    Title says 75 on my Blazer but I have a full removeable top. I thought the last year they did this was '73. Can anyone help me on this? All the '75s I have seen on here still have a hard roof over the front seats when the top is off. Thanks for the info.

    1975 was the last year of the full convertable, if you see a blazer that has a steel roof over the driver then its 76 or later.

    There are, as always, some half year trucks like '76 full tops or '75 half tops rolling around out there. But the reported date is 1975 as the last full top.

    look for a convertable top place or a boat uposltry shop. They often make custom tops for various boats and it would be very easy for them to make you one. I have also heard that a modified CJ5 bikini top fits pretty darn close. I have the STC fast track on mine and it rocks! If you can justify the $600.00, I would reccomend going that route.

    I bought a Jeep Safari (they are longer than the regular) top on eBay for $20 for mine. It works well. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thanks Jeff- I will see if I can find one. If you have a picture could you email one to me so I can see how it looks and hooks on? My email is odoa3@hotmail.com. Thanks, Heath
