    I've been hot to make up a fiberglass set like on the old Bronchos......I think they would sell like hotcakes! There is a picture in the photos section of some home made ones that look cool . Here it is......

    I'll be doing a set for my 77 this winter. I'm incorporating a jeepish (heap!) soft-window so that when it rains I can have some more shelter. Making these doors can easily save over 100 lbs, for sure!

    I have seen these fiberglass door inserts on a scout but never on a blazer. It is a good idea and when I have the time, I might do that. I am also thinking of getting a fiberglass hood. Anyone know how much it would cost to get one?

    YES YES YES That is what I want! Any details on that set? Ideally they would have provisions for an existing soft or hard 1/2 door, ie ScoutII, EB, or CJ7/YJ. If the Jeep doors would fit they have the most options. If someone finds some or something close let us know. BTW I just checked the K Bar S (Bronco)website and they don't show anything for a F/S, just the EB. Jim.

    Thats one of the only things I miss about my Jeep compared to my Blazer. I can take off the entire top, but I hate having to open and close the doors. I'd pay a crapload of money for a set of those. These stupid companies need to take a hint. Theres about 09350984085830 more Blazers than Jeeps.

    These guys will make them!!!

    If you guys are serious about getting a company to make some half doors or inserts, talk to Glassworks Unlimited. I emailed them and they said that they would be willing to design some, they just need a Blazer to work off of. The company is in Huntington Beach, Ca. I didn't get into specifics with them and I'm not close enough to let them have my blazer to work off of.

    Here's how to reach them:
