IMO, use the whole Ford truck and install a 12valve with that 5-speed. Also use the Dana 80. Maybe the nice long rear leafs too.
There might be enough room on the Dodge D60 to land leaf spring perches. (There's the easy 3rdgen big-brake upgrade for these.) If not, get a D60 front from a 85-97 F350.
Not a fan of the 2ndgen frames. I've wrecked out 3 of them, and all had frame rust problems because they're made from so many pieces of thin steel.
