    Not sure yet I don't want it sitting quite this tall for sure but it'll be height adjustable anyway so not a huge deal ...

    Now I'm figuring out clearances and mounting







    The rear bolts are an 18mm bolt (rather oddball) , they showed up yesterday so I should be able to start designing the rear bracket setup ... Fun but time consuming !!
    Your never really done but testing and modifying is all part of the fun !!

    I've made quite a bit of progress







    Looks kinda mean !!

    Steering and brakes are squared away





    The steering box created quite a tabocle but after working through it I'm pretty happy with the turn out ..





    Gonna be an animal !!

    Sounds like it's the perfect excuse to enlarge the wheel wells and put some bigger tires on it.

    Some 37s would look awful good in there!

    The bolt size is 18 mm , I got some but metric stuff sure is expensive !!

    Pete remember how small your 37"s looked compared to my 33"s lol

    Eventually I'll go up to 35"s but for now I'll run the 33's

    I worked front to back cleaning scrubbing and pressurewashing , man was it nasty !!



    It finally has a dash again !!



    Carpet turned out great !!



    My favorite part , I found a 2wd instrument panel that has oil pressure and voltage gauge factory



    This will be nice !!

    Your 33s were hardly larger than the ol' man Lincoln tires! That is a comfy commuter. I think it needs some axles and lift. HEHE
