In the early stages of a unusual swap. I have an early (1977) FWD GMC Motor home I'm going to install a 2007 Duramax with 6 speed Allison. It will be mounted in the rear and drive a 9.75" Ford IRS pumpkin up front. Been collecting parts and have new frame rails for the build coming next week. A little crazy I know but a fun project.

Given the weight bias you will end up with, you might consider an Air-Locker for that diff for when things get slippery. Are you going to stick with the Toronado-derived front suspension, or swap in a GM 3500 4-WD front clip? Are you flipping the ring gear on the Ford diff or flipping the whole unit? So many questions!
