    Or do I have to settle for 5 1/4's? Thanks

    You mean by cutting a big hole in those kickpanels? Yea 6.5 will fit, but its a no-no. If you take the metal out there, its just one more place where the body can twist and move. The kickpanel metal is a good support area, so if it was me, I'd leave the sheetmetal alone. Get some Q-logic kickpanels...I have some for my daily driver and they're great.

    I got mine from a local shop for $150 a couple years ago. I think the custom ones go for around $200 now. You might want to try the universal fit ones because the Blazer panels might be big enough to use them, and they are $100. Try www.crutchfield.com

    Do you have any problems with the Emergency brake? I didn't think pre fabed ones would work, maybe custom built. Just my $.02

    Alot of the time you'll have to put a small bend in the emergency brake pedal. It even said to do so in the directions for my kickpanels. BUT those kickpanels were on my daily driver and not my Blazer...I don't know how much Q-forms affect a K5's brake.
