  1. Why not use Dakota it is right width, right bolt pattern, all MOPAR ? I used whole frame front to rear, available with several engines.
  2. Yes I do have another truck its a 1949 1 1/2 ton wrecker bright yellow also restored..
  3. Gary Those wheels are stock Dakota ,I stripped them and then powdercoated dark shiny gray.
  4. check Joes Springs on E-Bay. I've had luck there. Good luck. Bill
  5. Hi , You can make anything fit ,but I have done this and used a Dakota It has correct tread width its all Mopar has a variety of engine , disc brakes A/C you asked and this what I recommend. Click on my name you will see pictures.S-10 is too narrow, you would have to have special wheels made . With older Dakota you would have many choices.
  6. Gaskets or shims are NOT going to change fuel pressure!!!! The spring inside of pump will change pressure, but it is not adjustable.
  7. Paint it , rusty looks lazy & cheap. you asked I answered..
  8. I have done the Dakota complete frame front to rear, works fine. Right width, right wheel bolt circlr, and best of all its all MOPAR and easy to find parts for.
  9. Im looking for springs for 49 bif door latch to cure drooping outside handle
  10. Hi there. If you want my opinion I would do the Dakota frame swap if I were you, I have done it and think it was the right thing to do , you have right wheel width , disc brakes , several engine choices, fuel injection, A/C, P/S. I have pictures on this site in several places.Bought donor from insurance co. as a total, it all went together very easy if you have fabrication skills.You will have to shorten frame , just remember measure twice & cut once. Good luck. Use Dakota firewall & floor moving it back 3 inches is a big help.
