    Wondering if I bought a 3/4 ton Burb, would my current 14BFF rearend bolt into the Burb? LIkewise, will a 14BSF bolt into my Blazer? All this with little effort? /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Yes they should swap out just fine. The 14SF in mine came from an 85 3/4-ton burb.

    DEPENDING ON YEAR I JUST SWAPED A 14SF INTO MY 90 JIMMY
    OUT OF A 88 PICK UP I HAD TO CUT OF SPRING PADS AND RELOCATE
    THEM FARTHER IN. EVERY THING ELSE FIT RIGHT PARK BRAKE CABLES WERE A LITTLE LONG BUT ROUTED THEM UP OVER SPRINGS ARE OK NOW THE BEST PART IS ITS 4 INCHS WIDER AND TRACKS WITH FRONT. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    A 'burb is just a long version of a K5. All of your drivetrain is a direct bolt-on to a Sub. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    like steve said it depnds on what year you have and what it is swapping into.the bigest problem you'll have is the spring pads and e brake lines,depending on years again.just measure everything before you start ripping stuff apart just in case you have to change mounting hardware. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif
