Discussion in '1969-1972 K5 Blazer | Truck | Suburban' started by Tuff, Jan 19, 2003.
That's a pretty cool cage.....I've never seen that cage or K5 before though.
My guess is "full custom"...the only thing that looks remotely like a "kit" are the rearmost 4-points which could have started life as a Smittybilt?
I like the cage, definitely looks custom. I wonder if its rear passenger safe in a rollover?
It looks like it could be a smittybuilt roll bar with 2 front cage kits to make the front 2 hoops.
It looks very much like a custom cage I saw being built in a magazine article. If it is, then none of the parts started life as part of a Smitty unit.
Hey Tuff, I want to ask you about your body lift. I am thinking about a 2" body lift, just making my own out of aluminum probably. If not I can get some cheap ones somewhere. I am not worred about them having to withstand a WHOLE LOT of pressure, I dont get into the big time off road stuff. I know nothing about the body things. I was planning on doing suspension lift, but I want to keep is smooth and suspension just plain costs too much. I also DONT have the slighteset idea on how those shackle flip deals work. So I have decided to do the 2" body lift. Besides, the original mounts need to be replaced, so why not kill 2 birds with 1 stone? About how much time did it take you do do the body mounts? Is it just a matter of removing bolts, jacking up the frame, sliding the new spacer in and a new bolt? Please answer these for me. Anyone.
i think that looks safer than any other cage ive seen in a first gen blazer.also dont have a clue who's it is but would like to see more pics.where did you get the pics???
How about starting a new thread and asking the whole fourm /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

Ask on the main board, and I'm sure someone will know.
update.the guy lives in texas but still no name.he is also on west texas off roads website.looks like he gets his parts from there maybe.
His name is Nevada, wheeled with him over EJS last year, he is a good friend of Matt Hodges who owns http://westtexasoffroad.com so I would give Matt a call.
