    I am looking into taking the 4wheel camper off my k5 and somewhere along the way the hardtop and tailgate got lost. I would like to know where i could get these items new (if possible). I would also appreciate it if any of you have had experiance with theses campers and any suggestions on how to remove it and keep it in one piece(i've heard they are really fragile)
    Thanks for the help
    p.s. I would also like info onb soft tops

    excuse my ingnorace, but what is the difference between the hard top/camper you are refering to and the normal hard top everyone can take off of their blazer?

    When all else fails... Check the blinker fluid.

    The differance is that this is an aftermarket pop-up camper manufactured by Four Wheel Campers. It has a heater, sink, stove, bed, and bench. From what i've heard there a pain to take off mainly (i think) becuase it has no floor , likr a regular camper, it uses the floor of the blazer which makes it weak when its not attached to the K5. Boy that was long winded i hope that answers your question
