    I'd think its totally doable. Much like grafting on a full convert windshield frame except you'd have to graft on the whole roof with windshield frame and b pillars. Then come up with some kind of bed rails for the topper to sit on and stretch the topper. If I were to do it I would start with two toppers and graft them together. Hardest part would have to be the bed rails. Never really looked at the suburbans though. Maybe there is something already there. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif Be really sweet as a full convert top.

    Just seems if your going to go to all the hassle and long hours, might as well go all the way and have something really unique. Better get a cage in there though to stiffen up the body again.

    i agree my original thought though was to cut out a blazer bulkhead and bed to graft onto the burb though i always think of the simplest way to do things lol but my way only makes the 3rd row seats convert and thats kinda lame

    I guess anything is possible --yesterday I saw a nice K5 for sale that had Suburban barn doors morphed into the blazer!It looked cool!--but I bet it took a lot of work to do it. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
