    My dad had an 81 Trekker back in the day. Those were very similar, they were fiberglass from the back of the pickup cab all the way to the rear bumper. Is the Trailblazer fiberglass or steel? Other than the bodywork, the Trekker was just a 4x4 pickup. I'm pretty sure you can use all the same aftermarket parts on it that you would for a pickup of the same year. The only issue I can remember with the Trekker was getting new bumper brackets for the rear bumper after it got hit. They were different than a pickup and I believe dad had to get them custom made. I think they are super cool trucks, very slow I am sure, but it's a trail rig!
