    ? about equipment found in a 76\' blazer

    im tearing down a 76' blazer right now to scrap. im removing the rear carpet cuz someone want it and underneath is a small section of what looks like a rubber bed mat. there is also another section up under or in front of where the third seat sets. what is this ? is this original equipment ? this rig has never been torn aprt before, its all original and these are to precise for someone to have made it themselves. please let me know. thanks.

    Re: ? about equipment found in a 76\' blazer

    i found thin grooved rubber mats (with 'speed bump' type grooves) under my rear carpet in my '76 too. it didn't cover the whole rear, and it may have been in two pieces (i can't recall now). i'm not the original owner so i don't know if it's original or not.

    just curious - why does it matter?

    My '73 has those in it. I believe they are stock, but don't know what years they were put in.

    My '73 had something like that in the front, but I don't know if it was stock.
