will it work...

Ok here's the deal I bought a totaled four wheel drive blazer.... I have a 97 s10 tutu s10 that I wanna turn into a four wheel drive.... Would it be as simple as bolting all the ifs stuff under my truck? The only real problem I see is the starter would be in a bad spot.... The good thing is the blazer still runs and drive so worse comes to worse I could swap all of the drive train.. Nit kinda wanted to keep the tutu power haha... So can it be done and WILL IT WORK

Re: will it work...

Re: will it work...

They have two totally different types of front suspension and the front halves of the frames are completely different due to that.

Re: will it work...

Will it just swap? No.

Can it be made to work? Yes, with a LOT of work and experience. If you have to ask if it can't be done, you probably can't handle it.

Would it drive? Maybe downhill...

This, no sense in re-engineering something that existed from the factory on a cheap pickup truck.
