    From what year to what year is the preferred 4x4 S-10 rear end, for a 48 Fleetmaster.?

    Any non-disc one is fine.

    Find one with the ratio you want. That's most important.

    The 1st generation "square" ones from 82-93. Also can use the rear end from the 4x4 S-10 Blazer. The '94 to '04 2nd generation should also be the same width, except for the ZR2 version. They had factory wheel flares and I have to assume the rear ends were wider than a regular 4 x4. You would want to avoid that one.

    That's why I mentioned discs.

    If memory serves, ZR-2 package S10s has discs, and the axle is wider.

    Thanks, didn't know that. Other GM brands may have discs but not be as wide? I recall seeing Oldsmobile Bravada with 4 wheel discs but don't think it was as wide as a ZR2.

    FWIW, I put mine under a '54 Chevy. The '48 Fleetmaster OP asks about should be similar?
