How wide is an older S-10 body? anybody know?
What years (range?) ?
These are Bed Dimensions From a Camper Company.
1982-93 SWB 61x75
1982-93 LWB 61x91
Here is a link to the site.
Hope this helps
82-93 will work, I wonder if the bed dim's are in or outside?
Someone said a TJ is 59" wide not including the wheel flairs.
The site says that it's outside Dimensions.
I've got a '93 s-10 I can measure it tomarrow if it would help. Just let me know what all you need measured.
I Just Measured the outside width of the back of my 91 and It's what the site has. But if the body bulges in the middle like our trucks do then it will be wider than that.
Measure at the doors at the widest point, prolly in the middle, would be easy to take a level or something and set up against the door (verticle) and make a mark on the ground, then same on the other side, then just measure on the ground between the two points.
I can handle that. What are you up to? Gonna build a hybrid truck
Just thinkin again, I really like how my K5 is set up now, have a few things left but it wheels really well and is very strong, the only thing is I wish that it was narrower like a Jeep, sooo was thinking some day maybe an S-10 hybrid but wouldn't be this winter anyway, just wanted to know how close it was to a TJ. Can anyone else verify that a TJ is 59" wide?
I can send an e-mail to my dad to measure his TJ tomorrow. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif
I'm thinking the same thing. I really liked how those two brothers from Maryland's rigs worked. Maybe in a few years...
S10 Hybrids are EVERYWHERE down South. They look/work /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
Screw the S-10 you should do a Chevy Luv
A couple of my friends have S-10 Blazer bodies on fullsize chassis and they work and look good. One guy runs a small block and was able to fit the stock front clip on with a customer aluminum radiator and small cap HEI with some firewall mods, but it's tight. The other guy runs a big block and just cut and spiced in a section on the front fenders and hood to stretch it. Both of them cut and boxed the rear floor to allow the body to sit down on the frame further.
I know one guy I talked to said he cut and boxed the rear floor, can he still put the rear seat in, also any pics?
I think both of them still have the back seats in them, but maybe had to modify the mounting locations. Honestly I have never looked inside them that closely. I might see both of them later this week and will try to bring the digital for some closer pics. I have a few trail shots of them I will e-mail, but no close-ups regarding the body swaps. One thing I just thought of is that they both obviously lost the inner fenderwells though they do have a heavy tarp like material they can roll down to protect the engine in the mud. The guy who kept the stock front clip said it took a lot of work and measuring to make the 350 fit.
At the widest point the cab measured 64.5" wide ant the same place on the bed it measured 65". The beds a little wider than the cab. Hope this helps /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
