You don't happen to have the rear half of that frame, do ya? I need a new frame (new truck really, lol) from the cab back due to the excessive rust.

My question is what happen to the 5.4?
its been pushed off to fall, it made more sense to do this first and get it out of the road that way nothing would have to be redone again.

one question though, what is it you want to accomplish with this? jumping? or just because its bad ***?
3 link, more flex, smoother, consistent, tunable, stronger, cage, performance...

nah, i wont, going to make some new mounts and make them solid. I need the BL to properly fit the 5.4 with hopefully enough room to shove it farther back and up/down to fit everything under the cab but above the frame.

thats why I said that. After the first roll its broke in for more beating the **** out of it. Until then I'm sure knowing how hes been with his truck in the past it would be hard to just purposely trash it on a wim.
