I doubt any S-10 rear will hold up to 400 horsies for very long.

I did a '52 Suburban on a 4x4 S10 chassis, and my daily driver is a V8 S10 4x4. It wound up being a lot more work than I expected. Let me know if I can help you out any further.

hey rusty,

funny that you are talking about putting a willys body onto a s10 frame..... found an add in the street rod builder magazine that poked my interest. takiong a totaled s10 to a ground pounding willys. tried their web site... no luck not working. <a href="" target="_blank"></a>
here is their Phone # if you need it(or would like it) 440-392-9937 . if you get through(like it is a legit business)tell them their website ain't working. as for the 400 HP, i have to agree with Stinking. 300hp no problem, 400, you would be looking at a minimum Chevy 8.5 instead of the puny 7.5 it comes with. then again i have heard that you can pull the rear from a late model s10(suposed to be a 8.5) as long as it had the 4.3 v6. somewhere in the later 90's works best. hey might get lucky and find one with discs.

later, JS
