Has anyone done this? Took a 67-72 truck cab and put it on a Blazer frame? Ive seen it done in the mid 70 through the 80s but haven't seen one done for the 67-72. Just curious if the cab would bolt up to the fron cab mounts and I know you would have to mount some rear cab mounts foward.

I've seen it done, but don't know the details. 67-72 board member "nightmare" from houston, bought a 4x4 blazer frame from me about a year ago with intentions of lengthening it and making a truck out of it.

Instead of extending the frame shorten the bed.
That would look "unique" :lol:

There is a guy down the road from the house that took a 67 step side and mounted it on a 85 4x4 blazer frame. I know he had to move the mounts around alittle and he shorten the bed.....but it looks very sharp..........When i get home i will see if i can ride to his house and take a few pics of it...he always works off so i never get to see him much..........

Eric how long is the bed? I was thinking if it was to short it may look funny.
I will never forget when I was young my dad had a 79 2wd blazer. I told him I wanted to shorten the fiberglass cover to the back seats and put a bed cover on the 2/3 feet of the back. He said it might be cool but is was to much trouble to go through... who would have thought when I was 14 that I wanted a 2 door avalanche :)

I wish I could have done it back then. I don't think I know enough to be able to do it today muchless back then. Would have been cool though. Someone has to have done it by now.

I like it. although what is the point of having a step side without the step?
Well I guess I can let that slide considering how it looks. :D

I think that looks sweet! :2thumbs Especially with a 4x4 it shortens the wheelbase for easier use in the mud and woods.
