I think it looks fine. I might check the bolts after a bit of use.

Looking for more progress!

Put the Dana 80 rear axle back on and rough aligned it. Also started cleaning up the Cummins engine, NV4500 trans and NP241HD transfer case. A ton of degreaser, towels and elbow grease.

Painted the engine and accessories. Dropped the engine in the frame and started to get the cab set so I can do the cab and bed body mounts. Hopefully the engine mounts don't need to move but feel I might have to push back 4” or so.

Took off the front clip from the old M715 frame and put it on the Dodge frame. Looks like I am going to have to move the engine back about 5-6" but this shouldn't be an issue. I plan on reusing the frame side of the engine mounts and just have my welder buddy make some custom engine side mounts. Next step........ move the cab over so I can start working on the front clip and cab mounts. Will probably have to trim about 1/2" of fender off the bottom so the Dodge spring towers fit. But will wait to do that when I put the mounts on.

Cut off the sheet metal top and removed the seats from the cab. Next... door removal, removing the rest of the convertible frame, and then moving the cab over for fitting on the new frame/cab mount mock up.

Leveled the Dodge frame with a laser + RV jack/car jack stands, cut the old body mounts off the Dodge frame and then moved the cab over. Next...... welding new body mounts for the cab/front clip.
