    Q #1 Will the front bumper from a CUCV Blazer fit on an 84 GMC K3500?

    Q #2 Are the radiators from the diesel trucks the same as one from a big block truck?

    #1 Yes, frame mounts are the same.
    #2 No, Diesel radiators are the biggest available with built in engine oil cooler and tranny cooler. Gas motors did not have the engine oil cooler. But you should be able to use it for a 454 without any trouble if the inlet/outlet are on the correct sides.

    The bumper should fit fine.

    The radiator will fit your truck but it most likely will be a good bit wider. Be sure to get the hold down brackets for the rad just in case the big block rad brackets don't fit.

    You'll have to extend the tranny lines to use the diesel radiator,at least on some years--my 82 6.2 has them on the drivers side--I'd second grabbing the radiator upper support and the shroud from the diesel donor truck too,my 82 6.2 looks a lot different than my 79 C10 one does. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
