    Does anyone know what year they changed the width of the frame at the front?

    I have a plow from a 1974 blazer and now I have an 86 blazer.....Will it fit or is the frame wider on the 86??

    thanks

    There are differences in the frames(mounting holes, brackets, and some little stuff) but the width was the same.

    frame the same...

    I have a plow frame and blade setup for sale off my 74 K20(which in reality WAS a 77 K10 when it started!)...ALL 73-87 frames are the same except as Sled Dog mentioned some minor differences..but the plow frame should fit 73-87,and also the 1 ton "old style" cab trucks up to 1990 or so..I think with a little tweaking it could be used on 67-72 4x4 trucks too..frames are very similar.. :crazy:

    need to modify the ends just a bit and pop holes in the correct places. will fit with tiny mods.
