    OK fellas, I don't want to step on steven's toes or pull any business away from him, but I thought if someone was close to Autofab, then they might get us a prototype frame brace hook-up. I know that ORD is researching one, but I'd like one as quick as I could get it.

    Here is my correspondence with John Emke of Autofab. THey do a lot of cool stuff for fords.



    Clifford, Sounds good to me , keep in touch ok? John.

    This is where you guys come in. ;)

    I do however have a probable way of getting somebody around you there to "donate" their truck, for the prototype of the frame brace. I'll do some checking and if you're interested, I'll have them hook up with you to get it deisgned.

    Thanks for the timely reply,

    Cliff Mitchell
