My 2000 SBC Swapped Dodge Dakota

Postby BrianEsser » September 24th, 2012, 9:05 pm

Just a quick shot of my current project, it's a 2000 Dodge Dakota RC. Originally was a 3.9V6/5 Speed, now it's a 355/TH350 combo, at least for now. Eventually it will have an all forged 434 in it.

Haven't had much time to touch it this year as my shop keeps me busy. Currently it's on stands as I have the entire front suspension off and out getting powdercoated, and installing all new balljoints, Energy Suspension poly bushings, 3" lowering springs, and Bilsteins.

I built a dual fed TH350 with a 3,000 stall, the good clutches, hardened sprag, the typical upgrades.. The rear end is still the stock 8.25" 3.50 Chrysler rear (it's gonna go BOOM). I plan on replacing it with a beefed up 9.25 if it doesn't eat itself first.
