    Here is the prob I want to rebuild my 72 blazer to get it back to trail worthy condition. The body is beyond trashed from what I have been told it has been a wheeling rig for the past 20 years, that with WI winters=comming appart at the seams. I have a 70 GMC truck cab that is in good shape, that I am thinking on useing. I am looking for some pics of what some one elses swap looks like to see if I will like the looks of such a swap. I would prefer a Blazer body but I am going to do this on a very tight budget. HELP ME DESIDE BEFORE I MISS ANOTHER YEAR OF WHEELING.

    BTW the drive train and frame is in good shape so I dont need to do much with that.

    You can check out this thread, it's a 70 truck cab on a 79 blazer frame.

    I put a 68 chevy cab and clip on a 78 short bed 4x4 frame for my mud truck. I just had to make some bracket (not hard, just time consuming). Good luck. Jason

    Swapping the body is cheap and easy if you have the donor truck sitting next to it.

    It's called a trazer. :D

    Truck/blazer combo.

    Been done a fair amount, sorry no pics on the computer but they look okay if you like em short.

    You could always just cut the bed down and still keep the division between the cab and bed. :dunno:
