    Ok heres the story i just bought a 79 chevy pickup it has the "camper package" on it. Im buying it for the axles and thats about the only thing left on the truck. Now it has a FF14bolt in the rear and a dana 44 hd in the front i think. Would its rear have the gov loc or would it be open? also i know the ebrake cables have to be swaped can i use the ones off the truck on my 86 blazer or do i have to fab something up? And one final question are the brake lines on the axle going to hook up the the brake lines on the truck? Ive done axles swaps before but never on a chevy all on jeeps so i need all the advice i can get

    thanks

    There is no way to tell if it has a gov lock without looking. Or seeing if both tires spin...The ebrake cables on a 14FF are different from a 12 bolt or a 10 bolt and would have to be modified. The stock brake lines will work with some minor adjusting.
