Re: gotta love that (L) on that shifter knob
Yeah, I always thought they had a certain look to them. Saw one once where a guy put a 3" body lift on it and had 32x11.5R15's that were kinda sucked in under the body. Probably woulda rubbed like hell offroad, but man, it looked cool.[img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
Don't put it on another frame, just bolt on some bigger axles. Some Toyota axles would probably work great, about the right width. Cut off the IFS, mount some spring brackets, and move the spring perches on the axles. Custom leaf spring packs or whatever, and whalla, solid axle Ram 50. I know it's been done. Much simpler than a frame swap.
