    Well heres the story iam planning on getting a later model fullsize blazer and the idea of 35's locked on 10 bolts dosent sit well with me soo I was just wondering how hard it would be to swap in a 14 bolt in the rear and a Dana 60 or Dana 44 up front would it be like a direct bolt in or what?? Any info or tips would be greatly appreciated!

    Run a search - this has been answered many times. Also, post this in the Garage. No one is going to see it here.

    You'll get some traffic here but for a generic question, get to the Garage forum.
    Running 35's on 1/2t axles actually works pretty well, if you're going to start building the rear, I'd look at starting with a 12 bolt but other than that, if you're wanting to run 35's for now, the 1-ton swap isn't necessary.
