    How hard would it be to swap a '87 blazer body onto a '77 blazer frame? is it possible without major work? One other question that i have is that my 87 blazer with a shot motor has manual locking hubs on it. does that mean that it also have a transfer case conversion too? can i swap the t-case and hubs onto my 77? and is it worth it? Sorry i asked so many questions at one time but i have lots of them.

    T-case may or may not be converted; an '87 would likely have an NP208 versus the '203 in the '77. The hubs will interchange, so I'd move those over, but the t-case would be more work than it's worth, IMHO.

    '77 is the last year of the old-style body mounts; the '78+ have the rear seat farther forward and the different foot well. I think you'd have some fun moving the body mounts around. :|
