    14 bolts will have 14 bolts holding the rear cover on. the Full Floater will have an oblong shape to it in addition to what look like hubs coming out of the center of the wheel. If the gears are right (4.10's or sumthing) i would offer what ever you think they are worth. do they need rebuiling? re geared? so the price is a weird subject.

    They will both fit under your blazer without much problem. You will need to get new wheels though. (8 lug) As far as the 14 bolt gos there are 2 corprate 14bolts from GM. One is a 14bolt FF the other is a 14bolt SF. You can tell if it is a 14 bolt by counting the bolts holding on the differential cover. Also, the 14 bolt FF will have hubs sticking out of the center of the wheels and the SF will not. I would offer him a grand for the whole truck take the axles and part out what you dont need.

    When all else fails... Check the blinker fluid.

    They will bolt up to your Blazer but you will have to get a special U-joint and move the shock mounts.
    It should be a 14bolt FF (the one you want). They have a big hub sticking through the wheel and the semi floater does not.
    I am buying a set for $400. I wouldn't go any higher than that.

    I see most 3/4 ton axles go for around $500 a set. I'd offer him $100 and a case of beer and go from there!

    They will bolt up no sweat. I bought a 78 3/4 ton 4x4 complete for $350 a few months back. Maybe that will help you decide how much to offer him. I guess it all comes down to how much they are worth to you.
