also what are your thoughts about sticking a chev 350 engine into a 1981 dodge ram truck? what would be a good transmission and rear axe assembly? By the way, the truck will be driven like a police car with the addition of getting hardware from the store and taking junk to the dump and sunday drives around town and on the highway.

the headlights& grill may work... be sure to measure and line up the connections.It would be time consuming but it can be done as long as all the gaskets and holes and bolts are right. I would use same type tranny that works with the 350 but again everything has to line up just right and secure!

Well, based on my experience as truck owner, there are several replacement parts being distributed to other models or even other brands of cars that may not fit on others. Dodge ram parts are very much complicated compare to other car makes but to make sure if the certain part will fit your ram, you can go to the trusted auto shop or dealer near your place and ask more info. Parts of your dodge truck sometimes may vary on the year model.
