    Ok, oon my '73 Blazer we figured out that the front axle was swapped, according to the bearing numbers its a 77 axle, but the big problem is that the listing on the truck says it has full-time 4x4, but we cant seem to actually get it into 4 wheel drive, we narrowed the problem to eaither the hubs or the t-case, but cant really figure out anyhting from there. Later we are just going to change hubs, and hopefully get another front axle, dana 44 im hoping!

    :PWas that a rock or a Jeep!?B)

    Does it have full time or manual hubs in it right now? Does the front drive shaft turn? If the xfer case is full time and the front drive shaft turns,, then your hubs are most likely trashed. If it has manual hubs, and the xfer case has NOT been converted to part time and the front shaft turns, then your hubs are most likely trashed.
    If the xfer case has been converted to part time,, then you have a 2 hi AND a 2 low gear selection where the front drive shaft will not turn. The 4 wheel selection's are all the way forward and all the way back,, sometimes it takes some work to get the lever in those posistions.
