    Mine does ok on the highway. It's a 2.5L with a 4 speed. The speed limit is only 65 in Illinois though. I drove mine to eastern Tennessee this spring and we probably averaged 70 mph. I don't know how high it was revving though. I wouldn't be interested in pushing it much harder than that.

    That blazer will be a little different though. A lot of variables with gears and tire sizes and just the extra running gear of the 4x4 stuff. Mine is completely stock. Stock tire size also.

    He says it's the big 4 cyl. with the 4spd manual. Did some reading... if its the 2.5L Tech 4 (Iron Duke) It seems it's a pretty durable engine. Was wondering how that 4spd manual will do on the highway. Or any other opinions would be appreciated. $400 seems reasonable to me too. If it runs decent and looks decent. Thanks

    In 86 the "big engine" would've been the 2.8L V6. The 4.3L didn't come along until 1988. $400 is pretty cheap. Doesn't sound bad as long as isn't a piece of junk.

    Hi, New to the forum... another member suggested I talk to you regarding the 4spd manual trans that is in the 86 blazer. I am looking at one on Craigslist. And would appreciate any help with deciding if it would be a decent buy. It's an 86 4x4 with 120K on it. the "big engine" I am assuming that means the 2.5 its a 2 door, and he says it has a 4 spd manual trans. The vehicle belonged to his father who was the origianl owner. he is selling for $400 and says the only issue is a battery, and right front caliper is locked up.
    Thanks for your help.
