    I have a relatively stock 1975 Blazer that I am starting a build up on. I do not have access to this truck right now but would like to start gathering some parts for this. Can anyone tell me with confidence whether this truck with the stock 10 bolts would be 5 or 6 lug?

    It would be 5-lug if it's a 2WD and 6-lug if it's a 4WD. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    1967-1970 2WD's were 6 lug with drum brakes all the way around, 1971-1972 2WD's were 5 lug with disc/drum combo.
