    Body swap?

    I've had my blazer for almost 2 years now and haven't done anything but gut it and a cowl hood and a new grille. The reason being is that my jobs unstable right now meaning I'm getting laid off and called back and my Ram is costing me an arm and a leg. The blazer has alot of rust, I mean alot. The quarters are rusted through, the pinch is pretty much not existent in the rear and originally I was going to repair the rust. But after a lot of thinking I decided on a new body. I'm going to try and find a 4x4 with minimal rust that's cheap, doesn't matter if it runs or not. My question is will a 1st gen 4x4 body fit on a 2wd frame, like are the body mounts the same? I would imagine so but if not, what other problems am I going to run into? I told myself I wouldn't start the body drop until the bodys repaired, so now I'm just going to have to wait till I get the new body. Let me know what u guys think. Oh yea its a 2 door.

    That's not a good excuse, i didn't use the search because a lot of those posts are from years ago and i like to get feed back from people who weren't on the forum when the old posts where posted, plus it is a pain to do on my phone. Thanks for doing the work for me lol, I didn't know Martin did a thread on this.
