My experience with columns is they are easy.

I'd say bypass the VATS. Leave the column with the current key in it. Or change column and vats module.

Are all the studs in the floorpan for the seats and console? I would think you'd be missing a couple for the shifter etc.

Good question. the studs for the console can be harvested from the donor car that the seats and/or console are obtained from. I'm not too sure about the inner seat studs though.

Should probably ask Twister97. He did a seat swap already.

I will ask Twister97 about the inner studs. The great thing is that I literally will have an entire car right there, so anything missing, I can forage.

A Getrag would be a bad choice. Dodge used Getrag for years, we won't even take them in as cores at work, paper weights maybe
Anywho;.
