I love chevys for that fact that you can get anything and everything no matter where you live for em. The engines are easy to mod, easy to work on and they last forever. Im alittle biased... ive never owned anything but chevy and ive never had a problem with one that wasnt caused my driver error to be honest.

i have a 76 and a 78 bronco. cant complain about either of them. on the other hand i wheel with people with k5s and they are pretty reliable as well. other than the guy who is running stock axles with 35s is on his 3rd axle where as im running 36s on my stock axles and have been for about a year or more with no issues
The late 70's broncos are really stout if you build them right, even stock they are a strong rig. even if you get a newer one with the ttb in the front, you can just do a solid axle swap. The 351 windsors are the ones to look for also, the rest ae fine but I personally like the windsors for the reliability perposes. Good luck on finding what you are looking for!
id say i fyou go with the bronco get like a 78- 79. id say the broncos are better off stock, stronger axles same transfer case and also offer the t18( of course im a fan of the 205). if you r goign to build it the blazer is cheaper. you can get a 14ff for $100 and a cheap detroit for it. plus a boilt in dana 60 so no custom parts. you can run a big block small block, v6 or even inline 6 all on the same tranny. if your goignt o upgrade id go with the blazer. if not go with the bronco. they can fit 33"s with out any lift.
