    I just said 273 because I would like a small V8 in the truck. 318 would be fine also, as it is the engine that cost Chrysler the least money on warranty repairs of all the motors Chrysler ever produced. I would want the V8 SOUND more than anything and maybe a little warm-over from hot rod parts. I wouldn't even care if it wasn't that fast, I just like the crisp, healthy sound of a well-built and well-tuned V8, one that just hums when you cruise and makes you smile.

    That's not fair, you know some inside info Lol. This weekend I may have scored a 318 2wd Dakota, I have to check it out yet.

    Right on. So the Dakota frame is a two piece frame with a weld joint that mates the front and back halves under the cab. If you're doing a frame swap the problem with the back half is the wheel arches go up and force you to raise the bed floor to where you have a really shallow bed. So what you could do is mate the front half of the Dakota frame to the back half of the old frame and then swap the rearend. If I was going to pull my cab I probably would have gone that route.
