Just wanted to say, Great Read! I'm wanting to do a small truck TDI swap of some kind and I've been thinking Dodge Dakota just because I'm already big into the Dodge family.
Better check with NW fab as they dont offer the same dodge kit I have anymore. There are some work arounds to this though and the Dakota platform is great for this type of swap IMHO.

slight update. Time for a new starter after 6 years. still worked fine but the solenoid trigger wire connector had become loose inside from all the vibration and would occasionally no start. I can always bump start it or walk out and reach into the passenger wheel well and wiggle the terminal to start it but it gave me an excuse to see if a bigger 9004-12 starter would fit. Its just under a 1/4inch longer and I had to grind my motor mount a bit but works great. Spins it over very fast.
