    117.5 seems to come to mind.

    For 73-87/91 trucks...

    Blazer 106.5"
    PU 6.5' bed (short) 117.5"
    Suburban 129.5"
    PU 8' bed (long) 131.5"
    Crewcab 8' bed 164.5"

    So, yes, 117.5" is right, center of front axle/wheel to center of rear.

    There are some other flavours for cab & chassis, but they're pretty rare.

    Bottom half of page, "Dimensions." Wheelbase: 106.50. That's 1977, but you can find it in the other 73-91 years as well.
