This is badass. I bet it's a joy to zip around in when you have traction

What was your final drop numbers, I think I recall seeing you mention 2" front and 3" rear on your original build thread, is that correct? I am working on my Dakota and have a 1/2 drop on it now considering going a bit lower and really like the way yours sits.

PS I agree about the **** at Chrysler that decided to use foam in the cab corners, cancer starter for sure.

Correct, 2" springs and 3" western drop hanger in rear.

Good to know, does you front end hit bump stops a lot with the 2" drop, what bump stops did you use? 1" 2" ????

Grats on the front page highlight Bruce! It's about time we got some recognition for the Hemi Dakotas!

Thanks again for the help/info you gave me on my swap. If it weren't for you, I never would have put in that 6.1 timing chain tensioner.

Thanks for the heads up. I probably would have missed it otherwise. More than happy to help you out with your swap.

Thanks!
Oh, it took about a year including all the body work, paint and engine swap.
