    hello all, can anyone tell me,without a doubt in their mind if the rear gates used on Blazers will fit on the same year of Suburban. I have heard all kinds of stories but which is true? Someone out there must know.



    THANK-YOU

    In a word, no, they are different. With major modification, maybe.

    Not only is the sheet metal different, even the window inside the gate is different. :(

    Bolts right on. You'll even find that the holes are drilled and threaded for mounting up the truck tailgate hardware. :cool1:

    I've got mid 80s P/U gates on my '73 Blazer & '80 Jimmy. Make sure you get the hardware from the gate you want to use.
