    Does anyone know manufacturers or have any storage ideas for the full size blazer?

    If you're talking about interior storage boxes, I would advise you to find a competent welder that you trust not to rip you off and pay him for time and materials to build custom boxes that you dream up.

    I can't remember who, but someone on this site has drawings for the custom storage lockers he built into the rear of his K5. Check the Member websites for it.

    Well give us a better idea what your looking for. Looking for locking storage like a center console? Tuffy makes a 10 inch wide one that will work. Steve has a write up on that in the Tech section on the main page. As for other storage like wheel well boxes I'm not aware of any made for the K5. There are some that can be made to work on the driverside but the fuel fill cover is in the way on the other side and would take some creativity to make it work there. Not sure of one short enough to make it between the gate and wheel well. Might be able to put them in front of the wheel wells but on your year you would need to build a shelf for it to sit on. Also need to make sure it doesn't interfer with the seat belt. Short bed 73-87 Chevy should work there since the shap of the wheel well is the same between K5 and K10. As for boxes in the back....slim pickings. There are some companies that make universal fit stuff that can be adapted to fit. Might go to http://grimsk5s.coloradok5.com/
