Adapters for what ??? If ur putting the dmax/Allison in the blazer you need motor mounts. Build some or search online for some premade ones. Have you thought about what transfer case ? Wiring? Etc this is an extensive swap

hmmm... 78 probably has the p-side drop, whereas the dmax setup is a driver side t-case output....

I would get both trucks drunk, light some candles, and put Barry White on the CD player. They should just combine on their own.

Oh now what adapter you need makes much more sense. Wal mart sells the dmax conversion, on isle 16. Make sure you get version 2.0, much better!

youd better brace and box the shit outta the frame. that duramax will twist that thing like a pretzel.

I would seriously consider a 12 valve and part out the chevy/isuzu

No need for metric tools and you would never need a code reader.
The wiring would take minutes not days. There's at least 20 other reasons why the cummins makes more sense...

You guys need to lighten up a little.

Yeah, Seriously, I can help.

Drop both vehicles off at my house, along with a deposit of $30,000, and I'll "adapt" that shit for you.

Given your question, I'd say that is the only way you are going to get it done.

If it was me, I'd rather have the Blazer body on the DMax frame. Of course straight axle the front and shorten the frame. Just an idea.

now here's an idea. i'd run this with the d-max front clip, then massage the body onto the back of it. the d-max frame is ten times better than the blazer frame, i'm thinking your gonna have issues just holding the weight and torque of the dirtymax on a whimpy 1/2 ton frame.
