    Stephen I just got three trucks from the navy. All three are 1 ton chevys.Two trucks have the 205 I think because of the round plate on them. What needs to be done to put them in my 84 blazer? Thanks

    1 tom gear will hold up to 44s. As for bolting up you need to relocate the spring perches and shock mounts on the rear axle. As for the front axle bolt it in and buy the crossover steering kit. If you dont then just use the steering arm off the truck. I would highly recomend the cossover though. Then all you need is the rear u joint Napa part # 447 I believe.

    The other replies pretty much lined it all out. The only thing really different between the 1-ton gear and your running gear is the spring perch spacing on the rear, otherwise it'll all bolt up.
    One good thing is you have good choices for which parts to use, and some leftovers to sell to finance the project!

    Since you got three trucks, and are using one set of axels, what happens to the rest? I would be interested in a 14 ff and D60 if you are selling!

    K5- because size DOES matter!

    Me too. I only need a Dana 60. Are you willing to part with them? What gears are they loaded with?

    Shouldn't it be called uncommon sense?

    "No-Spin" is Trac Tech's official name for the Detroit Locker that mounts into an existing carrier. (I.e. you don't have to buy the entire carrier). This is why a new one for a 14-bolt Full Floater only costs around $300. It just consists of the guts from a Detroit Locker.

    webshots distorts the image, but it shows "no spin with internal and external springs and with or without support case

    Also with these trucks if you look at the rear axle mounts on the springs they are alot different then a normal set up so you will need the spring plates and u bolts for a 3/4 ton 14ff rear axle. Also there should be a lever assembly where the rear brake line drops down and connects to the lines on the axle. That bracket can be cut so all that is left is the piece to hold the block the lines connect too. Yes you might have 205 t cases also. Most have the th400/208 combo but there were a few with the 205 instead of the 208.
