Question 74 Blazer Rear End Questions

Hello Everyone I'm Swoo. Also very new here.

I'm a '74 Blazer student looking to learn what I can about the Truck I'm about to buy...and I'd like to ask alot of questions to learn these things.
I'm looking at buying a '74 K5 Blazer and it has a 14 Bolt Ford rear end with the 8 or 9 lug wheels.
It has the 3 SPD Trans and I'm not sure which Transfer Case but It might be a 205.

I'm looking to run with 33"tires and I'd like to know the best set up to put back into it make it a GM again.
Is the GM 12 bolt rear end set up with Positraction and a 4SPD Trans with a 205 Transfer case the right stuff? I'd love to learn the in's and out's of it.
If you know please let me know.

Your best bet would be to buy a parts truck with all the stuff you need. The stock axles for your Blazer has 6 lugs. Anything from 73 to about 86 is the same, I believe.
