Full size to mid size rear swap

Hi guys,

I was wondering if the rear end from a chevy 1500 would swap with the rear end in my s10. Im looking to get a lower ratio and my brother is offering me the rear end out of his old truck, can they be swapped no problem or do i need to modify it.

If by "swapped" you mean, does it bolt in, not even close. They are completely different trucks. Spring spacing is different, wheel bolt pattern is different, width is different.

7.5" in the S10 vs. 8.5" (or larger, depending) in the full size. Again, not even close.

Take the free axle, sell it, and use the money to buy the right gears.
