Post 12v into an obs questions

Those of you that did a 12v swap into an obs, what engine mounts did you use. Any other parts I would need to get for the swap to work. I plan on using the dodge trans and transfer case. I will just modify or fabricate a new trans cross member. Anything I need to take into consideration. I have a feeling I will be doing one of these in the near future.

Good, IMHO. They were exactly what I would have done had I made my own.

Destroked kits are way better in quality and fit and finish.

I'm using Fordcummins as well for my 24V swap into my OBS. The mounts are beefy and look really good.

subscribing to this one for a friend.

Whats the latest way to do the wiring harness... do you need to keep the PCM, im guessing you do?

What is the best radiator to use or can the stock 7.3 one work?
