Blazer half cabs

Anyone know how many different companies made half cab kits for Blazers? I found one today and its all steel, (steel top and bulkhead). It seems I remember one that used a fiberglass top.

Re: Blazer half cabs

Mine is also fiberglass, I have never seen a steel one.

If you get a chance post pics of it.

Re: Blazer half cabs

Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics. I've seen a few of the fiberglass versions and didn't realize they were still being produced. The guy is asking for 800 for this one.

Re: Blazer half cabs

That's interesting, the bulhead looks like mine.

I don't think they still make the fiberglass cabs (every few years or so I hear rumors about it, but as far as I know they don't)

Thanks, Rg

Re: Blazer half cabs

Bought a fiberglass one last year from a guy in Dallas said he was not going to make anymore materials were to high to make any money. Anyone know where you can find a bulkhead?

The bulkhead wasnt a very complicated piece to make, any sheetmetal shop should be able to bend one up for you....i sold mine to luv2xlr8, im using a pickup header panel, didnt like the way the bulkhead fit

Rustyparts had the demensions on one of his posts, i think, if not maybe you could contact craig. Dont know if blazermans panel is the same as a fibreglass one....

Youll just have to wait, and keep your eyes open. Only saw three come up for sale in the last six years, and i bought one. There was one for sale three months ago in the classified section, but i think it sold.....

If i see one, ill let you know

You could post a WTB, but you would have to be blue

He has been taking names for 10 years now, and still hasn't made any except for this one.

Re: Blazer half cabs

That would be me. I'm having a hard time finding someone to produce 2 or 3 at a time for a reasonable price. The way it looks now I would have to sell them for 1500 each.
