    "A 1994 Grand Am SE, 350 small block Chevy,Turbo 350 auto transmission, NP-203 T-case, Corp. 14 bolt rear welded, Dana 44 front open, 5.13 gears, 36x12.50x15 Super Swampers, 4 inch suspension lift, 18 inches homemade lift, 1978 fullsize blazer frame, He mentions that the reason that it sits so high is that the motor and distributor are in the firewall and that’s as low as we could get it and hopefully some day we can get some 38.5 Boggers in the budget. This is the exact opposite of a show vehicle we built it to tackle the trails up in Wisconsin and that’s what it does. we had a blazer there at one time but weight issues can up and the motor just went out on the car so we put the two together."

    That isn't a rock crawler. It's a grandam body on a blazer frame with an 18 inch body lift. That thing is worthless offroad except for straight, flat mud runs.

    what a pos

    If the guy went through that much effort (whether stupid, or not) it's probably reasonable to assume that an engine swap took place, as well. If that is a 4x4 blazer frame (does seem like it could be) then the stock GM 10-bolt 7.625 rear axel isn't all that strong... Especially not for a 350cc V8 pushing some big meats. Swapping to a 3/4 axel is very easy. It's hard to tell from the pic whether he shortened it or not...

    I'm assuming its a GM frame as the front sports a 6 lug axle. They were most common with GM.

    Assuming that GM didn't want to use different lug patterns on one vehicle, I would guess that the 10 bolt that was originally under the back was not the 7 5/8" used in S-trucks, Astro vans and camaros, but was probably the 8 1/2" 10 bolt or even possibly the 8 7/8" 12-bolt. Remember, the front has 6 lugs, unlike ANY small 10-bolt.

    Doesn't matter now as it has an 8 lug back there and we can only speculate as to what it is.
