I've thought about doing this, because I'm getting old and the real thing is not noted for it's creature comforts. I've seen guys put in AC, sound proofing, seats, stereo, ect, but I haven't seen anyone take an 84 diesel Silverado Blazer and add on all the military parts from bumper to bumper. You don't need any of the interior military stuff unless you intend on adding radio equipment and it would look really out of place in a silverado interior anyway. But the outside could be made to look CUCV easier than adding all these accessories to a M1009. As far as under the hood stuff, change out the intake. You don't need to convert to 12v since you already have it. Maybe somebody has done this and I just missed it. Guys that want a bone stock CUCV could be disgusted, but guys that do all the modifications may see it different, it won't have any military bones, but how much does that matter to ya?
