    Sucks to see a K5 put to pasture...

    </font><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr />
    Our first step was to remove the old Blazer body. After nearly 20 years of Minnesota winters, the holes were big enough that small children and pets shouldn't have been allowed in it anymore. Our romping around in mudholes and off-road didn't help either. In fact, the body mounts were so weak that the doors no longer closed.

    Sounds like it was pretty 'done', and the project turned out pretty cool...so I guess it lives on in some way.

    I remember reading that build up a while back on here. The link at the bottom w/ a pic of the truck says Highlander above it if that rings any bells.

    LMAO! The name at the top of the page is Highlander too. Damn Im not firing on all 8 tonite!

    My neighbour had a sukuki sidekick on a shortend blazer frame. It wasn't over done though. The frame was mainly stock and ran 31s. Looked way better than this thing. But still not my style
