    I got the perches and spring mounts cut off, ready to reweld in right spot, noticed the shock mount will be half on the pumpkin and half off if I spaced it like the facory did on the 12 bolt. What did you guys do as for mounts, just move them out a little?

    You should of kept looking, cause I didnt have to modify anything. I bolted my 14 boltFF right in place of the 12 I took out. Actually the only thing I had to modify is the E brake cable attachments. Otherwise, it was a bolt in job.

    Well its not the end of the world to have to move this and reweld, but I guess to some its more work than they want to tackle. I just had nothing in the axles, and everything to remove and reweld, so looking for another one was not an option. thanks for your help.
