Help me out

My 88 2.9L is a junked up pile, but I love it. I need to basically get the entire thing redone. If you have any ideas on what kinds of the listed components I need, tell me.

I Need:

New Suspension

New Exhaust System

New Catalytic Converter

New Differentials (both most likely)

That's about I've found out so far. I'm going to get my exhaust after I fix my steering next week. If you know of anyone that has a good system for a 1988 2.9L XLT, tell me asap.

Not really looking for anything stock, but I do have a pretty tight budget at the moment. And with my exhaust; anything is really good, but not too loud.

Right now I'm just tryin to shop around and see my options.

I think that since you want to replace the whole truck you should either get a newer truck or SAS it. That would cover suspension and new differentials. Then do the v8 swap.
