Old to New s-10/Blazer

    I've been to Western's quickmatch and it won't let me search for a 1993 S-10.

    My question is: Will a western plow on a 1993 S-10 (It's in the old pics thread) go onto a 1997 Blazer with no modifications. I'm pretty sure the chassis didn't change. I figured I'd ask here first in case somebdy has done it already.

    Thanks

    The '93 and older mount isn't the same as the '94-up due to the bumper change when they changed the body style, the frame horns are different.

    The S-10 Blazer didnt change until 1995, The 94 S-10 Blazer is still a first generation.
    The S-10 pickup changed in 1994 to the new body style.

    I dont know how it hooks up, but the ZR2 frame is 2 inches wider then a standard S10.

    All the front end parts are all inter-changeable except the center link, it's two inches wider to make up for the frame.

    if you look up the specs you'll see the difference in the track.
    Also look up part numbers for control arms, ball joints, tie rods inner and outter, idler arm, pitman arm, they are all the same.

    I have heard from so many people that have tried swapping them to get the lift of a ZR2 on a normal S-10, but the frame is wider and the control arms mount in different locations.

    So, in theory, all you would have to do to mount he plow is weld in the 2 inches of material???

    Hopefullyyy
