half cabs for blazers

Any one here familiar with Creative Products of Minn. half cab conversion panel for 76 - 87 blazers? That's the fiberglass rear cab panel that makes the blazers shortbed pickups. I'd like to hear from someone who has installed one of these. How's the fit and finish, etc. Satisfied? Thanks, Boog.

Re: half cabs for blazers

Yep, I bought one afew years ago, and am wanting another to build up another Blazer. I have been trying to find these people now for about 6 months. It seems that they closed their doors for business. I am hoping that some other company will buy the machining and start building them again. Sorry, I wish I had better news. You might post on parts for sale/wanted for a used one. If you find two I want one.

Just read your post again---dumb me--you asked about fit and how hard to install, etc. The fiberglass piece comes with sliding rear window intact. It just bolts in the same bolt holes as your regular top bolted into the back of the cab. It just goes down to the top of the bed and then has a steel bulkhead that bolts on down to the floor. I really disliked that part. I could not get it to seal up no matter what I did. It was really "mickey mouse"! As far as looks and functionality, the cab back is outstanding! It is double fiberglass so you don't have to worry about drilling a hole in it and the screw going out the back!

Re: half cabs for blazers

The company in question is at www.creproonline.com. That's Creative Products Online. Their site is still up and working. Do the mounting bolts really go through the back of the panel and left exposed? They are priced at $695 for the top and bottom panel kit plus shipping and offer a hard bed cover for about $700 too. Don't know if i'd give $800 for a cab kit that didn't fit and seal off good. Anyone have any pics of trucks with this kit installed? Thanks much, Boog.

Re: half cabs for blazers

Why do they only fit up to 87 blazers? Thought thet were interchangable up till 91?

Their site did not work for me? Is the addy correct?

Re: half cabs for blazers

You are correct. They are the same to '91. The email addy is correct. I just opened it myself to be sure. Did you put in 2 o's or 1. Try it again. www.creproonline.com and see if it works for you. This is the only company I've found making these conversions. There a couple making the vinyl type with bed cover included. Then there are the ones like on the project blazers at k5.

Re: half cabs for blazers

[b]<font color=black>First off, I'm just curious: I'm not trying to judge anyone who tries it, I just want to understand it. No offense intended.

Well, here goes:
Why on earth would you WANT to convert your Blazer to a P/U? Seems you'd be losing a lot more than you gain. Why not just trade the Blazer for a P/U? Why not just make the back seat easily removable and use a soft-top?

Inquiring minds want to know....

Re: half cabs for blazers

I saw something on a K5 somewhere (I don't remember if it was here in Cheyenne or in Greeley, CO) that was kinda something like that...

They had a soft top that came down behind the back seat, so they had an extremely short bed in the cargo area... I'd say they made that on their own, but it was pretty cool... not something I'd do, but I liked the way it looks

79 K5 Blazer Cheyenne.... That's all I have to say about that.

Re: half cabs for blazers

Hard top is nice and probably better insulation in cold weather. Hard top is harder to cut through for potential thieves. By keeping the blazer you are able to keep the ability to remove the back portion of the cab and thus have a convertable. With a pickup this same ability would take a decent ammount of time cutting sheetmetal. Hope those all made sense
