I wouldn't trust the Dakota frame to hold up to a V-10. Have you compared the thickness of it to the 2500? It's pretty thin.

Which part(s) of the 2500 frame is/are rotted? Can you graft the front...

SAS = Solid Axle Swap

Basically, you cut off all the independent front suspension parts and custom fabricate mounts for a solid axle out of a different vehicle (Jeep Wagoneer, for example).

If you have an air compressor, you can have somebody sit inside the truck while you blow air around the windshield, doors, and other possible entry points. You'll hear when you find a leak.

I run 5W-30 in everything, including my Ford that calls for 5W-20. No problems so far, and I don't expect any.

Most of the kits on ebay are pretty much the same. The biggest difference will be whether you get blocks or add-a-leafs for the rear. The add-a-leafs seem to be more popular, though the blocks give a...

I actually paid about half that price on Amazon, but it's still pretty expensive if you only need it once. If you work on a lot of cars, it's a bargain.

Glad you got it worked out. :icon_beerchug:

If it's going to get REALLY cold, I would make sure all the coolant is drained out of it, too.

I wouldn't say it's dumb, but it probably won't sound that great (and I LIKE Flowmasters). It certainly won't sound like a V-8. You probably won't gain much, if any, horsepower either.

I worked on one years ago that looked like that. It wasn't that the oil was never changed. In fact, it was changed every 3000 miles since new (truck had 80k miles on it). The problem was that the...

You're looking at the torque converter. There should be a sheet metal cover there, but it's not critical. I would replace it, though, to keep dirt, mud, small animals, etc. out of there.

Are you positive the output on the "new" case is 32-spline? Mine was a V8 with an NV3500 and the TC output shaft was 27-spline.

If we're going to count shop equipment as tools, then I agree. My (4-post) lift is the best thing I ever bought. But my welder comes pretty close.
