    If you have a removable hardtop, it will fit, but if you have a non-removabel hardtop, then no it will not fit.

    I take back most of what I said, I just double checked my books....blazer hinges changed in 83, blazer latch control changed in 82, blazer latch handle didn't change. Burb hinge didn't change, burb latch control changed in 82, latch handle didn't change. Trucks i do not know about.

    Side note, blazer and burb latch handle is the same part #

    yeah, glass is the same from 73 - 91

    Blazer and burb glass will NOT interchange
