K1500 IFS differential

Has anyone tried the Hummer H2 cast iron diff on the front end of a K1500 in order to utilize a locker.

Just a quick note. Currently in contact with a Tech Rep at Chevy support to reaserch this matter.......will get back with more details. I've read way to many Forum posts where everyone says "Go SFA", that just tells me there are to many people that give up way to easy.

Interesting idea for sure. I'm interested in seeing where this goes.

IFS upgrade

After all this time and having to do some other prejects, I have decided to install a 9.25 IFS from a donar K3500 into my 1997 K1500 Z71. Picked up the 9.25 for $150 and have completed the dis-assemble. Will take the empty housing and fab any mounting modifications myself. Rebuild of 9.25 diff will have an Eaton E-Locker installed.
