 96 4.3 vortec vin x and that thing has 4 o2 sensors on it. They make great vehicles just have problems with fuel pressure regulators and the popet injectors are crap and get clogged. 60-80 bucks for the regulator and 300 for new style spyder injectors.

    Yeah I wanted that front end! I was looking into the aftermarket lights and they are proud of those things. LOL All the blazer parts go in these things can usually find some leather seats pretty reasonable in the junk yard since they made 14 million of them.

    that my friend is a nice looking truck. probably need to ditch some of the bling but Red of those trucks look sexy. Mines beat to shit on one side and it still actually looks good.

    if you can find some aftermarket envoy that look better, that might be a good route
