Default 94 Full Size - Frame Off

On a scale of 1 - 10 how hard would it be to lift the body and roll the frame out to totally redo it? I've done a few Chevelles in the past and it wasn't that bad but trucks are new to me. I want to redo the frame, brake & fuel lines, suspension, etc and figure it's MUCH easier with the body out of the way. Of course I plan to do this AFTER the winter

Any input?

If you've done Chevelles then I don't see why you'd have a problem with the Blazer. Take it slow and use a few pairs of eyes to keep an eye out for anything that you might have missed while disconnecting.

I agree, if you have done frame offs on Chevelles, then a Blazer should be easier. The body will likely be heavier and is physically larger, but that is where the differences should end.

That's what I was figuring... thanks!! I will definitely have pics but, like I said, it'll be a while since it's November and I hate wrenching in the cold ! Besides... it's hunting season

Thanks again for the input
