The 5.3 really makes a difference too. I actually got 20 mpg highway with a V8 and 3.42 gears on a calm day and 65mph. I won't rub in the 0-60 in a shade over 7 seconds without manually shifting:happy:
2002 Trailblazer-pretty much all original right down to the brake pads and hoses.
Issues: problem with the delay wipers, problem with alloy wheels leaking air......also loves taillight bulbs
Repaired problems- A/C, heater blower relay.
The worst part is that there are virtually no inexpensive aftermarket steel wheels and there are few 16" wheels available that will fit. I did find a wheel I really like that looks like an old Chevy rally wheel but they are $400 each. It's just not worth putting that much into wheels just to fix a air leaking issue. Chevrolet should allow a trade-in for new wheels-kidding, I know that won't happen.
My TB came with the factory 17 inch rims but in December I was playing around in the snow and busted one of them on a curb so I looked on Craigslist and found a guy that had the factory 16 inch rims all 4 for just $80 and then I got some new A/T tires so maybe you could check on there man and find you a set cheap
