Rear End For '87 K5 Blazer

A not-so-internet-savvy friend asked me for some help and I am hoping someone here may be of some assistance:

He is looking for a used 3.42 positraction rear end for an '87 Chevy K5 Blazer 4X4. Doesn't want to spend $$ to re-build with new parts. Any ideas on where he might find one? (he's already checking local salvage yards...I'm thinking more of an internet-source that deals in used parts.


(hope I got this in the appropriate forum :cautious: )
I have a complete drum to drum rearend with 3.42 but I am in Chicago.
I do not believe they came with positraction though.
