    I am considering putting a truck cab on my blazer frame. Has anyone done this? If so, what is involved? Do you have any pictures? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    I did here's a few pics. Even whacked down a box to fit.

    its pretty much a bolt on affair. Makes for a really short bed pickup if you go with a box. I cut my box down with a skilsaw. Neighbors really loved that... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I have a freind who put a mazda cab on his k5 frame. He cut the frame infront of the front spring mount and behind the rear spring mount and the frame still sticks out a little in front. He is goung to mount the radiater behind the cab and fab up some body mounts. I dont know where he is at this point but we figured the toughest part would be to connect the steering collumn and the pedals. It's going to turn out to be a great trail rig. I think the body was like 12" narrower and with the Hummer wheels at full back spacing he is 8" narower at the wheels. The bed is only going to be about 3' long. Its definately a monster.

    Thanks for the info. I am looking to put stock Chevy/GMC cab on my blazer frame. I would like to design a combination flatbed and tube/exo-cage to make the bed utilitarian. I want to make my rig a support vehicle with on board air, under hood welder and plenty of room for spare parts to fix my rig or others on the trail. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    What did you have to do to mount the cab to the blazer frame? Is the rear truck cab mounts in the same place as the blazer cab area rear mount? Please list some details. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    I will help ya out when you come over today. It is real easy to do. I had no idea what to do when I started but it went together so easy I could not believe I was worried when I started the project. Hardest part is getting the blazer tub off.

    EZ WY ,hopefully you find a cab that was 4 wheel drive. if not you'll have to cut a hole like i did.a flat bed would be easy,i have the origianal fenders,so i didn't have to move the rear bumper. weld or have someone weld a frame for the cab support. my friend john used hockey pucks and threaded dowl rod.it felt like we were driving a water bed. do it right . i did it that's why i put /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifto /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
