Owner Comments:  My name is Tom Obert, I live in Columbus Ohio, and I have had this truck since 1997.  When I got it, it had a 6.2 diesel, 4 speed, and loads of torque...but I hated the smell.  Around 1999, my then eight year old son and I transplanted a new 350 gasoline engine into it.  I wheeled it for a long time, thereby tearing up was was a pretty straight truck.  I quit wheeling it around 2004 and began to restore it.  Exterior wise, I already had the 1991 Blazer front clip on it, but I had to put two new bedsides on, new inner and outer rockers, doors off a 1991 Suburban (PW/PL), new inner fenders all the way around, one new front fender and a new cowl hood.  I also installed the lift kit, new 16.5" Eagle wheels mounted on 35" BFGoodrich tires.  I also installed a cloth seat, carpet and overhead Shelf It console.  Future plans call for TBI, 700r4 transmission and A/C.  Thanks for looking!
