    any one ever thought of moving the rear bench to the very back so that when you have the top off, your friends in the back can kick back and watch the ladies as your cruising. It would make room to have like a little mini bar of some sort were the rear bench previously was. Just a though, idea, little day dream I had floating around - dont think that I actually have the gas-axe and saw-zall ready to go

    just looking for some peoples thoughts and views on this

    Got my 91 K5 back after 2 years - and man I need parts - BAD!!!!

    On mine it would be easy! Just drill (& reinforce) 6 holes. I have thought about doing that too...but w/ leaving the rear seat in and adding a 3rd row seat. Would be kinda cool to have a 9 passanger Blazer[​IMG]

    That sounds cool, but I like having a little carrying capacity back there at times. Maybe putting the seat on rails that would allow it to be positioned either front, middle or back?

    That sounds do-able.

    Oops,

    Kind of forgot about the wheel wells, I guess that whole sliding thing is out of the question. It could still be movable between the front and back with only two bolts to remove on my model.
