    This would be like how Steve has them on the UAV and Esteban(Esteban86K5) has on his or anyone else who has done the swap.
    I'm looking at building one for Frank(BlazzinOR) and Jason(jekbrown) I'm looking at getting 3 more people who are wanting to do the same style set up so that I can make it worth while...actually with my employment status right now one would be worth it. If I can get those 2(Frank and Jason) and 3 others then I might be able to get my metal cheaper and the shocks studs in a bulk buy.
    the cost would depend on if you need anything special done to make it fit, like Frank has a fuel pump and filter in his frame rail. If you have a 2" or 3" body lift it would be easier to do also cus then the crossmember can go on top of the frame. All the set ups will have bolt in top mounts and weld on axel mounts.
    I'm looking at a base of $40 plus labor. I can build one on Friday to get an idea of cost per set up, and how many hours it will take.
    The first 3 to PM me are on the list and anyone else interested will have to wait and see, if I get enough I may just mass produce these.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Hey Jeremy...don't forget there's hardly anybody here today cuz it's Turkey day. Take some good pics of the ones you build and post them...I think you'll have a much better response.

    Thanks Steve...very nice set-up. I already did the relocation myself last year though. Unless I'm mistaken Jeremy is looking at building these things and selling them too.
