    What I find the most annoying now is that there are a lot of companies that list every single thing in stock and it's only after you order that they get back to you saying it's not available. Even things that are shipped directly from those companies and not dropped shipped from the manufacturer.

    That link is taking you to ForABodiesOnly.com. You’d have to make an account/log in on their forum to be able to contact that seller.

    Thats great Sam, have you made a list of other parts you may need? You can see folks will help you a lot to find them.

    I think there will be several small parts you need many may have laying around.

    I have considered installing a 3.5L engine/transmission from a Charger/300, but the thought perished (went poof) after looking at the big block(s) I currently have sitting under my work bench...

    It can be done – but it will require a lot of fabrication. If considering this, you will need to either find an engine/transmission from a rear wheel drive vehicle, or an engine that will bolt onto a transmission for a rear wheel drive vehicle (most 4*4 transmissions will be too much work).
