    Blazer pickup

    I'm sure someone has whacked their Blazer off behind the door and turned the back into a pickup bed. Any pictures around?

    I find a lot of posts where the attached pics don't show. Besides which my internet connection measures download speed in days.

    I just got an 84 2 door and it's crying out to be molested. I need to do some rust repair in any case. Another 5 million welds won't matter.

    I figured on building a wall behind the seats and using pieces of a real pick up bed to make the floor and insides so it will be strong.

    Am I crazy????????? :nono:

    Sure you're crazy but don't let that stop you.

    That's kind of where my mind was going. I had planned about 8 inches past the door on an angle, using the original tailgate glass and frame as the rear of the cab.

    Was concerned about proportions and the bed part being really short and awkward. The squished pics in the above link don't help.

    Baby needs a lot of massaging


    Some more deep thinking may be in order before I get the grinder out.

    just my opinion.... i wouldnt cut it at the angle behind the door like everyone else, i would cut it straight down about the same width as a pickup behind the door, i would use a lot of the sheet metal from a pick up(the cab wall) then use some of the pickups rear bed sheet metal(like an elcamino) its hard to explain...i could get some pics together an p.m. them to ya if you like...

    On-D-FLOOR, that was my original thought. I would imagine you could use the sliding rear window or mock up a power window. Considered using the leftover roof as a metal tonneau cover/deck lid.

    I saw a pic in a magazine of a slammed early Bronco II 2wd done like that and I loved it.

    I spent some of the morning tearing the seats and panels out of the back. Seems long enough to look okay. Wife dragged me off to the yard sales and I scored a set of big tube side steps off a BIG 4x4. The lady says tose are side steps for her son's truck. I said they look like tube bumpers to me........... or they will be in the end.

    I'm sort of a Pontiac guy so I'll have to find a suitable name and make some badging up.

    ElPoncho?

    Must be something in my diet. Gary

    Been eyeballing the floor. There's quite a dip where the back seat goes. Trying to decide whether or not it's usable.

    Could make a 'drawer' from the interior with a hideaway about 5" high and a foot deep.
    well carpeted, it would make good tool storage.

    If it can be water proofed, a locking compartment under the front of the bed floor is possible.

    Or just call it lost space and make the bed floor level, or 2 levels, but that seems wierd.
    High in the back half, 4 inches lower in the front.

    Just box it out and use it as storage like an El Camino. Or it can be used as a nice little sub box area.

    exactly. on an elcamino the bed floor butts up to the cab wall flat and level.. the space inside can be used for storage or music, whichever you prefer...
