I have the 88 blazer and the motor is a 5.7L. I had extensive rust under the rear bed. I could not find anyone who was willing to replace the bed because the rear bumper and underlaying framework also had to be removed and repaired. I ended up using fiberglass mats to make the repairs since none of the rust was on stress points. I used an rust converter primer paint prior to using the epoxy/fiberglass mat repair. The repairs are solid but I figure that it will only last a couple of years. With 99,000 miles on the car, I am planing to replace it then. I would recommend that you lift up the carpet and underlying material to expose the bed prior to making any major repairs. This may be a lost cause. Good Luck, Rich.
