    A friend of mine has done that to his burb in AZ. It is chopped, bobbed, & narrowed. It is pretty sweet.

    That would be awesome i think. I love that escalade ext, H2 sut look. I've seen blazers like that before and they look great.

    I like the idea. I would put a blazer hard top or soft top on it though so you can have the best of both world....

    Nice looking burb by the way.

    Yea there were two people on here that have them already. The thing I have noticed is that the vehicle color makes a big differance on the appearance to me. It would be a great mod for anyone that wants the removable top but needs 4 doors (I wonder why Centurion made the 4 door bronco but never a 4 door blazer? Didn't work on real trucks I guess!) but it would be way more trouble to me than it would be worth. But to each his own. Good luck.

    I personally dont like the blazer top idea becouse it still has a big ass. if, I mean WHEN I break out the sawsall, I am cutting a lot off.

    The tan az one is what I am after, but boatsided as well.:D

    If you are going to wheel it ! bob the ass end off because you will hang it up on something . Everyone is gonna have their way of doing the chop and bob . I didn't want to bob it and still use the factory tail light cause I knew I would just smash them up when wheeling in the rocks . I would have left the back all open but seeing how I live in the PNW and it rains alot I thought it best to weld it all in and have a small fixed window . I do have a 2003 ford truck rear tinted window with the power sliding middle window . I'm going to redo the back metal area so I can install the Ford rear slider . I still need to make a different spare tire mount for my 42" tsl and build my small roof rack . I used 1x1 box steel to build the frame between the rear seats and the bed and covered it with sheet metal .

    personally, if you were gonna do it, i would either graft the back of a truck cab onto it, or section out a Blazer top. either way make the rear overhang the same length as on a Blazer. keeps some resemblance of a factory vehicle, and doesnt look near as awkward.
