Default blazer/bronco conversion

hey y'all. I have a 2dr 2000zr2. I've always liked the look of the bronco, because of the removable back end. I was wondering if anybody's ever done this to my kind of blazer, and what to know if I decide to do it. thanks

I know for the first gens there was some kit or something (I think it was actually a OEM option for a year or two) to have a removable topper on the two doors

"Ok , So here is the skinny on these tops. These were engineered by Flint Engineering Systems and manufactured by ( ASC ) American Sunroof Company. These were made in 1985 and a total of 1500 were made 500 of which were Olympic Editions.That left only 1000 to be distributed for retail sale.These were available only from the dealers and only as a dealer installed option ( not a factory option ). These would not pass Chevrolet crash test so they were never offered as a factory option. They are very rare and found mostly on the East and West coast.You could also buy a soft top with the hard top when purchased new. I have a 1985 4X4 Blazer with this ASC conversion. The dealer could install these in one day with no welding or body work required.They simply removed the windows and interior panels. With the headliner dropped one will find a reinforcing body brace and this served as the cut line on the top , the rear cut line was the body line under the rear windows. the inside rear cut line was the tailgate line.Once the top was cut then a total of 8 brackets were installed 3 on each side and 2 on the upper front roof line. There was also a long bracket at the top of the roof line which was used like a support. Rubber seals were installed using soft top snaps and screws , then the hard top was placed on top and bolted down. Well hope this helps and hope this answers some questions."
