The Spirit is a Front wheel drive, and all of the mounts, accessories,
exhaust and headers reflect the fact it is mounted sideways and on top
of the tranny. It would be easier to grab the whole mess, engine,
tranny, and front suspension and convert it to a front wheel drive
truck. It is do-able but your fabrication skills better be up there
with Mike's...
