    I have a roof rack on mine and have never seen one on another. Can you post a pic of yours? I'll send you a pic of my truck with the rack and you can tell me if its the same. Maybe someone could post the pic.

    dude, theres lots of them out out there. go to www.slosh .com and go through the blazer sale fliers. theres lots of pics of blazers through the years with this same roof rack. there are also some in the members rides here at ck5. unfortunately assebled pics does not show me how exactly they go together. i also need interior shots , in the off chance i may be missing some pieces. one can look at newer suv's and see they are almost standard. thanks for replying and i hope in some way i have helped you at the same time. hope to see your pics. thanks.

    I got a '78 topper in storage with a rack on it. Doesnt look like my bolts pass thru the top.......they are conviently sunk into the spots where the "eves"/ ribs are........the rack looks like a big "U" and is held on with 6 metal hangers.

    I haven't ripped a top in half to double check, but the ones I've taken spoilers off of use threaded aluminum rivets with rubber gaskets. I'd *assume* the racks were the same way.

    Why insist on counting when the ring gear has the tooth counts stamped in?
