    I own a 88' k5 and recently was involved in a front end collision and the frame was damaged. I really like my Blazer and my question is, How difficult is it to change out the chassis? I also need to replace entire front clip, pass. door, transfer case and tailgate window and windshield. Anyone with some knowledge to give me some advice greatly appreciated.

    With that kind of damage, you might be better off to get a different Blazer. You might be able to find one without a motor for cheap and just transfer over parts from your victom. How do you feel about older Blazers ??? I noticed a late 70's K5 on ebay without a motor for pretty cheap.

    I'd like to stick with the same. mine is got a complete new interior, and tranny is 5 mos old. Do you think I should get another one and just switch my good stuff over or is it cheaper to just repair this one? Thanks for your input..

    Too Bad on your damage. I agree with z3pr and find a donor vehicle and switch over parts. Best of luck to you, only this time make it bulletproof so that your truck comes out the better of the two in a crash. hope that doesnt sound bad. /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif
