So.. Is an S-10 Cab on a Blazer frame still a Blazer?

    I have been seriously contemplating building a Hybrid. The only problem will be getting hell from all of you for getting less K5ish. I really like the looks of this rig.

    I could lower my center of gravity, still haul spare parts and have much more manuverability. Give you your thoughts.

    When I eventually destroy my K5 tub, I think I will go with an extended S10 cab.

    I think that is the nicest S-10/K5 hybrid I have seen! Someone put alot of time and work into that! Whos is that???

    Denver - I believe you can run stock hummer rims if you run a steering arm that bendes in quite a bit and not straight out like stock on a 60...

    Thats the "Stubby Mechano" from TTC '02. I am not sure if he entered the TTC. I got the pic from White Knight's website. Inquiring about the rig right now. I like how it has a "bed" welded to the Cab. I might do the same. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Ok, I started lookin harder at the pic and am wondering if that is a K5 chassis? Is this person running coils in the front? There is no front leaf springs, frame looks a little different in the fornt(could just be me)...

    A couple of guys in our club did S-10 Blazer bodies on K5 chassis and they look pretty good. The narrow body definitely makes getting through the tight wooded trails around much nicer.

    I saw that S-truggy in person a couple of months ago being towed on the car trailer. Needless to say I did a major double take as it went by. I guess the guy is somewhat local to me...

    I like it./forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    If it was a Jimmy you could still call it a K5, IIRC the Jimmy "K5's" were actualy K10's? I'm probably wrong, but I figured I'd put in my $.02 worth /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    You at least have to use an S-10 Blazer body. Then at least it is still a Blazer /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif.

    I won't be running much sheetmetal on my rig, and when it all falls apart, I will either be tubing it, or putting an s10 cab and front clip on it. The biggest problem is the length of the front clip, and the fact that I have a big block. But I suppose you can always lengthen body panels.
    It will still be K5 drivetrain. You can go to K5, and S10 sites /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[ QUOTE ]

    I had the same problem. I welded two fenders together to make one long fender. Mine look crappy (look good at 50' or so /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif) but I suck at welding sheetmetal. I am sure it can be done to look good.
