    Wife says truck has to go....time for a new wife. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    You'll like the better turning radius from a Blazer. I have a SWB truck and I laugh at all my friends with LWB trucks. My friends that have Blazers laugh at me though.

    just put a cage around the bed and put some seats with 5 point harnesses back there for the kids to ride in. It would be alot cheaper that building a new rig. Maybe not as fun though.

    looks like you have some good parts to cross over and swap to the blazer on that truck.then all you gotta do is get some sucker to buy the pickup with the half ton stuff attacked to it.:)

    if your set on selling that nice looken truck and want a blazer go get a stock blazer pull all your "cool" stuff off and put it on the K5 and sell your truck as a mostly stock truck so you then have a sweet K5

    Get a 3/4 ton burban and Mildly modify it for wheeling then you can go nuts with your current truck and make it purpose built only /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Keep the truck, ditch the standard cab and bed and install a crew cab and a small flat bed. I've seen one rig done this way, and It looked pretty cool.
