89 blazer topper

I have heard that you can take the topper off of k-5 blazers. Could anyone tell me how difficult this would be? Thanks

Re: 89 blazer topper

You pull out the 6 bolts that hold it to the cab and the 10 bolts that hold it to the bed section. Stand up inside the bed area to break the seal loose. Get a (at least one) strong friend to help you lift up and walk back from the truck. Presto! You are now topless...

Re: 89 blazer topper

Depending on your year, there also is a 'hidden' bolt up under the back section by the tailgate. Not sure if you have to loosen the side panels to get at it but think you do.

Also your bolts might be an odd socket - Torx security - might have to get a special socket.

Yes, my 84 was like that. You have to loosen the side panels, it is near the upper corner there close to the tailgate.

<font color=blue>You might need a security torx bit. My 89 has those holding on the topper, and I've seen others with them too. Replace the rubber seal before you put the hardtop back on, because usually they dont seal right.

Re: 89 blazer topper

I have a soft top from my old 84 K5. I would have to look at it though, it's been in my mother-n-laws attic for many years. It used the turn style "snaps", and they stayed on the K5, so you would need those. It also used a "track" that mounts across the top of the roof, right where the top starts. The soft top had a folded over end that slide into it. I don't have a pic of the top, but you can see the track I'm talking about in this pic (chrome strip). Anyway, if you were interested, and it's in good shape, I'd probably let it go for cheap.
