    i was wondering if a tailgate from a 79 will work on my 88. In the gm parts catalog they list a 73-84 and 85-91 so im not sure what the diff is . any ideas would help

    Truck tail gate?? If so, yes...which is confusing because of the rear split. But...When I converted my 89 to a full convert., I bought the softop and pick-up tailgate from MTPockets. His was a 79 and it bolted right on.

    Any blazer tailgate from 73-91 will interchange, only thing that is different is the manual or electric part of the window, if your have electric and the donor is manual, just sway the parts and your good to go /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
