    I dont think that 4to1 has what it takes for a Blazer. They are using them in things half the weight.

    There is no way to piece it togeather. You will have to buy a kit. The nice thing is you can use your existing driveshafts and SYE kit if you have it.

    Butch, as far as it holding up there are a couple of us here looking in to it. I want to run the 4 to 1 in Donna's K5. The 241 will deffinately hold up well in stock form so if it is a quality kit it may do well. I understand where you are comming from since the 231 kit is used in Jeeps and lighter weight vehicles. It would be nice to have other options other then the Doubler or other t cases.

    Yeah I think the planetary would make it, but I see bad things happening to the chain. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I know the 2.72 planetary is really strong, I'd suspect the 4:1 planetary. I'm not sure what gear it is but if it's like the 231 gears I wouldn't let a truck near it. They have to be timed and can end up only loading a couple of teeth which is why they sometimes come apart in jeeps.....
