    i wouldn't... if ur gonan put the 350 in it woudl be nice to throw an AWD transfer case and have an awd 350 truck. a lot of guys do jsut take all the 4wd shtio out though.. but thas kinda crappy if u ask me. to me it woudl be more logical to sell it or trade it for a 2wd

    dude fuck that i was doing 96 mph and i engaged my 4x4 and it whent right in no problem and you won't lose power becouse all the gears are moving just as fast as your rear end i know what your thinking dude your wrong well i'm not i did 2 years working at ITT and we found that if you have a 305 with 320 hp then you can burn all 4 tires off punch burn and so we put tall tires on it and we ran a 11.24 in the 1/4 now all you kids that have 350 well sorry lol

    I know a dumbshit who engaged his 4X4 at like 30 and he flipped his truck several times. Unless you have the pushbutton 4X4 you will kill yourself.

    oh yea and one more thing the more gears the engine has to spin the less effective the power is making you lose some overall horsepower better traction less overall HP or something like that you lose 30 percent through the trannie so im betting you lose maybe another 5 when 4x4 is engaged maybe

    sparkitorparkit. Let me rephase would I think you said:The 305 had too much power so you put taller tires on it (presumably to kill some power) and ran 11.24 in the 1/4.

    Who built that motor? or was it really an 1/8 mile.

    No doubt. Unless that 4x4 blazer weighs like 1500 lbs, 320 hp aint gonna cut it.
