    Yeah...(head down)...got it five years ago, when I had a Taco. I sold the Taco, got the Prius. But my truck at the time was a '73 K5 blazer, 6" lift, 35s, full vert, bored out 350 and about 7 mpg....

    Nice! I think that's what @Prostar 190 has, if not very similar...in red.

    Oh, it gets worse. I sold that Blazer (for $$$). One of the bigger truck regrets I've had. Got a 1984 FJ60 Land Cruiser with 137k original on the clock. Flipped that after a year and got my 2000 Land Cruiser, which I spent the last 4.5 years building. Now...a Tundra

    Thanks. Hoping to stick with this Tundra for a while. It's comfortable enough the wife, and capable enough for me. Although, would love to get another full vert K5...

    Nice Blazer but no way that was a 73. That one is a slant nose and those didn't come out until 1980 and the grill is about 1990. Either way very nice Blazer.

    It was definitely a 73 but I know the PO who did most of the build used some later body parts (not sure why). He gave me the file for the frame off resto. I can’t take credit as he did 95% of it and his wife made him sell. Felt bad for him. I sold for almost double what I had into it.

    Only reason I said that was the front clip on a 73-79 had a square front and the cowl panel was part of the hood and had a different core support. That all changed in 1980 to a slant nose and the separate cowl panel. What all was done to the motor?

    Thx Liz.

    No worries. I honestly don’t remember but he had it down to the frame. The motor was a rebuilt 350 bored out 30 over. It had less than 5k miles on it when I bought it. I literally stole that truck. Worst part, the guy who bought it from me bought a house three blocks away. I have to see it every day... :(

    Migraine, one of the reasons I sold the Land Cruiser is because it was pushing 226k miles. Still going strong even on trips to the western sierras, Death Valley etc. But wife wanted something a little more comfortable and reliable as we may be driving up to Seattle in 2020 to see her family. Maybe tour around Oregon for a couple days coming and going. So I’ll be up in your neck of the woods so to speak

    I get that, the Tundra is by far the most comfortable vehicle I have owned in my long and sorted affair with horseless carriages. I did have a 2016 Platinum that I love, and a 2017 Audi Sq5 that I found rousing and a financial burden all at once. So I traded them both in for the 2019 Tundra, it was not meant to replace our daily work car (2015 Accord Coupe V6) but over the past 3 months of ownership, we have been using it the most.
    The Tundra has been a gobbling up any monthly savings I had from departing with the Audi. I am seeing a light at the end. Two changes left and we are done with modding for a while (unless a SC comes out for the 2019) I need not want, but need LARGER tires and Gearing since doing the lift on the Tundra and maybe a new rear bumper to match the front. Just waiting on the sliders from PnP to install the RCI skid plates, then it will be time to go brush pinstripe the Truck (I will cry a bit, I hate that first scratch)
    Enjoy Seattle when up here, someone needs to :)

    The old SR5 in the back ground will get it's new carb installed next week. I think there is over 300,000 on it.
