    dont have pics of the install, but i made some tubing with washers welded to the top and bottom of the tubbing to keep the hardware centered. Then we ran a huge long bolt thru it and bolted it up, it was pretty easy actually.

    I used a crossmember from a pickup and made mounts to bolt it to the frame. Here is the crossmember bolted to the cab.

    Now here is the crossmember bolted to the mounts i made. It's a plate welded to the frame with a gusset in the front and rear.

    i built 1 of these awhile back

    i used a '75 k5 frame and tranny and transfer it had sm465 and np 205

    i sat an '82 k25 (gmc 3/4 ton frame) and the cab and front cap just sat on the frame and all mounts lined up.

    i've helped a couple of friends do some for them, not sure of their year models, but they where mid 75-80 k5's and early to mid(82-87) truck cabs, and they were identical, they went right on and mounts lined up, we even used the factory bushings and bolts on theirs,

    i had poly mounts and 2" body lift that came with new bolts, but after all this i thought they were all like these, just bolt up front cab and front cap then shorten the bed and the part you take out will take the fuel door out so you don't have to fill any holes ,but i filled my bed stake holes. hmm sure thought they were all like that. the blazers mounted like the truck crossmember they show all 3 blazers did.

    i guess we just got lucky or maybe it was the 3/4 ton cabs we were using, we were buying a 3/4 or 1 ton using its axels and sheet metal, and also buying a k5 to build 1 trazer as you call it and we found the better tranny/transfer in the blazers, i thought that was unusual also, and they were bone stock trucks and k5's we were gettin

    Who's got Trazer pics?!

    Yeah, the issue is when you use a newer K5 frame and 80's cab.
