    I was at the store the other day, and i was flipping through the pages of a truckin magazine, and i came across this blue blazer that had a suburban top half welding in place of the fiberglass top. I was wondering if any one has done this before, or if any one has other pictures of something similar.

    Other than show why would anyone want to do this? Yeah it looks nice and it made me look twice but isn't one of the best features of a K5 the removable top?

    Even if it was for show, i think it looks pretty cool.I was just curious to how many others have done this to a k5, or if this guy was the first to do it.

    my only question is why didnt he go with the barn door style sub rear that is the only reason i would even think of it is to rid it of the tailgate and rearglass
    just the way i think i guess
