    What\'s the differance in the \'87 & the \'88 frames?

    I've noticed that there are not alot of manufacturers that list any nerf/step bars for the '73-'87 model K5...most state "88-91".

    Is there a differnce in the frames?
    I just bought a set of chromed stainless steel step bars for my wife's 2 door Tahoe for Christmas...it's the same part # as for the '88-'91 Blazers....thinking of holding them under my '87 and seeing if they would fit or not. Anybody done this?

    There is absolutely no differences between the '87 and the '88-'91 frames. All are the exact same thing...as long as you are looking at the "V" series Blazer.

    Many aftermarket companies and stores get confused with the "K" and "V" series designation when ordering or getting parts for these trucks. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
