Hello Fellow Dodge truck owner, I have a 46! I too wanted a better drivetrain, more reliable. I'll post a couple pictures if you want. I used a Toyota 4x Rear end, stock pumpkin and axles, drum brakes, welded on a 3 link set up. Then I kept the original straight axle up front with a disc brake conversion kit. I don't know what you are doing with yours, but mines a hot rod truck, so it has a Z'd rear frame and Z'd up front, we boxed the stock frame all the way front to back and kept the cool X members. I'm running 57 De Soto 341 Hemi and it fits great. The stock frame is very useable. Now on another note, I also have a 39 Plymouth sedan, there I used a Camero front clip, 68-72 with a disc brakes kit, but I also have 2" shorter A-Arms because she's low. Rear end I used the Stock 10 bolt with drum. I have Dodge 360 engine that fits very well, headers tuck right in and steering is clean.
