    bad title ? why just because it dont have same# ? people do it all the time just dont tell the inspector or the man. and if spoted body rusted off and found good body bad frame doner and switched it. as long as the body # is clean. if old tag is avalible switch it . its done all the time by body shops and just take your time and need the star rivits, not somthing easy to get but have seen some on ebay at times.

    The body mounts will all have to be made. thats the only "major" part, but there are TONS of minor parts. It would actually be easier with a K30 frame because it's pretty straight from the cab back. I made my mounts out of tubing and 1/4" steel plate. Once the k5 tub is removed, and the baby blazer tub is sitting on there, it should become apparent on where to make the mounts. The k5 frame is also narrower than the s-10's. Good luck!

    Sorry to bump this old ass post... but I've seen the progress on said S10 K5, and it looks fuggin sweet... just needs some fenders and it will be street legal again... heh. Of course, it is still hanging over the frame by some straps, but it's in place and looks :pimp1: :pimp1: :pimp1:

    Sorry, but this just reminded me of a Blazer with a Mercedies body on it. All lifted up with mudders. Anyway, it was cool/funny looking :p:

    Looked like this one, but about 4 feet higher with 36in mudders. It was all shiney with all leather interior too. But the 4wd shifter was on the passenger side floor
