Default 2000 Blazer build w some build questions...

I have been lurking and searching for a few weeks and it is now time for my first post and some questions. I was lucky enough to get a nice blazer off wolfpack that used to post on here. I'm not sure on all the work that he had done but here is everything he had listed in his sig.

2000 Blazer 4d LS 4x4 - 265/70/15 General Grabber AT2s
Hunter Brush Guard - Surco Roof Rack with IPF 868s
2" Shackle + Tbar - 2" BL - ZR2 Front and Rear Axles
DR44G H/O Alternator - FM44 + High-flow Cat

He did a zr2 swap in the rear. But not the front. So here is my big first question. And yes i did search for like two weeks and no i could not find the exact answer or write up on doing the front. From what i have read i believe the swap should be straight forward. Now if its not can some explain what i will need to make it a success. I want to use the exsisting parts from my front end already. Is that even possible. Please ask questions if you don't understand what im talking about. I am not a mechanic.

The front end is all the info i need. For now . So on with the rest of the things i have done. I painted the the grille black, repainted the wheels black, painted the brush gaurd black, painted the side panels on the door or what ever you want to call them black. In the process of painting the front chrome on the bumper. I used duplicolor bed liner i kind of liked the more rugged look with the texture

Also i am replacing the ball joints, tie rods, shocks, and radiator.
It has a little hesitation when cruising on the highway like im losing power im thinking thats maybe throttle body(going to clean) or distributor?

I already have some pics that i will put up when i get home. i will not let . Also i will post pics of the progress with the install of the zr2 front end so anyone else can see how it goes in. Questions and comments are appreciated.

WAT!

How dare he sell his truck without telling us!

I was under the impression that he already swapped in the ZR2 front diff. Hence the "ZR2 front axle" in his sig. Might want to double check with him before you dig in and swap it.

I got all the parts sittin in the garage. Im 100% sure he did not swap the front. I talked to him a few times about it when i was in the process of buying it. He was real nice guy gave me a good deal on the blazer.

Thanks! I appreciate the comments! getting some crickets in here. maybe some more pics will liven things up a bit.
Ok so most of these are random pics i have been taking along the way. It doesnt look like much but i have been making progress. I have replaced all the ball joints and control arm bushings. Put together inner and outter tie rods. Got my rotors spun down to make them even. Painted my Fith tire. Painted thr front bumber. In the middle of dropping the front axle out. Been doing all the work in my shop(muddy backyard we have gotten some rain) so it has been a little difficult to get the front axle to drop out. Hopefully get my roommate out there with me in the next day or so to get it completely out and the ZR2 one put in. Then i will start reinstalling the control arms and putting in the new shocks. and finishing up with a new radiator. enough talk here some crappy pics enjoy!!!
