We got fenders and doors mocked up a few weeks ago. The body mounts did require custom Delrin spacers to make everything line up but matches stock spacing to the frame. No effective body lift. Last thing we completed was mock-up of the brake booster with factory stiffener plate.

Top and tailgate fitment is close to done. We will have to put a steel structure in the back because the driver side quarter panel is laying out a bit. This added structure will serve as tailgate hinge mounting as well.

it’s been a few weeks and we have been trying to figure out a hidden rollbar to fit inside the body. Here are some pics of what we came up with. We are sandwiching the bed rail fiberglass between the upper and lower section with bolts and using an extra body bushing before the frame mounted section.

Been busy at work lately but I got some time this weekend to design my new trans mount to include a 1.5” drop to help my rear driveshaft angle a bit. Planning on 2” square 1/8” wall and put a piece of 1/4” strap material to bolt through. E783EAC2-BD79-43E9-90DD-EF43C6612C65.jpeg
