I have heard that the S-10 is about the same size as the late 40s early 50s pick-ups. Is that true? If so does anyone know if this type of swap is worth doing or if it has been done and not look cobbled together? I'm thinking something like a bravada all-wheel drive type set up. Would it be better to use blazer or a pick-up chassis and what year(s) frame should I look for?
