    I just picked up a 1972 Blazer. It has no top or motor. the front clip is off as well as the doors and the interrior is all out of it. It has the 4x2 conversion on it, lock out hubs, and front disk brakes. Pass side has a new rocker already installed and the drivers is off. (just needs to be installed) Quarters are in good shape, no through rust holes, got a front clip for free, some dents no rust on that. there is the usual rust in the rear bed area, along the tailgate and behind the wheel wells. I think ill replace the front floor boards but they are also not to bad. The best part of this is it only cost me $500 and i got a free years storage out of the deal. I dont plan on finding a factory top for this one I will probally just get a soft top. It will be my summer k5!! Just thought id share, Im so excited!!!!!!!

    Cool Beans!!
    What do you mean about 4x2 conversion??
    Are you talken 2wheel drive?
    If you are talking Manual hubs on the front D44 then that is not a conversion it came stock like that and has or should have NP205 xfer case in it.
    If you need parts suplier or mesuments or anything just ask.
    been tinkerin with my 72 sence 93 and been tru it from bumper to bumper....

    I thought someone had put the milemaker part time fourwheel drive kit on it with the lock out hubs, Hell if it has the 205 in it thats a bonus[​IMG]!!!
