Wheel base

I've done some searching but can't get a positive answer on this. I am looking for a 2WD Blazer but since the are really rare, I have access to a 2wd pick up rolling chassis and I also have a couple 4wd Blazers laying around. My question is that I have heard that the 1st gen Blazer and the 1st gen short bed regular cab pick up have the same wheel base at 108" Does anyone have info on this. My idea is to swap a Blazer body onto the pick up chassis. Sure i'll have to move some mounts but if the wheel base is close, shouldnt be too bad. Any ideas???

Re: Wheel base

A 2 door Blazer has a shorter wheelbase then the p/u trucks, a 4 door is closer but the frame is crooked in the rear among other things.

Re: Wheel base

Someone else and I were trying to figure this out the other day.
First thing different is a pick up has a tall front bed mount that a blazer does not use.
Second thing was we looked at the front of a LMC catalog and it shows wheel base length.
Standard cab short bed p/u is 108"
4 door blazer is 107"
2 door blazer is 100.5"
And thier funky pics in the catalog just shows an extra cab mount mid rear for the four door.

Re: Wheel base

down here in the south 2wd blazers are easy to find. you must be in the north. i came from rhode island and 4wd is the norm, but down here its the opposite, 4wd is rare and 2wd is all over.
