Hmm... I do plan to wheel it lightly.. maybe to the Mounds a couple times a year, and maybe Silver Lake.

But after hearing about the ball joints, and all of the front end suspension issues... Maybe I would be better suited in a XJ.

For whatever reason, I have just always like the styling of the 2 door blazers.. But i think an XJ would be more reliable and cheaper to mod.

Ideally, I want a cheap DD that can hold up to casual wheeling, able to run til the wheels fall off, reliable, roomy enough for girlfriend, fishing equipment, tent, sleeping bags, and a 140 lb bulldog. The search continues (and probably over to the XJ market)

XJ's are just as gay as ZR2's. You'll still be a fag.

Will do, thanks for the useful info. I haven't ruled it out as an option.. I just like to thoroughly research things before I buy.

Your blazer looks sweet. BTW, is that your "Z of the Month" on the front page? If so, congrats.
