    I thought about something like this, years ago, but I was going to do the big Blazer thing. Cut the back end off and add the rails, supports, etc., so I could bolt the roof back on.
    The only ones I've seen have just had plywood for the new cab back, and looked cheap.

    I guess hit the salvage yards and see if you can find a donor cab, to use the back off of it, or check out the Blazers and do the project I never got to.

    Good luck,

    At my work theres a mid 80s chevy crew cab, it used to be an old refrigerator truck. Its been broken down for years but my boss is having it scraped and i should be able to get the back of the cab to use.

    I saw one a few years ago at a truck show being used as advertisement for a custom car bodyshop in Mobile, Alabama.
    They used the back wall of a GM truck cab for theirs. It looked real good, almost factory.
