    im converting my 95 Z71 to solid axle. i want to use a chevy dana 44. my 241 tcase has the output on the wrong side. i have a ford dana 44,,but i want to use the chevy one. my 241 has the tcase shifter on the drivers side and it has a electronic speedometer. does the 241s off the early 90s blazers and subs that have a solid axle have the electronic speedometer and left hand shifter for the tcase?

    oooooopsss,,,,,,was that your lowrider i just ran over.

    I *think* that the later models have an electronic speedo. 90-91. I know my 89 doesn't though. You might look at the specifiactions link at the top and see if Steve listed it in the different model years.

    The shift on my 241 comes straight up through the middle of the floorboard. My suggestion would be to just find one and look at how the linkage is.

    Good luck

    My '91 SM465 - 241 has the electronic speedometer and the shifter is on the right (passenger) side of the case.

    My 90 241 has the shifter linkage on the passenger side as well. If I were you, I'd just use the Ford axle or sell the whole truck and get something older.[​IMG]
