    Hey guys need some help here.
    Want to make my Blazer into that 4x4 it should be. What do i need to get to do that? Do i need a whole new trans with a new front end with it? Can't find anything on this. Pretty much stuck on what i need to do any help is appreciated.

    Welcome to the site. I'd recommend posing your question in the Lifted and Offroad section. In addtion, what year Blazer? What mods, if any, does it have now? What are you planning to actually do with it? What engine/trans are in it now? All of that will help answer your question better.

    The only vehicle I have ever come across that was worthwhile to convert was a Bronco II. The 2 wheel drive even had a "dummy" transfer case and the right axles. All you had to do to convert it was stick a real transfer case in place of the dummy unit, throw some shafts, hubs and some simple wiring and you had a 4x4. I don't know of any other vehicles that are set up this way... Not even the BII's cousin and platform sharer the Ranger. What kind of blazer are we talking about here? Full size? S10?. In any case, it can be done, but it isn't a treat and it isn't going to be cheap. The best route is to get an entire donor vehicle for the parts, and even then there will be some fabrication and things won't fit.

    To answer your question, It is a major undertaking. If you don't have a great deal of skill and fabrication ability, it is virtually impossible.

    My best advice is to sell your blazer and buy one that is already set up the way you want.

    I have a buddy who is doing a solid axle swap on his blazer and last time I was back in my hometown it was coming together very well. I think he's got a Dana 60 rear and Dana 44 up front. Don't hold me to that. He said the s10 chassis was easy to convert. He is also a master mechanic he's been to more auto schools then anyone
