After a brief negotiating process and a quick transfer of funds, Popejoy was in possession of the title to the nearly stock 1986 Chevy K5 Blazer. From that point forward, it was game on. His objectives for the buildup were clear: Keep it simple, strong, and totally bling-less. Overall, it took five months of turning wrenches and spinning sockets in his free time to accomplish that goal. The end result is a no-nonsense rig with a lot of swagger and a beefy drivetrain to back up that attitude. Popejoy often takes the truck out to battle the hostile terrain in the northeast, including the Pine Barrens in New Jersey. Mission accomplished.
When Gene Popejoy of Carlstadt, New Jersey, spotted this ex-military 1986 Chevy K5 Blazer for sale at a dealer, he knew he had to have it. Reason No. 1: Military-spec Chevy K5 Blazers are extremely rare, and this one was in excellent condition. Reason No. 2: It would make an ideal foundation for a bulletproof trail rig.
