    Hey Guys,
    I own a very rusty (in bad places no less) '79 Blazer that I very much want to keep. My question is, how hard would it be to swap a truck cab onto the chassis in place of the Blazer tub? I'm not worried about the bed length since I'll be running a tube frame flattie w/ stacks. Thanks!

    It will bolt right up. We did the same thing about 3 years ago on my old Blazer. It worked great, and looked cool. After I mangle the body on my current Blazer I'm going to do the same thing!

    I'm in the process of looking for a cab now w/o A/C or any power accessories. The Blazer is loaded w/ options that I do not want or need......Make for some good parts to sell! ;)
