I thought that sounded like a rockin good deal. I understand moving the front perches back. Not sure if I would even have to flip the rear frame section. My plan with the dodge was to do a shorter then stock wheelbase anyway, say around 112". So I might be able to just move front and rear perches back 4" as it is in fact 108"
I'm still not sure I can get pass the fact that it would be a Dodge on a Chevy frame though. I still might use stock frame with a Dakota crossmember. Hmmmmm
Anything GM on a Mopar will increase it's reliability and value 10-fold
