    Is it possable to get one off a junk blazer and graft it on my burban. I sure its been asked but any info will help as I am finishing the planning stages of my build. Also i have barn doors can it be changed to the tailgate style that the blazer uses.

    it can be done.. i asked the same a couple yrs ago... there are 1 or 2 on here.. sorry, i didn't save the pics... one was a primer black one..

    i don't have firsthand knowledge on a barndoor swap, but i would suspect that wouldn't be too hard.. hinge and striker assemblys and a tailgate i would think..

    i've actually contemplated the other way.. ditching the gate and going barndoor on my K5.. the only real issue in my mind would be ditching the upper frame... doable, i think... probably be looking at custom glass and tracks tho..

    I have also kicked around doing this same thing for my new tow rig, but installing the back of a truck cab behind the door and installing a goose neck ball in the back, and also while I am at it I would be at it install my dulley axal :D
