thanks for the help. It's freeking 12 below zero here and I cant take it anymore.!!!!
Yah my truck is well overdue for an oil change, but there's now way I'm gonna lay in the snow and do it when it's 9 degrees out!! I wish I had a garage big enough to fit my truck in /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
figured it out I think scabalanche

I took a spare top I had and cut 32"s or so out of the window section. seamed it together with fiberglass matting,tigerhair,and filler.BANG!!!! instant scabalanche!
After lifting my stepside to unuseable height I needed a truck again bad.Even One with a short shortbox.I used the blazer gate as the new back wall,and replaced it with a P/U tailgate.The rear seat is still usable,as is the roll down back window, plus it takes the same amount of time to remove as the factory top.
thanks for the pics. I think it looks pretty cool. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
That's cool! did you do the top modification?
thanks!!Did it all myself.

very cool I am looking to do a cab cover for the 75 blazer, just over the front passengers though, any one done that?, it would make it like the 76-91 with the top off.
Bet it takes half the time for the heat to get it warmed up /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
thanks for the input
I could make that for you.all fiberglass or with a bolt in rear wall with a back window(stationary or roll down) or I might sell mine.
i just did my ball joints at 9 degrees on saturday.that was fun.luckily i had a friend who loaned me a spaceheater to do the job with.only way that i could be out in that for 5 hours.the /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifdrives real nice now /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
very cool!!! glad to see you made it over here!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
At one time they were available. US Body has a top for a truck that you could make work. Just a matter of making the fill pannel and a latch system. I think they copied the 73-75 blazer for the windsheild header.
www.usbody.com fair warning it's pop up hell with their own adds.
would like more info and details on your conversion. this is an awesome mod with a "10" on the coolness factor. this would solve alot of my problems with family hauler and the need for occasional use of a pu. im interested in the mods that need to be done to the interior and if any welding needs to be done. is anything permanent ? additional up close pics would be cool. pm me if need be. thanks.
