have him check into a Chevy Colorado pick-up as a donor for this. They did/do make them with 4, 5, 6, and V8 engines 2WD/4WD. Disc brakes, rack&pinion steering, IFS, torsion bars and sway bars for any engine/vehicle weight. Whole lot easier than starting from scratch and the parts will be available for years to come.
The Colorado is laid-out a lot better than an S-10, cleaner, easier to use and newer.
Good luck with it, post some pics.
