1992 Chevy Blazer K with Silverado package, Black ext with gray int. 5.7L V8, 4x4, NO RUST. I purchased the blazer from a private seller that moved it here from North Carolina in not running condition. The blazer had a blown engine in it when it was towed to MI. I saw a pic of the blazer and it looked really nice so I went to look at it and didn't see any rust on the body or frame so I bought it. I put a used 5.7L v8 in it that has around 100,000 miles on it that I bought from a private seller who was a mechanic.I can't verify exact miles but the engine has always ran strong and doesn't make any unusual noises. The blazer has these extras on it chrome turf bars or steps under both sides, chrome tail light protectors, roof lights, hooks in the front, 3-4" body lift, 33" bf Goodrich tires, and a small brush guard. The thing that is so impressive is that the blazer is a 1992 and is still rust free, all floor pans are solid, door jams r rust free(rockers), frame is solid, and tail gate. Now for the bad...It needs a windshield, headliner is missing but looks okay without it, brake light stays on due to it being unhooked from the abs system(brakes work fine so I didn't look at it cuz I don't like abs anyway), has a dent on lower rear quarter just behind the tire pass. side, needs a wheel alignment that no one can do where I live(northern MI), and speedo is intermittent when u start out but usually comes alive after warming up so I used gps at first, will need a muffler soon it's jerry rigged from muffler back. I can't think of anything else wrong but if I do I will add it to the auction. The tires are just starting to weather and would prob. last another winter at least. The blazer looks good but isn't perfect my intensions were to restore it but never had the time to take it any further. You won't find a cleaner body on a blazer this old in Michigan I know because I have looked. The blazer is a head turner the way it is now so if someone stuck some money in it they would have a really solid clean blazer for many years to come. I never went mudding in it because it's all sand up here but I did do some puddle jumping and it's a riot! I have the blazer for sale locally so I do reserve the right to cancel auction. Any questions just ask. I have sold a few cars and trucks on ebay and have over 400 transactions at 100% feedback so rest assured I am not out to screw anyone this is a nice blazer.

The engine didn't get a wash after the last ride thru puddles but I will power wash before you pick it up.

For nine years, Diesel Power magazine has run the Diesel Power Challenge, this year's grindfest being "a week-long torture test that features seven events, nine trucks, 8,000 horsepower, and nearly 15,000 pound-feet of torque." The road to being crowned "the most powerful truck" starts with a dyno run, and then continues through the completion of a CDL-style obstacle course, an eighth-of-a-mile drag race while towing a 10,000-pound trailer, a quarter-mile drag race without a trailer, a fuel economy test in the mountains and finally a sled-pulling test through a 300-foot-long packed-mud pit.

What kind of trucks get into such a fight? Last year's winner, for instance - who upgraded his truck this year to prove he didn't "luck into the win" - drives a 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty with a 6.4-liter Power Stroke V8 upgraded with a custom intake, Elite Diesel triple turbos and a two-stage nitrous system. Another competitor has a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 powered by a 5.9-liter Cummins inline-six, upgraded with Garrett turbos, dual-stage nitrous, a seven-inch exhaust stack and twin fans built into the bed to cool the Sun Coast Omega transmission. The numbers on that truck: 1,255 horsepower, and 2,063 pound-feet of torque at the wheels. Naturally, as the image above might suggest, things don't always end well.
You'll find all five videos covering this years challenge below. A scene in the dyno video sums it all up perfectly: a competitor leaves his nitrous on too long and the crew is treated to some ominous poppings, he leans out the window, throws both hands up and shouts, "Amer'ca!"
General Motors has announced a recall of 118,800 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks due to the possibility of secondary hood latches not being installed at the time of manufacture. The affected vehicles are from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 model years, all of which were built between November 9, 2009 and August 28, 2012.
According to the official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, these trucks fail to "comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 113, 'Hood Latch System.' The hood may be missing the secondary hood latch." In other words, owners of these trucks could find their vehicles' hoods opening unexpectedly while driving.
The official recall campaign is expected to begin on January 17, 2013. Dealers will inspect the affected pickups and if a secondary hood latch is not present, one will be installed free of charge. Scroll down to read the official NHTSA report.
