I was looking through my Jegs catalog, and saw this listing for a Crane Cams Ford/Dodge Pushrod Guideplate Kit. It sells for $89.99 and has these requirements:
92-02 Dodge Magnum V8 318-360
Must Use 270-11746-16 rockers and 5/16'' diameter pushrods (270-36621-16, $96.99).

The rockers are regular Chevy/F**d 1.6 ratio rollers. I also found the part # 270-44746-16 rockers, which are F**d 1.7 ratio pedestal mount for $195.99. I don't know enough about Dodge motors to know if these interchange. If not, Chevy 1.7 rollers can be had for $222 here (this was the result of a short Google search, you could probably find them for less).

The totals are as follow:
Guideplate kit: 90.00
Pushrods: 97.00
Rockers: 196.00 or 222.00
Total: 382.00 or 409.00

Since the Crower 1.7 rockers are $667.34 at Truck Performance.com, would this be a viable alternative? If not, where is the best place to buy 1.7 ratio rockers? Jegs only lists Harland Sharp 1.6 rockers for the Magnum V8.

Check these sites for rockers.

A lot of people use Harland Sharps as well. Good choice if you do not plan on doing more to your motor and do not need the adjustability. The Mopar rockers are made by compcams I think. They come with guideplates and pushrods, but the teflon on the guideplates has been known to crack or deteriorate. If you are planning on a lot of 5500+ rpm use then you need to look at only the high rev kits for safety.

Al: You want some 1.7 RR's? Contact [email protected]. I got mine for $275, Harland Sharp. You wont regret it. He is superb to work with.
Thanks! That is a great deal. I'll email him.

BTW, it's not Al, the login creation wouldn't let me use any name I put in, so I settled on the default response "This name is already in use", which was cut & pasted and then shortened automatically. :)
