Im not as farmiliar with the superdutys as I am the ol' chevys, but if you have the donar truck to pull all the parts from, it's much easier. Buddy of mine did a '89 suburban conversion, the front ends of the frame are a lil diffrent on that, but it worked... If I was gonna tackle this project, I'd compair the 2wd with a 4wd side by side some time, with a tape measure in hand... check everything, make sure the shape/rise/fall of the frame where it goes up and over the front end is the same, or workable. Most likely, the rear will also need some work, the rear spring to frame hangers might be diffrent hights, and/or have blocks between the rear axle housing and the leaf springs... I'm all for a good project, I have about a dozen partial great ideas like this half way finished... it's the only downfall to haveing a huge garage, it gets full of things like this...
Buy the way, nice blazer ya got there... like the pic's in your sig... best looking grill/headlights they ever had... mine ain't so nice, but it's a tank!
Good luck with your project... the ticket is finding a cheap donar truck, that makes a big diffrence in the feasablity of the idea...
