Hey everyone, new to the Jimmy/Blazer trucks. I need a new top for mine and was wondering what years I can use, and also I read somewhere there is both a single wall and a double wall version. Can I use either? Anything to watch out for when buying one? located in St. Paul, MN. Going to check one out this weekend up in Duluth.

Anyone have any info on differences between 1970, 1971, 1972 Blazer roofs, and single verse double walled interchangeability?

The two tops should interchange between the years. The hold down bolt spacing looks to be the same. The double wall bolts to the bed sides with the fasteners going up into the nuts that are in the side walls. On the single wall the hold down bolts go through the flange into the bed which has welded nuts in it.

I believe there is a difference in the hatch so you will want to make sure the hatch has the right hardware with it.

My son's Blazer top is in my garage, so if you need any measurements from a 72 double wall top, I can get those for you.

Truck doors can be converted fairly easy if Blazer doors are not readily available.

If you want to modify a truck door, I can email you the information that you would need.

Door latch reenforcement is needed but they can be taken from scrap Blazer doors.
