find a good deal on a ford 9" or like me a mopar and then have it cut down and new axles built. I have only 1300 in my mopar 8 3/4 and it is 38 1/2" wide my stock rearend out in garage, that I cant give away is 54" wide I sent my mopar rear to dutchman in portland or. and they narrowed it,built billet axles,installed drain and fill and put big ford ends on all for a little over $700

I believe a stock rear end in an S10 is like 49" Wide I have a 56" wide rearend in mine but my wheels offset most of it, they stick out a tad and I am planning on taking care of that this fall.
