Looks tasty.

I wanna do mine as a two wheel drive too, so I'll need something for the front suspension. I thought about trying to get ahold of a 73-87 Chevy/GMC van, but my luck I'd get one that's also 4x4.

Eric I've build a few of those, they have a Solid I beam front suspension with leaf springs, good if you want to convert it to 4WD but not if you want 2WD and the rear differencial if a quick change unit.
