I have a ' 77 chevrolet short wheel base that is very rusty and rough lookin'. I am about to purchase a ' 84 k5 blazer. Will the blazer body fit on the ' 77 frame. The ' 77 has a 6" suspension with 38" boggers that rub when I hit a hard bump. Will I have the same problems if I put a blazer body on?? should i get a 8" lift and swap the bodies?? Should I go with a body lift?? If so what about my brush guard?? I need help!!! [email protected]
I don't think the Blazer body, will fit on the truck frame![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] And I don't know what you would gain from changing the frame from the blazer anyway.
What I would do, is swap the suspension lift and probably the axles as well, from the truck to the blazer, and either add a 2" bodylift, or just trim the fenders.
When you get done swapping everything (all the best stuff onto the blazer) sell the truck.
Your brushguard is probably bolted to the bumper and not the frame so that should be no problem
The wheelbase is different, and body mount locations are different. You could swap the lift onto the Blazer, but tire clearance for a given lift is the same for a Blazer as it is for a pickup, so no gain there.
