    i want to cut the half cab off my 78 and i need to know if that is going to lead to serious problems. i heard you would need to add a full roll cage. and the doors may not fit properly, and a million other pitfalls. i'd hate to try to find another k5 just to have a full convert. i see you guys on the site do some amazing things to your k5's but there's not many people in okla doing modifications

    After you cut the top off the body becomes very saggy, you will need a roll cage to help stiffen the body back up again not to mention the added safety. Look at the pics here: http://coloradok5.com/moneypit.shtml Robbie cut his off, well and a lot more now, but some good shots of how things work, you could PM him for more info, his username is Moneypit.
