    I just bought and installed one on my 85. I have a picture, but they are small for some reason and I don't know how to change that. I love mine.

    I ordered mine from http://www.specialtytopco.com/

    looks good

    that looks real nice from what i can tell. what color is your blazer mine is gray but a little faded, and i dont know if i want to change it or not. i found a site last night offroad design that had some like yours. i can't make up my mind if i want one like that or one i used to see in the 4wheel mag that looked like a pickup with a tonneau cover. im going to check out specialty tops also. thanks for the info.

    Mine is black with a black top...but they come in tons of colors. I have heard the ones that make it look like a reg p/u leak, but that may have just been bad installation. Mine has not leaked once and mine sat outside in the rain for a week when it broke down. I can get some better pictures for you, but I don't know how to post big pictures.

    man i appreciate the info. i just went to the site you told me about and after looking at all of them i like the one like you have best. you talk about not knowing how to make the pictures bigger, i dont even know how to put mine on this thing. i feel like i've been living in a cave. sometimes i wish i did. what is your e-mail address so i dont have to keep coming back to this site mine is r1612b@earthlink.net i look forward to chatting and for some more ideas on our blazers. thanks

    I REALLY want one of their tops... but there website says "For Sale" and all sites that sell them say they arent returning msgs or filling orders...

    Oooooh Ooohhhhh, I get to be a pic whore again :grin:

    Here's my fast-trac cab/tanneau cover. Yes it can leak in heavy rain, and no it is not due to bad instalation, it is a design flaw.

    Which one is this one? I like! How easy is it to take the top completely off?
