What C-10 cab will fit on a 1971 Jimmy??

Ive got a 71 Jimmy with a rusted floor pan and supports. I am looking at a 72 C-10 cab. Would the floor pan work on my jimmy? I assumed they are about the same but I wanted to make sure and see if anyone knew for certain.

Thanks,

Cole

they are different, but I'm sure you could modify to fit. The floor in the cab area of your Jimmy will be shorter (front to back) than the PU floor plan.

Have you check with the board vendors to see if they have the replacement panels you are looking for?

Do you think that will be about the only difference? My step-dad keeps telling me it wont work because the jimmy/blazer body was all one piece.

You just have to modify the rear portion. If you search the board, other members have done it.

The mounting points on a PU cab/bed are different than the mounting points on a Blazer/Jimmy body.

Here is a pickup cab that I hacked up to make a cab for my Jimmy.
