83 bronco or 92 blazer

Hello,
I have 2 trade offers on my 91 ranger prerunner. I took the ranger on a trade for what I had hoped to be my full time rig( I had bartered for a 95 f250 4x4 farm truck.It seemed like a good idea, but I had no where near the amount of money to make it a daily driver. Even after spending two weekends at the junkyard).The ranger was already a daily driver so I took it hoping to get closer to what I need/wanted. So any advice on which would make a better full time rig and why would be greatly appreciated

I'd take the chevy, but I'm a little biased.

But since when did a 203 come behind a 700r4 in a 92 blazer? Somethings not right there, I highly doubt anyone swapped it in.

The words "jasper" and "engine" tell me stay away.

Based on looks the bronco is really nice (all white) with the lift. It looks like it had a soft top at one time because there are snaps installed.
The blazer is still stock. I havent been able to look at either one yet. The bronco owner looked at my ranger when I wasnt home and wanted to trade that night.
The blazer sounds better maintained but with out a visual inspection they are just words.

spidr: should i be looking for something tell tale on the transfercase?

dieselboy740 : I know what you mean, i have heard horror stories about over-boring the cylinders.

Hey howyadoin:

"When the fuck did this board become the "what piece of shit should I buy", "what piece of shit should I trade my current piece of shit for", or "what is my current piece of shit worth" zone??? It's a tech section....for tech"

Dumbass we are trying to use the technology that others have about this subject hence the title "general 4x4 discussion" . If we wern't going to discuss this it would be a monologue which is a prolonged talk or discourse by a single speaker, especially one dominating or monopolizing a conversation.
Or in your case a part of a drama in which a single actor speaks alone; soliloquy.


Don't worry I won't be on your precious fucking board any more since I do not want to be associated with anything that allows assholes like you!
GOOD DAY SIR!

what fucking truck should I buy belongs in the newbie section. Try reading some of the builds in this section, and think hard if your question belongs here.
