    Hey, i was wondering if any one has ever put a first gen body on a 73-87 frame? I was throwing around the idea of putting a 1970 truck cab and front clip on a blazer frame, and was courious to how the body mounts would line up onto the frame. I'm sure they wouldn't be close but has anyone ever done this? I tried searching here but just came across alot of s10 on blazer frame swaps. Thanks.

    here is a pic of one mocked up on an 85 k5 frame. The fabbing of body mounts actually looks like it would be pretty easy. This is a 2wd body. Oh, and this setup is actually for sale in the for sale forum :D .

    That is sweet, i like the front and rear coilovers. Do you know if there is much difference between 4wd cab mounts and 2wd cab mounts? Do you have any pictures of the front with a clip? Thanks for the help.
