    I am planning to go with a p.u. cab on my blazer frame/flat bed. I am doing it to minimize weight and body damage. Maybe I can shed enough weight to keep my 1/2 ton axles alive.

    Keep it simple!

    BTW, if I pull the blazer body off and go with the fullsize p.u. cab, will it still be CK-5 elgible?

    Keep it simple!

    I wouldn't count on that, I wheeled with a guy a few weeks ago with no bed or doors, who still managed to break plenty of Dana 44 front parts.

    But it would have to cut down on the breakage though! That is if you make the flat bed lighter than the body use to be. I am thinking more along the lines of tubing strategically placed at random to strap gear and inlaws too!!!!!!

    Keep it simple!

    The gear I can understand, but you would take the time to strap the inlaws in?

    Steve,

    What ever you are curious about, I hope it doesn't involve your Blazer.
