If you like the veh, and can find no major problems, the price is not that far off the wall. Sounds about right on mileage. Might want to take a look at alldata.

This vehicle is nothing more than a gussied up S,T Series Blazer/Jimmy (actually a T series because it's 4WD), so whatever's common for those, same as this.

Suggest you have the vehicle looked at by a professional mechanic and split the cost with the current owner so you don't overlook something.

THIS VEHICLE HAS BEEN AROUND AWHILE.....NOT A BAD RIG.
LET'S SEE...TORSION BAR MOUNTS, CV BOOTS, EXHAUST SYSTEMS, EGR VALVES, OCCASIONAL TRANSMISSIONS. HAVE SOMEBODY TAKE A LOOK AT THOSE ITEMS.

1994 is probably a throttle body 4.3 vin code Z engine, so it's also very simple.

A Chevy V8 with 2 cylinders missing .

True, could be either I think? I can't recall when they did the switch.

I know the S,T series (the whole magilla) had both the 4.3Z and the 4.3W from what I remember.

The W motor came on later as standard equipment on the P/U.

The truck parts catalogs/engine charts are pretty willy nilly with engine/transmission charts. The cars are pretty good.
