well you'd wanna swap motor and tranny. then the diffs cause the dana 28 and 7.5 rear end are junk. youd have to make new motor mounts, tranny mounts and driveshafts. and then it depends if you wanna go efi or carb'd.........

that does make it easyer. but if you got all the stuff i hear to swap the motor in (carbed one) you can do it in a weekend. but then you need to do all the other crap[cheers]

its not hard even 5.8L W and my first 84 was 302/5L with c5/c4 with stock diffs with 3.73 limited slip (over shimmed) rear and open front with 3.5" suspension and 3" body on 35" mud's and ground hogs(over the years) and as for brakeing it was always the front axles of the dana 28 usualy from turning to sharp or hammer down going for broke!!!
you will need to get motor mounts for sure and i cant remember if your b-2 is auto but if you are you will need and bellhousing off a small block c4 and torque converter to use the exsisting c5 and t-case and drive shafts (can be used)tranny mounting hard ware but if your going standard that different crossmember and tranny and t-case drive shafts ect..
