    I HAVE AN 85 BLAZER K5 AND I NEED A NEW HARD TOP FOR MY RIG. I WAS WONDERING IF THE OTHER YEAR BLAZERS TOPS ARE COMPATIBLE WITH THE 85... AND WHAT IS A REASONABLE PRICE FOR A USED TOP.

    as far as my (limited) knowledge goes, all the half tops are compatible, but they used different bolts in different years. full tops are not compatible, i think.

    If it's a half top it should be compatible with the half tops and if it's a full top than the full tops are compatible with the full tops, unless you cut your cabin to make the truck full convertible than you can use a full top hope my $0.02 help.

    i'm almost positive someone was trying to sell me a topper that they had in their backyard or something. i'll try like heck to remember where exactly it is. besides, it never rains in california, what do you need a top for?
    i'm in the bay area too, so it should be fairly easy for you to get, if i find it.......
    BTW, where at in the bay? i live in brentwood and work in livermore. there's a handful of northen cali guys on the board, lets get a trip going.

    They are a little different through the years but you can still use it. A while back I wanted to get rid of the cap of my 77 that I got rid of. So I took the cap off my 87 to put the 77 cap on to get rid of. The pins on the back of the quaters that go through the cap are in different locations. I believe thats the only difference and its a easy fix to drill new holes in the cap to match

    hey I've got a black top off an 85 in good shape with roof rack and air dam but I live in southern AR. If your in the neighborhood and want it we could make a deal. But I think freight from here to CA. would be more than the top is.
