    in the long/grueling search for 3/4 ton running gear for my blazer I happen to stuble across a 1-ton K 30 crew cab frame/runninggear in a guys driveway, I stop and talk to him and he says " 200 and its yours" so we sheel it out, DANA 60 front 1-TON corp 14 bolt rear, and a NP205 case I cant believe i got all this for 200 BUCKS! gears are perfect in the axles only downfall is that they have 4.56's but hey Ill pay the 500 to have the ring and pinions changed!...I still cant believe this... Also i know that the 1-ton rear will bolt up to my 71 K5 with teh exception of shock mounts, but is the fron dana 60 a bolt up? thanx in advance!

    I agree, You suck!!! If I found that deal I'd be the second one there and be just in time to see someone like you buy it! [​IMG]
    Too bad the Dana 60 won't work in your truck, I guess I could take it off your hands so it doesn't clutter up your yard! [​IMG][​IMG]

    4.56's will be OK but I only have 33's right now so my poor 468 will be turning 3 grand at 55 probably

    I have a 3/4 ton 14B and a 1 ton 14B and the perches are different the one ton bolts up on 72 and earlier and 3/4 ton bolts up on 73 and later but i think the fronts are all the same.

    By the way that was a <font color=red>SWEEEEET</font color=red> score on those axles.

    Did i mention that i HATE YOU [​IMG]

    If you decide to change the gears I would be intrested in the 456s from the 14b
