    I think he was looking at an 80's something Diesel if I recal correctly. So probably unless they've been swapped. Hey Jorge, just count the number of bolts on the cover of that big round thing on your front and rear axles (differential). This should give us an idea of what you're running <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.coloradok5.com/axleguide.shtml>http://www.coloradok5.com/axleguide.shtml</A>

    Well,i still haven,t the Blazer,i might to pick-up it in two weekends or so,i don,t know how many bolts the differential has.when i have the truck,i,ll say to you o.k?
    Is cause i need the Blazer to pull from a car trailer,about 2-2,5 tons with a car onto it,and i,m afraid the gears are excessively longs.Here is a assisstence garage,and they has a stock 89´suburban for pull from a this kind of trailer.
    wath do you think about?Thanks again (and excuse my english.)

    Pulling a car trailer... definetly have to say if it is on a regular basis then get a 3/4 or 1 ton... A diesel is so so ... not a whole lot of help until you get moving or over about 65 miles per hour IMO. Nothing hauls a car trailor better then my buddy's 454 Vortech 3/4 ton... [​IMG]

    Excuse me ,i don,t understand very well.What do you mean with this?The 6.2 diesel is not enough power to pull a car 2ton trailer?It can,t be.Here in Spain the most popular car for this kind of works, is the Nissan Patrol,with a 6 cilinder diesel engine,2.8-3.2 liters, 4,6diff gears,90 h.p,23,9mkg of torque(here the ibf are not used,but the 6.2 diesel 135h.p has 34mkg).I don,t think the blazer can,t pulls better than a Nissan.No?
    Please let me know your opinion.Thanks.

    To pull that trailer loaded you need a 12bolt rear end and 3/4 ton suspension. You might make it stronger by putting an add-a-leaf in the rear and gearing it lower would help. The diesel should pull it okay. The 6cyl diesel you were talking about is probably an inline 6cyl diesel which is a very good design for pulling. Your diesel is a v-8. It's still okay though. The truck needs to be able to handle the weight too though.

    What I ment is I'd personally rather have a big block truck to pull heavy loads. Deisels are great for milage but they kinda struggle to get moving until the turbo kicks in on them (hopefully it has a turbo). I also notice they tend to struggle w/ grades and going up hills... just my two cents worth... But yeah it would be a heck of lot better then a six banger LOL

    Yes, the truck i was talking is a inline six cilinder.So,if the diff has 12 bolts ,wath does it means this?is it a 4.56 gear?Can i differentiate it with this?Other question,i was thinking to install a 4" suspension ,Tuff Country or Rancho type,is it good to stand the trailer load?However i ,m not going to tow the trailer very times,only sometimes.
    Thanks again.
