    Cutting the floor is manditory unless your rolling some really small rims and tires. I've seen a blazer layed out on 18's with a step notch and kept the back seat. Its no way stock though. You will need to highly modify it.

    Well like Dragginblazer said. Don't forget you have to notch the crossmember. But Ever rear setup is NEVER the same. at least what I have seen done so far. Always has a lil or big difference from the next.

    I have just recently seen what a guy did so he could have a backseat(s). He was on 18's and was laynframe. He used I think a back seat from a F-body (camaro or firebird) because it was built to sit over/around the driveline. But he did alot of modifying for it to still fit right. Also, I was thinking of putting buckets in the back, no bench. That way you can mod the floorboard so that your drive shaft will tuck up along with the rear with out hitting anything.

    There is my info, I wish i had pics but I don't... hope that can give you guys sum ideas if you do run into problems.:smoker:

    You need to figure out what size rims and tires first. Then go from there. Theres no point in doing work to get it how you want it, then have to do it again when you upgrade to bigger rims/tires.
