    I have been thinking about buying a 68-70 chevy truck 2 wheel drive and putting my Blazer body on it and the truck on my frame.

    Everytime I think about it I get a bad feeling in my gut like it is telling me I will regret it. What do you guys think? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I did not know that Chevy made a truck with the same wheelbase as a Blazer-shows how much I know!

    I don't know that they do it was just a thought. If not it would just be a little more work. /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    You'll regret it. Keep saving for that ORIGINAL 2 wheel drive. It ends up being more of a kit
    car if you piece it together.... /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    a K5 wheelbase and frame are quite a bit shorter than a truck. So you'll have lots of headaches doing that.
