anything will fit if you make it fit. Measure the wheel base too see if there similar and start fabbin. But why would you want too?????

Why not take an AWD Safari/Astro.....I mean the layout's already there.....just swap out the t-case for a selectable one n stuff and you'll save yourself a lot of work

different wheel base . just make your own front hangers , tak weld it in then pull the front sub frame and finish welding without overhead

There was one in Four Wheeler, 4Wheel and Off Road (Top truck challange?) that was a mix of Astro/Blazer on 40's. Seemed to work really well.

It's about two years now and yet this thread has not yet been answered and guess the issue with your car is not yet resolved(just presuming). Forgive me for putting this threads up but just want to share the experience i had months long from now. In the future, this might served a useful guide to GMC owners owner there. So, Im an owner of 1995 GMC Safari with 150,000 miles. This vehicle posseses a very nice interior with tv/vcr and power rear seat that lays down into a bed, 2 captains seats and then the front seats. Done the replacement on A/C compressor about three months ago and has new remanufactured Coleman Taylor Transmission with maybe 4000 miles since install. The transmission is still under warranty 3year 100000 mile warranty.Send the details to me for i might capable of doing the job. Please call 270-752-0405. That's my number or you can PM me directly just in case you have some GMC repair questions (http://www.automd.com/answers/search/gmc_m36/) to ask...Thanks!:party0010:
