Dude, your grammar is fucking horrible, I can barely figure out what you're trying to say. You'll do us all a favour by paying more attention in English class.

Anyways, I spun 35's with 3.08's, also on an old Dodge pickup. Just put it in 4Lo when you wheel it, and leave it in first. I ripped it up everywhere, I did it pedal to the metal and my diffs were fine with that too. It did have a lightly modded V8, and I would consider doing a small block swap if I were in your shoes since you say it's not running yet anyways. All you should really need is motor mounts, and the motor of course. Everything else (except exhaust) would bolt up or be a simple matter of applying some ingenuity to make it work. 318's can be had for peanuts. Try and get a later 80's mill for the swirl port heads. I had an FBO ignition system, Comp XE256 cam, headers, electric fan, and a 4bbl intake with a Holley 600. I also recurved the distributor. Great combo for a stock 318 in decent shape.

yeah sorry about my grammer must be my learning disability but anyways yeah i have a 360 i could put in but i wanted something that wouldnt be to expenive to wheel because i have a 78 powerwagon on 44s witha a 440 and its pretty hard on the fuel for sure so i might just stay with my 33s

44's are a ridiculously heavy tire, and a 440 is going to be bad on gas no matter what. You could actually wind up saving gas, you'll definetely be pedal to the metal a lot more with the 6 than with an 8. Especially with shitty gears, a V8 will work a lot more efficiently with 35's. And let's be honest, even 35's are barely enough to wheel a fullsize pickup.
