Also i have never seen a 4x4 v6 ram combo, unless it wasnt very popular???
Now i know if you get a dakota with the v6 and 4x4 you get the 44rh/re instead of the 42rh/re, (correct me if im wrong).
If you have a good converter from the 318 (neutral, non-weighted) buy a weighted flexplate for your 360, B&M makes them for LA or Magnum weight. I just picked up a 95 318 46rh with a nice aftermarket TC for $175, ordered the flexplate on Amazon for $83. Going into. 72 B300 Sportsman Royal Maxiwagon with the TAPC conversion kit.
