    After 2+ yrs., it has finally moved on it's own power. I still need to build the rear axle, but every thing else is done. The only big bummer is that while pulling it out I found that the transmission is slipping like a well lubed hooker. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif O-well, I am just happy it moved. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Agreed!! What's the scoop? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif I love the front fenders! /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif

    Did you move the rear springs in? How far is the rear pushed back?

    How did you move the body back? Just relocate the body mounts?

    When it was a bare frame, I cut off the mounts and mover them back. I didn't add the 1" lift till later when I found out I had to. As it is, the top of the doubler is less than 1/4" from the body. It is very tight up under there.
