    I have a good Meyer frame on a 1986 K5 Blazer. The truck is finished. Hell, it was finished 3 years ago but we've nursed it along.

    Looking for a 'new' backup truck, to replace the Blazer. How long did Chebbie use the same truck frame? Can I go as far as 1993 or 1994 year model pickups? Not looking for another Blazer, but for a long bed pickup that might have some use during the summer months.

    Thanks

    Brett

    Your 86 K5 frame is the same as 1/2 & 3/4 pickups up through 87, Subs/Blazers/Yukons up through 91. I believe you could also get one tons with that frame through 91. To put it on a newer truck you would need at least new push plates.

    sorry 2cor517 I took way too long to reply, but yep you are correct I have seen some 89 and 90' 3500 with the same frame and body as the old ones.

    I have an 86 Chevy C30 Dump w/a 8 Western Traditional mount. The dump is finished for plowing but I don't want to get rid of the plow (equipment is equipment you know?) Does anyone have an idea if I can retro fit (a welder) that Western to a 90-95 Ford 250/350 or Chevy 2500/3500 series trucks? I'm in the Chicago area and could use some real advise and a retro fitter contact. Help a guy in need.
