    frame is from 87 k5
    every bolt mount bushing and ruber seal is brand new and still in the box
    ivee been collecting this stuf for 5 years now i have every last part this k5 will be a miled custom built from the ground up for daily use.all trim will be shaved rollpans in front and rear ful fantom grill in front supra tail lights in rear.will run a kay line fasttrack top in sumer with a skined truck gate,and hard top with k5 gate in winter .
    im going to mount the 78 tub on a spare rolling frame for now and start preping to wack the roof and instal new bed sides,but heres my problem i do not whant a roll cage this blazer must have a unobstrucked view no ugly bars in the way.it will have a bolt on center hoop with 3rd brake light and mount for seat bealts.

    you could use the rocker boxes from the '73 if you get an older tub. '78 has the new floor w/ the bigger fotwell. Maybe you could fab something similar.
