    I was looking in the classified section of the paper yesterday afternoon and came across something that sparked my interest. There was a 77 3/4 Chevy with 14bff (not sure about the front) for only $500. My guess is the truck itself is in pretty bad shape, but I was curious if this axle would be any good to me. I've got and 84 K5 and I was wondering if the front and rear axle from a 77' swap in. I appreciate the help.

    Should bolt right under. If it's a '77 it could be either a Dana 44 or 10-bolt front. Only thing is your e-brake cables will be different.
