    What do you need? I just ripped the frame out of my 87 cause it was tweeked in the right rear. So if you need something let me know.. I got it's replacement by spending two hours at a junkyard with a Blazer on it's side and two buddies pulling bolts. THe fun part is when I got it home and had to switch the two out........ Anyways, just find a good one and go to town, or are you trying to box it in or buy a stronger frame???

    I don't know of any aftermarket frames for K5's. Too bad you aren't closer to Colorado. I'm just about to strip an '88 Blazer that has an immaculate frame. The truck got too close to the edge of a trail, the ground gave way, and the truck fell over against a tree. The body got damaged beyond repair, but the rest of it is in great shape.

    I was wondering the same thing too.
    Why doesn't anyone make custom boxed frames for the blazers.
    For some of us that do the frame-up resto's, it would be so nice to start on a flawless frame and go from there.

    I'd guess that there just isn't enough demand for them. It would probably need to cost somwhere in the $1,500-2,500 range for someone to make a living selling them, plus shipping something that big and heavy would cost a bunch more. Most folks would balk at spending that kind of cash and just find a frame in a junkyard. K5's aren't that tough to find in the yards. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif
