S15 4x4 conversion

heres one i havn't herd yet

how hard would it be to convert a 87 GMC S15 (6 banger...i believe) 4x4 to a sb v8?

the reason i ask is recently i seen this truck sitting in these peoples back yard doing nothing but taking up space and i think i could probably get it if i wanted to, but me being me i'd want to put a sb in it and take it out in the woods

also you think i could take the axles out from under my xtra blazer i've been using as a parts truck and put underneath it? or would they be too long?

i dunno, any advice will help


thanx, J

Quite easy, all of the parts are readily available.
