    I am looking for a clean K5 body and frame somewhere near Dallas, TX. I don't really even need the front clip. Year model is not all that critical, but would prefer 70s or possibly early 80s. Might consider a complete truck if price is right (mechanical condition not important).

    i have a rust free blazer tub for sale, it is an 81, i have the title, it has had square tube welded along the bottom of the tub for sliders and has had the dash hacked out of it. i think it would be a good candidate for a dovetail front and rear. the front fenders also come with it and have had tube welded along the bottom also.
    again, this is just the tub and maybe the frame, but the running gear and suspension is staying.

    big4x4ride,

    I could probably use one of your frames, but Corpus is too far. The cab does not sound like something I can use.

    Your cab does not sound like something I can use either. I am looking for something more factory original.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Ok, I would prefer to find a body and frame, but I am at the point where I will consider just a frame - no accident damage or significant rust. Anyone fairly local have something?
