Pet peeve of mine... It's Willys. Not Willies.... Otherwise, put it on whatever chassis you want. S10 may be since it's IFS.

Have you thought about building your own frame from rectangular tubing? If you have the time, tools, and skills it is a good way to go as you can set it up for your suspension or spring spacing you want. It takes a little more time than swapping a body onto a chassis, but can give you a nice strong setup.
