    So I just pulled the diff covers on my burb that I picked up cheap. The guy I bought it from mentioned it recently got a rear end job. This got me thinkin these hillbillies probably slapped anything in.

    I pulled the front and got 4.11, sweet.

    Pulled the rear, 3.73,, &*%$#

    I knew it.


    This is supposed to be my cheap project. Damn PO.

    Well it looks like I'll keep my eye out for a different 14 bolt.

    Or I could slap some 4.11's in the 14 bolt. (anyone have some lying around)

    Or swap out the front, if I find 3.73.




    Probably be easiest to find a matching set too. :crazy:

    A 14-bolt can be scrounged up pretty easily for around for $75 if you look hard enough. 4.10's are pretty easy to find, if that's close enough for you.

    Yep Probably my best option is to find a matching 14 bolt.

    Just put bigger tires in the front :D I might have a 60 and 44 hp for sale that have 4:10's in them, I may even through in a t-case with it. Found a 60hp and 70 that is calling my name and my traitor bro just bought a ricer, well it was a toy pickup that will probally out wheel my Blazer but it's still a ricer, so he doesn't need it.

    As a side note and I don't recommend this my father drove a 4x4 for over ten years that he built. He left at a shop to do some workwhen he was building it and the shop changed front ends on him they were putting it in, but anyway the front was a 3:07 the rear 3:73 and it was a ten and twelve bolt. They stayed together, the t-case was a 208.

    as long as you don't put it in 4wd, you can drive it until the body falls off, i drove my Burb for almost two years with a 3.42 front, and a 3.73 rear until i could get the front to match, heck i had different sized tires on it, and actually wheeled it a few times with these gears, worked fine on loose stuff, didn't like the harded packed stuff, could feel it wanting to bind up.

    basically ran everything in 2wd, until absolutely needed the front axle pulling.

    definately do not attempt with a full time 4wd though.
