    Does anybody know if a Dodge Dana 60 will work on an '82 Blazer? Also what is the best transmission transfer case setup?

    yeah it will, try the search function on this site. I think it,s just a 1/2 inch too wide, just pry the springs into place. thats the usual method (I think)

    The guy says it is an '80's model, maybe late '70's, he has a bunch of old 4x4 sitting in his yard.

    I just put one under my '87 Jimmy, with 52's and 7.25 shackles and everything bolted up just fine. I havn't run the BOM on the housing to see what year mine came out off as I wasn't really concerned since its a Kingpin housing.

    Does this cause problems or is there a way to fix it?

    Also, is everything else the same? (bolt patterns, brake lines, etc) Any gotcha's to be aware of?

    Does anyone have a good source of information on this swap? I don't want to go pick up an expensive paperweight that won't work or will cost too much $$$ to put under my truck.
