    http://www.hiltgen.com/daniel/automotive/blazer/ I wonder how hard this is to do? Can't decide if I like the the new or the old style front clip better!!?? I could see this with maybe some 37" swamper SSR on ?? rims, maybe get rid of the chrome?

    Full cage, set it on some 1 tons?? I think I might want to do this!! What do you think??

    I just picked up some of those fenders this past weekend, I also have the hood. (All freebies with minor damage which I am repairing.) I was wondering how difficult of a project it would be, myself. I been debating back and forth about it even before I scored the fenders. But now that I see it, I am getting motivated.

    The problem I see as of right now is that our fenders are quite a bit longer, basically the whole nose is longer. I was thinking of mounting the hood somehow and working from there on. Thanks for sharing the link.

    Those so-called "Conversion 'Glass" kits came about b/c of the body style change. To keep desert race trucks built around the old cabs looking current (= BIG $$$$ if you won) those kits were developed.

    For some reason that silly look caught on as a fad. I think it's hideous.

    Me neither, looks too much like a pre runner with that front end. Not as beefy looking as the original front clip.
