If you notice both shock mounts on the front of the axle its probably 67-72. Different spring perch width too.

in my 10 bolt either a pinon bearing or wheel bearing is out and i wanted to upgrade to the stronger axel so i can run 38's without worries, will any 12 bolts fit my 86 k5 blazer that will be a straight bolt up?

yes i second that 14 bolt!12 bolt isnt much stronger than a 10 bolt 38's and 12 bolts don't mix also you should be able to find a 14bolt for no more than 200.00 or so check the axles for sale where in cali do you live?:)

does the 3/4 ton come with stock 4.56 gears or is that only the 1 ton and would the front out of a 3/4 ton be a straight bolt up as well, what years for these axels?

I just saw a 14 bolt on the FS board for $150 w/ 4.10. I think I saw a set of 8 lug outers for your 44 also.

A 12 bolt is'nt worth the bother. I think your 10 b has the same 30 spline shafts. All you would gain is a little bigger ring gear.

IMO if you are'nt giong to do a real upgrade, yust rebuild what you have.

12 bolts around here go for around $500. You might be able to find a good deal on a whole set of 3/4 ton axles for less than that. You can get cheapo 15" 8 holes rims for around $40ish or so.
