    If you take it to a body shop with a frame machine they can pull that window post back out for you, the rest should be bolt on. Do you know what angle you were at before it rolled, and how much lift do you have?

    I thought I was wrong once,
    but I was mistaken

    Yea its a stock 1986 Silverado with 33's on it. There is no real lift just factory front quad shocks. i was making a left turn down a hill and it felt a little shaky so i took it really slow, then it all felt good, so i let my foot off the brake and turned the wheel a little and the truck rolled right over...

    Bluestreak,
    It depends, what year Blazer you have, and how mangled it got. This is my opinion, and I've been around autobody work for the last couple years now. If you have a 69-75, replace the windshield frame. It might not be that easy to find, but it will produce the cleanest results. If you've got a 76-91 and if the damage isn't that bad, then have a shop straighten it out. If it's too far gone, replace the roof. I know some people are against replacing roofs, it's just that a lot of shops don't do it right. The edges of the two pieces being joined together need to crimped so the weld retains some of it's strength when it's grinded down. Some guys would just weld to pieces together and then grind down the weld, and by the time they're done most of the weld is gone. Can you post some pics?

    It's not what you buy, it's what you build!
