I'm not a Blazer/Jimmy expert, but my advice is the same no matter what. Buy the newest year and lowest mileage truck you can.

What is your budget for this truck?

look for something STOCK. dont get anything a younger kid has owned, and ask alot about the previos history.. find one that is around the year 98 or newer cause of the motor. pre 98 they used a different vortec setup and it lackes in the seat of the pants dept.. ask the previous owner how many times he used the 4wd, check for caked mud on the frame, you dont wanna buy something that has been beat on before. start with stock and build it yourself cause no matter how much money you think youll be saving by buying one lifted and whatnot youll just be buying someone elses problems..

btw the last one.. the white one looks like it would be your best bet.. i like that it was owned by an older lady and it probley has a posi rear and all.. if you go to look at that one look at the codes in the glovebox for a G80, g6 or g8 and zr.. the g80 would be the posi rear, and the zr is the suspension/tow package.. you want both those definitly if your gonna wheel with it

my advice as-to merlin's.. don't go for newest year and lowest mileage.. go for whether the owner kept up on routine maintainence or not.. that's what's most important when buying something used.. you could buy a truck with 20,000 miles that's a 2007, but that doesn't mean they weren't a hard 20k miles.. ask for service records if they have them..
