    Ok I know someone parting out his burb and its got a 6.2 diesal what are some things that are good to get from this thing for my blazer any suggestions. I might even try and get the engine. I dont know yet what other things he has but I think its a 2wd. Are the springs any good for me?? And will the dash and bezel work for our blazers as well. Thanks for the tips.

    Body wise, basically everything on the burb from the front doors forwards will fit on a blazer, pretty much same for the interior. Springs, don't really know, if they are 52" rear springs, then yes, if they are 56" rear springs, if you move the spring hanger, they will work. Everything above pretty much also depends on the yr, the major split in yrs(features, looks)was in 81.

    You'd be best off asking the going to diesel in the diesel forum. No i doubt there was any changes in that 1 yr period, so everything will swap right over /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
