Will a later frame (late 80s) 2-wheel drive (D-100, D150?) -- work to swap my driveline to? Strong enough? Thanks -- appreciate any response. All best, -- ken

Yours is a LWB frame I bet. Any 72-93 LWB frame should work, W series would be best, D series would require some front end work to get your front leafs attached.

thanks Bucky -- my WB is 131" so glad to hear other than w200 frames can work -- I may be able to locate a D frame pre-93 -- what kind of mods were you thinking of on the front end? my pw has a dana 70 & frame plow mounts attached. Would like to use those somehow. tx again,

--- ken

"D" series trucks have A frame control arms & coil spring suspension of front. "W" series have leaf springs.

What kind of shape is your front suspension? If its rusted up as bad as the frame then you may want to start with a W200 donor.

tx Bucky -- hhmmm ... A's & coils eh? mine are indeed leaf springs ... The front end isn't nearly as bad as the back of the frame on my '74 w200, but a D frame could be more trouble than worth to swap driveline etc to it?

Then the prob. is how to locate a good w200 donor. Or I could get into welding the back of the D frame to the front of my w200 frame. Any templets available for this -- like the kind made by Brothers Trucks for Chev. frame shortening? appreciate your advice. thanks again,

- ken
