you should try putting this in the conversion area, there are more peolpe there that may be willing to help you with this one. you may want to go ahead and box the frame to start with, seeing as how it looks to be a 1/2 ton. I dont see why it wouldnt fit, however if it wont, just get a really big hammer then it will go in with no problems. the frame rails on my truck is are really close together, only like 34", and i've got lots of room. good luck.

the mods took the day off its friday......

But to answer your question yes it will fit although I cant see the badges but it looks like a 2 wheel drive 1/2 ton. So as stated I would start by boxing the frame and then I would worry about the suspension after. These cummins are heavy!

Then I would throw a d60 under the front and coil it....sorry tangent.

thats a clean truck, orig. or resto? 12 valve will fit, get big block springs and box the frame up front.

for the trans you need to find a p30 bread truck with the 4bt. behind that 4bt is all the hardware to bolt up a turbo400, including the t400. as for twist. don't go power crazy and for rear axle, corporation 14 bolt or dana 70hd. Good luck!!!

Somebody Got Da Fever!!!!

A 12v is around 1000lb.
Don't worry about that frame. This would be a sweet swap.
O and thanks 4 posting the burnout vid.:thumbsup
