    Put a Chevelle Laguna station wagon on a blazer frame one time, changed a stepside pickup cab another time and am now switching a rusted out 83 Blazer body for a 87 Blazer body that is very good. Nike

    I swapped my blazer for an s-10 ext. cab.

    Wasnt that bad...just had to worry about body mounts, steering shaft and how to manipulate the body where I wanted it despite the EXTREME close clearance at the firewall/valve covers. Everything else like wiring, brakes, use of a floor shifter for my 700r-4, a hole for my 241 TC shifter and other small stuff wasnt that bad.

    Does a Binder Count?

    Did it on my IH Scout when i rolled it. Does that count? (heck, that's not a cab/box/fenders, it's a tub, roof & fenders! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
