    <font color=blue>I took the hardtop off today and found out how bad my tub really is. It's rotted around where the rocker panels are (or used to be) and when I shut the door, the body moved. A previous owner put floors in it, but they used p/u floors so the crossmembers under the tub are in the wrong place, plus there is no rocker boxes. There's a truck like mine in the local body shop that was just finished and he had new boxes, I'm gonna find out where the owner got them from.
    Would it be easier to get another tub? Where can I find one? Isn't there a place that ships them up north from Arizona?</font color=blue>

    Try DRMS it is a site that lists military items at auction. I picked up my tub (actually whole blazer no drive train) for $275 and sold the rear ends for $225. And there usally pretty soild to.

    <font color=blue>That's a good idea, but I don't think the military used 1st gen blazers</font color=blue>

    Ther are no replacment tub for oer year blazer and they all move some when the tops off I added a 6 point roll cage which help alot but the door still bind at time and things still move around some and always have! GM placed door shim plate at the top rear of the door to help this Problem. You have to remeber that 1st gen are just that 1st gen and are all about 30 years old!

    I understand the jeep thing I drive a BLAZER!!
