well i will keep the v8 and r380 in the mix and just beef up the axles with 24 spline shafts and a disc break kit. right now im chugging forward on the foundation i.e. power train , chassis and such so im not quite at the cross roads that i thought.

does any one make coil chassis for series anymore? thats my biggest concern i really dont want to modify a chassis.
if they do make them i will probally go that route, if not series upgraded axles it is.

No personal experience, but I think you want a designa chassis

Maybe Mike from ECR will chime in, as he built several trucks on the Designa Chasis.

200tdi's are expensive, that is for sure.

I know Im on the wrong coast, but Im about a week away from scrapping a RRC frame. If you want the coil brackets, V-8 mounts, and A Frame cross member, you can have them.
