    Ive got a 73 myself, but my buddy scored a slick 72 today. Its had a recent build up, the body is in great shape with great paint, as is the drivetrain. All that is needed is interior work and an engine transplant. The original owner just lost interest after what I consider to be the hard part. Its missing the rear inner fender wheels, looks like they bolt in? Wheres a good place to pick these up? It also has two spools with cable that the guy said was a option in the day. They are to be bolted on outside the wheel if you get stuck and as the tires turn it will winch you out. Ever heard of this, its new to me!

    Inner fender wells can be obtained from junk yards. the ones from a pickup are the same as blazers. Also for new you can try LMC Truck Parts, Classic Industries, Manes Truck Parts, etc. Just check out the first gen forum. They do just bolt in.

    I have seen the bolt on (Winch things) you speak about, I have never seen them in action just pics of them. Seems like they would be worth a shot.

    Thanks for the reply. By saying inner fenderwells im refering to the rear wheel tubs some call them. You can see inside the blazer and see the back seat by looking into the rear wheel well. Are these the same as the pickups, I figured this was just part of the bed on trucks. Thanks again! :D

    Yep same as pickups. I took two sets and grafted them together and cut my floor out so when I stuff the rears I don't hit the inner fenders. I added 6 inches to each side, drilled some new holes and bolted em down.
