I'd say go with the s10 chassis and ford 8.8 rear from an explorer...... Or at least graft the s10 front end into your frame and beef up your frame.

I'm bit partial to the s10 chassis / 8.8 rear combo as thats what I'm using for my v8 convertible bug







Of course the "cheap or free" s10 chassis starts to add up as you replace worn out parts, make upgrades etc....

My chassis had about 200k on it so I replaced pretty much everything, plus upgraded the sway bars, put 2" drop spindles on etc.....











You can see TONS more pictures of what I did to our s10 chassis, and 8.8" rear end on my website at: v8beetleresource.com
