    Has anyone ever seen a full size sliding ragtop style roof on a fullsize Blazer.. I have an 84 so this is what I am looking for specifically but would be interested in any type.

    This type of ragtop:

    I've seen one on a shell of a Blazer but don't have any picks. I like the idea of having one......

    Stacy David put on in a 1500 pickup(NBS) on Trucks, haven't seen one on a K5, seems like a neat idea.

    Do you have a fullsize Blazer, Cmoe?

    I saw a pretty large ragtop on a episode of Pimp My Ride where they pimped a econoline Van.. and the old VW buses had some large ragtops. But the VW would probably be too narrow.

    It is really difficult to do a google search for this type of ragtop though because you come up with all kinds of stuff.. such as with Blazers you get the full cloth camper style cover... or you get convertibles and whatnot.

    Hey JIMMY76, mind me asking what something like that runs, price-wise? Also, does the manufacturer have a website?


    Hey Sled Dog, do you know if there are any pictures of their truck? I am curious what size it was.

    Thanks, Dodgedude!

    Maybe that VW one would work nicely.. I just measured a piece of my interior that runs the full width of the interior and it is 62 inches. 40 might be wide enough.

    I wonder if there is a simple way they could be widend? I don't think I have the cajones to mess with a 1,000 ragtop, though. haha
