    Do the one-piece window kits work on the blazers? I don't think I've ever seen a blazer with the kit...

    From what I understand from the 67-72chevytruck guys it wouldn't be a good idea. It's a huge window and there really isn't enough support, especially on a blazer that doesn't have the window frame to support it. I if you leave the top on all the time it would be ok but otherwise it's probably not a good idea.

    Somebody was talking pretty extensively about doing a one-piece glass kit for 73-87 trucks - I think it was this board - and it was at least 1-2 years ago?

    I don't think anything ever came of it as the glass is curved and would be expensive to have done.
