You would be better off to put a V8 in the S10 and hotrod that...

What you might consider is the small GM four wheel drive units, the wideth of the rearend and 59 inches, the same as my 37 buick, 37 ponitac coupe, and 56 chevy rear-end. and they might have a short enough whell base. but might be tough getting everything low enough to the ground.

good luck

The two wheel drive rearends are an inch or two smaller than the four wheel drive rears. The only problems with 4x4 frames, other than them being fourwheel drive, is that the whole front-frame is slightly different than the two wheel drive S-10.

That's too bad.... there are several cheap 4x4 S10s in my area, but no 2wd. No big deal, I'm in no hurry. I'll hold off on building a rat rod until I have the tools and know-how to fabricate a frame. In the meantime, a v8 S10 sounds like a good time

Here's the "end all" of building a T bucket. Click on "Rolling Chassis Build-up" for details of the frame.

Those S-10 frames are butt-ugly on a fenderless rod, best suited to fatfenders.
