Not into the graphics, but if I was gonna do a '73-'87 I'd send it to them. They do awsome work with that year range truck. :head:

What kinda idiots would do that? I liked the fact you could remove the roof and thought thats was what made these blazers so badass .... oh well, I still like it, but would like it more if it could go topless :boobs:

From what I've heard (never having owned one) taking the top on and off is a royal PITA. I have a friend with one, and he keeps saying that he's gonna yank the top off of it for a beach trip, but I've yet to see that happen! :D

Plus, I don't know that ANYONE's done that yet. I think it looks really clean--kinda like a pre-Tahoe look.

I drove an '84 K5 before my truck now, and yeah, it's a pain in the arse to put it back on. It's really heavy.

it is not hard at all it takes about 15 mins to get the bolts off and it two people to lift it. me and my brother both had one we took the top off all the time you just need to check the weather.

That thing is badass...and the tops aren't that bad to take off...ive had mine off and one like 5 times this year. Worst part for me is takin the bolts out for the seat belts...91s have the seatbelts in the rear connected to the top. Ive always thought about sellin my truck and baggin a 2wd...maybe ill just finish up this blazer, find a 2wd blazer and bag that instead of an actual truck...slammed K5s look badass...

Hell, if I were you, I'd just keep your nice '91 and convert it to 2wd. They stopped making the 2wd K5s after the '82 model year, but it's easy to convert them. All you need is a 2wd front crossmember and steering box and the 2wd leaf spring hangers.

I have an '84 K5 Jimmy and I have a donor '82 2wd K5 frame laying around if I ever get the time and money someday.
