    hi I am redoing a 1969 blazer, with a cracked frame at the steering box. I also have a frame from a 76 blazer that is in perfect shape. I was thinking of moving the body from one frame to the other. any problems besides redoing the body mounts? I fiugre this way I could also use the cheaper springs and I like the new engine mounts better the the old ones.

    you run into a problem with the wheelbase, if you put a bigger lift and wanted to spend a LOT of time making new body mounts then I guess anything is possible with some tools and an imagination but a direct replacement no. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif
