    I know this sounds crazy, but would a 3 + 3 cab (crew cab) fit on a 77 blazer frame? I know it would look funny as all get out, but I don't wanted to be limited to 3 people in truck cab. I'm sure that mounts would have to be fabricated and all that good mess, but I'm more worried about the physical dimensions. Just a thought. Am I crazy for having this thought?

    no. the frames are to different. The blazer frame curves up after the front seats. and the 3+3 cab needs a straight frame.

    I thought the frames on the pre 79 or 80 model blazers where flat, relatively anyway. Mine seems to be fairly flat. Maybe a body 2 ro 3 inch body lift would correct the difference.

    If you did pull that off I think it would be awesome!

    Does anyone have the dimensions of the 3 + 3 (crew) cab? I might just have to break out the old measuring tape to see if this might work.

    Probably going to be real close to the Suburban measurements right past the rear doors. Not a whole lot of 3+3's running around!
