    I was gonna say only a couple years and very low numbers, I'v only seen 2 in person that were not made.

    I'm actually looking at a 2wd burb my buddy has, have to get storage emptied and move the 4x4.

    Well I want one. I think I will look for another 1st Gen body... and then find a 2nd Gen blazer and do a body swap. I just want a cool summer cruiser of the 2wd persuasion. Of course if I could find a 73-75 2nd Gen 2wd I would just drive that. What I want is a full convert DD.

    Well ironically I can go pick up a '69 2wd PU for $100 if I want it. It has no engine or trans but the body is supposed to be good.

    Honestly I will have to sit in it and see how comfortable I am in a standard cab where I can not move the seat back as far as I can in a sub/blazer.

    That is a pretty good idea though... I could also cut down the bed on the 2WD and have a stubby bed on a blazer frame, VERY COOL!!!

    Well I am going to get the truck no matter what... but then I have to decide if I am going to take your idea and run with it. I have been reading this thread... and I really like the idea.

    The truck is here in Corvallis... But I won't tell where. With all you junk hunters out there I could loose it if I tip my hand... LOL.

    But I may need to find a trailer to haul it. My trailer is loaded down with '69 Blazer parts. I am going to need to rent one this week and go pick it up.
