    I took a spare top I had and cut 32"s or so out of the window section. seamed it together with fiberglass matting,tigerhair,and filler.BANG!!!! instant scabalanche!
    After lifting my stepside to unuseable height I needed a truck again bad.Even One with a short shortbox.I used the blazer gate as the new back wall,and replaced it with a P/U tailgate.The rear seat is still usable,as is the roll down back window, plus it takes the same amount of time to remove as the factory top.

    very cool I am looking to do a cab cover for the 75 blazer, just over the front passengers though, any one done that?, it would make it like the 76-91 with the top off.

    At one time they were available. US Body has a top for a truck that you could make work. Just a matter of making the fill pannel and a latch system. I think they copied the 73-75 blazer for the windsheild header.
    www.usbody.com fair warning it's pop up hell with their own adds.

    would like more info and details on your conversion. this is an awesome mod with a "10" on the coolness factor. this would solve alot of my problems with family hauler and the need for occasional use of a pu. im interested in the mods that need to be done to the interior and if any welding needs to be done. is anything permanent ? additional up close pics would be cool. pm me if need be. thanks.
