    and this is whats sittin in my garage waitin to go under
    [​IMG]
    as far as specs go on the vehicle here they are:
    14bolt ff with 410 (open)
    ORD 4" reverse shacks and 2in blocks
    rear disc conversion
    front springs are TC 6in springs
    ORD greasable front shackles & bushings
    zero rate upfront d44 front 410s (open) now i have a D60 with a power-lok getting new seals at the moment waiting to go under her. but waitin till spring to do that.
    crate 350
    edelbrock intake & carb
    k&n airfilter
    flowtech headers
    350 tranny
    205 t-case

    my plans are by may to have a sky manufacturing cross-over sytem on it with hydro-assist. 488 gears, spool in the rear and detroit upfront. holley truck avenger carb. and ditch the rear blocks for 4in springs

    I'm glad you posted pics because I'll have the same amount of lift plus a 1" body so it gives me a great idea of how mine will stand. Is your front axle pushed forward? If so, how much (1" or 1.5")?

    yes the axle is moved forward. 1.5" its a chevy d60 with ford outers. it took me awhile to figure out what calipers i needed but they ended up being off a 70s 1-ton ford van.

    I really like the looks of that thing. Nice job on the fender trimming. There's only one thing I would change(like it matter's) paint the wheels black.
