I dont think dana 44s will survive. What size tire are you considering? Swapping in a 5.3 will likely require more body lift and the 4l80 may require transmission tunnel work. What engine do you currently have? Could a 3.4 swap or a supercharger be a suitable alternative?

It has the 2.7. that's comin up on 270,000 miles w was thinking maybe 35s or 36s I won't be beating on it to hard and the reason I want the ls swap I can get a lot of parts cheap I can get motor trans and harness for $1000 what size axles would u recommend? Build Dana 44? Dana 60s?

depends on the wheelin that you plan on doing. Rocks will require stronger running gear but built 44's with a 35 in tire should do ok as long as you are not hammering on them too much
