You will have to cut the stock flange a lot. Mine has been reflanged with GM pattern Ford 9" style ends.
I tried mocking them up and noticed how much I have to cut the stock flange... thank you sir for the picture!! I guess tomorrow after work I'll get to cutting the top of the flange off :oops:

I didn't think the amount of doors constituted if a Blazer was 2wd or 4wd..🤔
it doesn't but it can constitute which brake calipers are installed. I've stood in the junkyard with one next to the other and compared and seen the difference.

The calipers themselves are the same between the 2wd and 4wd 98-04 Blazers, they just get swapped side to side because of the bracket differences. The only differences between 2 door and 4 door are the parking brake cable lengths.
