Re: 1972 Blazer ls swap

are you talking about motor and trans? There is a guy here that takes the factory harness and reworks it and also reprograms the computer and all i have to do is connect 3 wires and it runs.

What part of Arkansas are you in? I'm originally from there but now live in north Louisiana. All my family basically lives from Arkadelphia to Benton.

I have a 1970 2wd that I'm wanting to do the same swap on. And I'm in need of a good body man.
