Put the coilover assembly on to measure tire and wheel fitment.  Both front and rear wheels are the same.  18x11.  I don't believe I will go the wide up front. It kinda looks funny.

MOPAR FTMFW  ;)  i'm diggin' this build dood
i'd cut the trans tunnel & floor up to the frame rail and build a house/console. you could always take it out for service,  adjustments,  etc. i'd also go with a rack for steering.

easy for me to say looking back  -_-

Thanks guys, it has turned in to quite the project.  I think I may do something similar with the tranny tunnel.  My main concern there is the slave cylinder is in a pretty terrible spot.  As for steering, I would love to swap over to a rack but around here they are a little harder to come by.  Not to many parts cars to steel it from.  I am running in to the same problem you have in your write up.  The exhaust on the drivers side is becoming a problem.  I’m either going to have to go your route or try and swap sides with the magnum manifolds and run the drivers side over to the passenger side and run one larger pipe out the rear.

Finally got the car on all fours.  The rear coilovers are set about half way and the fronts are close to the bottom.  I thought that my lean in the rear would go away by replacing all of that stuff but it hasn't.  Anyone know what's going on here so I can fix it?  I pulled it out of the garage to get the rest of the the bay and wheel wells degreased and cleaned.  Makes it easier to finish the swap.

Here is what's left of the front end damage from when I got the car. A friend of mine has a frame table to try and get it straight as we can.  I will be putting wheel tubs in and caging the car.  At the same time I will make a tube front end to mount all of the stock hardware to.  I also scored a front bumper and air dam finally

regarding the lean, have you check if the rear subframe is tweaked?  Block the body of the car with the suspension hanging (remove the wheels) and measure the four mounting points from the ground.  With the front end damage you pictured, that's a pretty good hit. Another possibility is the bushings are wore out.  My two cents.
Does anybody offer Lay-away anymore?

On the slave cylinder, it looks like the connector has an o-ring seal and a spring pin holding in place.  There are AN fitting adapters that will allow you to take the bulky connector off and put in a 90 degree for clearance.  Summit has one that may work.  http://www.summitrac...CFUgWHwodUPAJiQ

Good luck in your search.

Alright back in to this car.  I'm fitting the motor and am ready to mount.  I have a few questions for you guys.  

I had read somewhere that our motors were mounted not directly in the center.  I'm trying to find what that measurement was so I can offset my drivetrain.  Anyone know what it is orginially?

- I'm hesitant to weld in the motor mounts and redo the crossmember until I can see how bad the front frame damage is.  Can anyone help me out here with some kind of measurement for the frame rails?  I attached some pics of the damage up close.  I was thinking about cutting the top of the rail out in the damaged areas and hammering it back close enough to weld in a new rail.  Unless someone has a parts car I can steel them from.

There are two structures that make up each of the frame rails.  An inner "horn" and the outer one. Not sure how I'd approach it, myself.

I got the frame straightened at a shop and it came out pretty good.  They said the front of the car was about and inch off to the passanger side.  Everything should be pretty straight now.

I received my headers last week from summit.  It looks like the drivers side is going to need some love to make it fit.

Now with a smaller dilemma.  Where the motor should be placed.  If I absolute center the motor the valve covers hits the brake booster.  The farther I move the motor to the passenger side It makes the shift not centered. I'm trying to find a happy medium here.

The motor and tranny are finally supporting themselves.  Everything is tacked in to make sure this is how I want it before I final weld it all.  As you can see from the steering arm and I am now going to be fighting with some room (With or without rack steering IntercooledFlatty) This project has been going so long I just want to get the damn thing on the road.  

IntercooledFlatty - Did you just fab a one piece driveline to the torque tube?

I've been hearing a lot about Fitech. I'll be interested to know how this works out.
Just curious what that setup ran (intake/injection system)?
