After lots of thinking I ordered the following:
AA dodge v8 motor mounts ?!!!
1997 Dodge 1500 5.2l 98k on the way
I have the wiring harness and ECM from a 97 5sp. - No SKIM according to dealer. Will be doing the wiring myself with an electrician buddy of mine.
I'll be getting a bellhousing from a 3.9l dodge to mate the engine to my AX-15.
Well I'm probably forgetting some stuff but I'll be updating as I go.
Currently the new frame is bare, just sitting on jack stands. I went through and did axle seals/bearings on the 8.8 yesterday along with new parking brake shoes and discs. So it should be about ready to go in. Started cutting off 4.0l mounts, need more cutting wheels! Lots of work ahead but it is gonna be an exciting build, for me anyways- hope you like it too ha. Ill try to take as many pictures as I can. Thanks for reading.
Heres one of the 8.8 before brackets and paint. Ill have to take a pic of it now, looks real nice- painted with Chassis Saver.
