    this is for a friend who thinks it could be done,on a shortbed fullsize chevy,I think it would be to wide and alot of fab work to make it look alright let alone safe,it would look like crap,although a 350v8,dana 44 fronted and 14 bolt rear would look wicked under a toy! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    It would be easier to swap the stuff in than swap bodies. Not to mention it would look better.

    To bad the 2500 never came with a Dana 44, but a K-20 did.

    Both GM and Dodge use 2500 to label their newer 3/4 trucks. GM started in 88 when the went to IFS(hence no D44) and Dodge started in 93 I belive. 87 and older GM 3/4 ton trucks were called K20, for the 4 wheel drive 3/4 ton trucks.
