Does anyone know if a 1979 & up K frame will fill in a 1977? Dodge changed the design to allow the oil pan to come off without removing the transmission in 1979 & up vans. I need to pull the motor on mine and the front end needs rebuilding anyway so I was thinking this would be a nice upgrade if it fits.

Nope, not a chance. The front suspension and K frames are completely different 71-78 and 79-up.


Windows- they're what make a van worth owning!
