    Has anyone made a truck-bed trailer out of a 72 box? Moving to MO next spring and was thinking about loading everything into the Blazer for the drive. I don't have much stuff, but I'll need more room than that. I'll likely have to get the box off of a 2wd and mount it on a leaf-sprung frame. The guy who painted my brothers cars has been bugging me to let him do my Blazer (who says grey primer isn't sexy?), so he'd probably shorten the box for me just for fun. I've got these extra 4" springs, blocks, shocks and 35" BFG's sitting here, so why not? I know it's kinda show-truckish, but I think a matching shortbox on 35's might be handy and oh so attractive in grey primer. Besides, that's two extra tires and axleshafts or a whole rear axle if needs be. It's just in the planning stage, but I was thinking about ball or pintle hook? what's legal? what kind of frame? 73-87? how soft a spring so it doesn't bounce me right off the highway

    I'd thought about that too, but I decided I didn't want a rust bucket trailer, ( not that my Blazer is a real beauty)
    But I don't want to deprive some 67-72 pickup owner of a good box. They are hard to come by here in the rust belt.

    Lotsa longboxes around here, but you have to sell your soul for a good shortbox; I don't think I could do that to those shortbox owners.
