    Does any one know if I can swap a '69 Blazer body onto a '84 Blazer frame-
    and if so what kind of modifications would I have to make?

    There is a wheelbase difference of about 3"...I think the first gens are 104" and the second gens are 106.5" or so.

    The frames are quite diferent so you'd have to fab or modify new mounts...

    If the first gen body is good why not keep it on a first gen frame?

    I'd sell the lift and buy another for the 69...unless some parts of the kit fit the 69. i'm not too familiar with spring lengths and all on the first gen Blazers.
