    some k5ers get a blazer and theres a point where its 90% custom fabbed tubing/other stuff and 10% blazer, they might as well just make a whole new truck. Whats going too far and what is and is not considered a blazer to you guys?

    I'm sure I'll end up with some sort of a buggy some day, but in the mean time I'm driving and customizing what I have. I imagine most of the folks who end up with a truck that's 90% custom have never had the cash or time to build a truck from scratch. It just seems like a logical progression as we get more hardcore, meanwhile we drive what we got.

    To me, if it looks like a blazer than it is a blazer... If it doesn't look like a blazer than it's something else.

    If it does not have leaf springs, doors, fenders, hood, etc.. it is no longer a blazer, it is a buggy.
