    Just a quick question, but does the truck cab bolt directly onto the Jimmy/Blazer frame?? Im sure this has been covered before, but thought I'd ask anyways.


    Thanks.

    im curious as well. my blazer is nice externally but the floor is 75% gone, the tail pan is rusted out and the b-frame is starting to rot out at the floor. does it sound like i should try to repair or would it be easier to put a cab on the chassis and call it a day? im new to body work and i appologize for the hijack.

    re-doing a floor is kinda scary at first, i did mine last summer, i replaced from the tailpan all the way to the drop off in the front seats and then my rocker panels. It was scary at first but overall pretty easy if you just take your time and do a lot of searches.

    i read the write up that someone did (cant remember his name) and it was pretty in depth. i think ill try to tackle the floor and stuff but im still curious about this set up as well.

    I asked this question a while back and from the responses I got, it is a bolt on job. The only thing that you will have to do is make a crossmember for the very back cab mounts because of the way the blazer frame dips down in that area. I believe one guy on here use a piece of 3x5 or 3x6 tubing with a notch for the tranny/transfer (very simple). Try to do a search for "Backyardbuilt". He did this conversion with a stepside body and it looks great. He can probaly tell you how much to cut off of the bed too.:waytogo:

    I think its disgusting that people would go picking their nose and putting it on their vehicles. I am happy you were able to find a truck with no boogers.

    first off thanks very muchTJ:bow: :bow: :bow: ,but you'll never guess whats loaded in the gallery now:blush: . the first pic is me and a guy from work trying to get the cab on with apiggy back fork lift. it lifts 12 feet but that was not high enough even with the tires flat:mad: as you can see in the second pic i smashed the squirrel cage housing:mad: :mad: . and it was a two wheel drive cab so lining it up to cut the hole was a REAL treat. (for the t-case shifter).it took 4 hours to get it on , man that cab was heavy. and my bud on the fork lift couldn't help.i have some funny picks of how rusted out it was.and some pics of when i first got it,it even had the rally wheels.:)
