    Well Welcome to the forum!:)

    If you switch everything over you should not have a problem, I don't believe you'd need to switch steering linkages.

    So are you looking for a 4/6 drop?

    This is a picture of mine with a 2/4 drop with the hanger flip in rear.
    Beauduke has this set up as well and so does dodgedrew.

    Let us know if you need anything.

    Together we can do a whole lot with these Mopars.

    I've been rolling around like that for a year, and havent had any issues, just use locktight, and check your bolts every now and then.
