    Rear Axle Swap?

    attempted this on the early models? I'm tired of the sub-par rear brakes and lack of parking brake, and having a better highway gearing would be cool. It's no race car, so slow starts aren't really an issue

    I put a Dodge Dakota one in a `56 a while back. Move spring perches and that's about it.

    P.S. welcome back we missed you.
