    S-10 Chassis for B1B body install

    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.

    Fuel pump question

    Gaskets or shims are NOT going to change fuel pressure!!!! The spring inside of pump will change pressure, but it is not adjustable.

    1950 dodge b2c suspension upgrades

    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.

    Very nice, looks like you did it right. I dont think you will ever make a cruiser out of it . I have a 49 1 1/2 ton B1F 128 with a 230 engine that has head cut .080 it will run 55 MPH but doesnt like it, still fun though!!!!!
