Anyone seen a true 3.9 5 speed dakota daily swapped with an ls (03 Chevy 1500 5.3) motor? It all bolts up but i cant seem to find anyone who decided to use a v6 with the stock nv3500 and put a 5.3 to it from my reaseach, seen jeeps with 5.3 nv3500 but no Dakota. Anyone i call doesnt even know where to start pointing when it comes to wireing it as a daily and wireing it to work as a daily is where the hardest issue lyes. Am i the first to picture a true daily Dakota 5.3 with nv3500? From the reachsearch ive been able to collect over the past months since the motor was built i cant find anything solid

The NV3500 doesn't bolt up to a LS1; you'd need the NV3550 and a LS1 bellhousing, or, as Johnny Cash says, "an ay-dapter kit".
