I would be interested, including where you got the tank, if you can use a stock sending unit. I have a 92 dakota and am looking into a fuel cell, however a stock tank like that would be a sweet option.if anyone is interested in more aspects of the swap i took lots of pics and can make a list of parts including their prices.
Rt leafs drop one inch over regular Dakotas. Given that your dak is a v6 I can't imagine the leaf springs having much difference in spring rate. However on the front you're gonna want to find some v8 springs. unless you acquire some hotchkis springs use oem springs and cut coils. V8 springs are side dependent, the driverside is 30 in/lb stiffer.i took a plasma cutter to the x brace/tire rack. also ive been looking for a new box and rear end stuff so ive been pretty much waiting on sandblasting the frame for that reason.
How much of a drop is the rt leaf?
Are the the spring rates similar?
i still wanna haul my quad every weekend and a trailer at some point.
