    Stephen, take a peek here, I told ya I'd get you pictures of it when it was done with the differences of the supercab frame. I wanted it flush with the bottom of the framerail, but the doubler adapter hits the cab reinforcment rail, so I'm going to do a 1.5" body lift to get it up in there. Hopefully by the end of next week I'll have crossmembers in place, & I'll take some pictures I can mail up to ya. By the way, you wouldn't happen to have came up with a shifter setup for the Fords yet, have you? Thanks.

    Matt

    Thanks.
    I was a total pain to drive when the wheelbase was 158". Down around 125"-130" now, I think it's just about perfect.

    Man that is pretty bad ass. I love things that are different. I'd go with bedsides and a prerunner style tire carrier. That thing is great. 3 t'cases? Insanity! I love it!

    heh, the 3 t-cases are easily possible, but I see no reason to do it.... I just said I could :-)
    torque converters overcome the need for ultra-low gears... but 4:1 is good..... 8:1 would be serious overkill for me
