    WAY WAY WAY too much. Military blazers just have 10 bolts in them same as standard blazers. In fact they suck cause they have 3.08 gears.

    seems like an ok price IF they haven been swaped out for 1/2t gear, if so then no.

    if its a d60 and a 14ff seems like a good price to me could alwas offer a little less /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    If they are off a blazer then they are garbage, alot of people dont understand that chevy didnt do anything "special" for military trucks, we got blazers and k 30s, other than the diesels and 24 volt systems basically the same as off the lot.

    Military blazers have 10b's with 3.08 gears, exactly the same axles under a civi blazer. Infact, when I pulled out my stock 3.08 10b's and called a boneyard asking $100 for them they litterally hung up on me, really. I wound up giving them to a yard for $50 and lied saying it had a gov lock in it so I could at least get the $50. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    BTW- Paul. I havent been lately, but I found 2 new fourhweelers to go to uwharrie with us next season. My neighbor drives and xterra on 33's, and my friend has a wrangler on 33's. They arent the most capable rigs, but the guys really arent afraid to go up big trails. I know for a fact they, or at least the jeeper, would go up daniel with us. Anyways, I havent been since september because elliott left for canada b.c. in september. Hes usually my main wheeling buddy. Maybe I can get one trip in before it closes this year. Hows your truck doing>

    if you want military or have a chance to get them look for the M1008 that is the heavy duty 1 1/4 truck with dana 60 front and a 14ff in the rear usually at 4.56 gears. The M1009 has only a regular Blazer rears with a 3.08.

    Thanks for that info on the mil blazers. I believe that he has a set of Dana 60 front and 14bff rear for sale. How much do you think they should go for.

    The ideal thing would be to buy a 1009 Blazer and then buy a "residue" 1008 truck (usually the body is trashed on these and they are missing engine/tranny and so are sold as "residue" without a title) and pull the axles out.
