    Hard top, wish is had a soft top though, I got it from a family friend it has a nice new top end so it should be a easy fix up

    Nice looking Blazer. I want to get a k5 so bad and build it into a dune truck and off road monster. In the next few years hopefully.

    So the 6.0 is going in the K5? That's gonna be killer man. Wish I could find a decent K5 to play with.
