thats cause their 15" rims. and i have the frame. i have a complete truck less the drivetrain but its obd1 and the harness is cut so i either need a new harness or i swap everything, and i mean everything

and as for seats, i'm still deciding, but i think i'm going to use my escort seats i have on the supercab brackets

Well, if you were just looking for something to do, looks like you definitely got something to do now. Good luck with the swap.
