    Since I bagged my 4x4 I have pulled all the front wheel drive components. Just start at the spindle-to-rod CV joint. When the CV bearing is free, take out the six bolts that connect the drive axle (to each wheel) meets the transfer case flange. Once you have pulled the drive axles out get underneath and remove forward drive shaft (from tranny to tranfer case). Then unbolt transfer case, drop out, and your done. It sounds hard but it's really easy. I suggest buying a Hayne's manual first.

    would it be better to do that or replace the front axle and whatever else is needed? my dad keeps telling me to go to a junkyard and find a 2wd blazer and use the parts i would need off it.

    There is nothing to replace. A two wheel drive is just made without those things. No front suspension parts are interchangable between 2 and 4wd.

    That's all you have to do. If you happen to engage 4x4, it will just spin the U joint half sticking out of the front of the tranny. In other words nothing would happen. If you remove the 4x4 shifter to put in a custom console or something, leave the rubber boot bolted on and stick a rag in the hole. If you dont, VERY hot air blows in like the heater is on.

    what if I remove the 4x4 shifter and cover it with a piece of metal or something, then I put some of that heat shield stuff or whatever it is and cover it with carpet? will that work?

    Yeah if you can seal it with Thermo-Blanket that would be perfect. I'm just going to build and tweed a consol to cover the whole area.

    but if you build that console how are you gonna cover up the hole? same way Im thinking of? Do you know if there is a place where I can buy a console specially made for a 4x4 Blazer, because I suck at buliding things like that.

    I have never heard of a place that makes consoles like that. There always custom. I just left the rubber boot from the shifter on and I have air hoses running up through where the stick used to be. It plugs it pretty good.

    :D How do you put bags on the front of a 4wd with the 4wd system taken out? I also was wondering if the control arms(tubular) for a 2wd will work on a 4wd? Do the bolt to the frame mounts in the same place? Would you have to switch the spindels? Any help is appreciated.

    from what I've learned from Slim...No 2wd stuff is not compatible with 4wd...correct me if Im wrong Slim. About the bags well just let Slim post his pics, it's complicated.

    No that's right. Unfortunately we can't just swap out suspensions with 2wd's. They're completely different.
