Default A fun swap

So there has been talk at out little shop here in vermont.


We are thinking of doing a v8 - Turbo D swap. lol

The body is my 1500

the donner is a 2500 96 ram lol

We want to swap the axles, suspechion, motor ect to the 1500... Need thoughts and opions if this will work. Our main worrie is the turbo D will trear the 1500 frame to peaces vs a 2500 frame....

thoughts? opions? stuff needed for the swap?


thanks

Box the frame and gusset all suspension attachment points at the frame. Don't forget the crossmembers need some stiffening too. Use the ones off of the 2500.

I don't know how complete the 2500 is but you need the computer, the harness, injectors, fuel delivery and lift pumps, fuel tank, etc...

Sounds like quite the swap. I'm thinkin' a 6.1L HEMI swap would be easier!!!

Have fun with the project!
