My brother had a '93 Blazer Sport 4x4 he bought new. I put a few thousand miles on it myself. Great truck.

Do all of them have the spare tire in the rear cargo compartment? I absolutely hate this feature, is there any way around it?
I'm assuming they are pretty reliable since they are based on GM pickups.
You can get a tailgate 'swingaway' tire carrier. I've seen them, but don't know the source.
His was rock solid when he sold it in '05 with 200K mi's on it. The drivetrain was still factory stock and it ran great. Other than the sloppy steering it drove & rode fine.
There were, of course, several waterpump & radiator replacements (mostly from snowbank blasting), but we had that down to a 1 hour fix. (w/breaks!) The only other failures were the in-tank fuel pump @ ~ 150K and resealing the intake mani gasket about the same time. Soooo easy to work on....
It did have the "100K mile HVAC control wonkiness" that seems to affect all GM trucks of this vintage, but he just lived with it.
Sad note: I learned last week that it had drowned in the S. IN flooding this summer....
