Re: Buyer's Remorse?

Sorry for my ignorance. I saw Cheyenne mentioned on the spid and thought that was Chevy only vs gnocchi sierra

Re: Buyer's Remorse?

I hate auto correct. Gmc not gnocchi. Here's my 72 blazer I got this summer. Our trusses are similar but mine are welded to the axle.

Re: Buyer's Remorse?

That's cool. I could handle seeing pics of your trusses.

I don't think the top belongs to my truck. Today I ran my fingers under the bed rail and the holes in the bed don't match the holes in the top.

Would y'all suggest getting a double wall top, or drilling holes to match the top and using "regular" bolts & nuts?

pic 1: drivers side, far rear, closest to the hatch.
pic 2: same side, next hole forward.

Re: Buyer's Remorse?

Everyone tries to find a single wall top so the top can be removed without removing the side panels on a CST equipped blazer. A double wall you have to run the bolts up from the bottom (keep the single wall you will be much happier. )

Re: Buyer's Remorse?

Where those trusses a dealer option ? I have the same ones and the gas tank skid as well but missing the transfer case plate
All you got to do is rip it apart have a good cry then start putting it back together . You'll soon rid your self of any remorse replacing it with great anticipation with a side of joy . Good Luck and giddy up !
