    FYI that isn't a 10 bolt housing.

    Don't know my 12 bolts well, but I'm assuming they were 8.8" ring gears (or whatever he listed) and that's what it is.

    Don't want anyone to bid on that and be disappointed. Not like anyone needs a bare 12 bolt rear truck housing either though I can't imagine. :)

    Just a thought, but if someone needs one and you guys look real hard, there are 3 complete 10 bolt fronts for sale on Surplus Center. ;)

    Would that column bolt into my 78 Blazer automatic, or what would it take?

    It will bolt in, turn signal switch is a bit different (longer style) you can buy a conversion thing from Painless for that, wipers will need new motor/control box if you want to use the column wiper switch, otherwise you could just leave your dash mounted switch. Dimmer switch will need moved to the column (connector fits, might need to lengthen it a bit) But other than that, I believe it will bolt right in.

    "It will bolt in, turn signal switch is a bit different (longer style) you can buy a conversion thing from Painless for that, wipers will need new motor/control box if you want to use the column wiper switch" -- Could someone please elaborate on this information. Like what do I need to order from Painless and do I just need the wiper motor, what else might I need? Difficulty level?
