Gene got the rear end in there, but is taking his time and measuring a few more times, since it fell off the jack stands. Luckily his rib cage broke the fall. LOL


Good thing the rear end wasn't much wider!

That's the smallest monstrous axle I've ever seen! How much is left before she's ready to spin some tires and waste some chevys?

Rolling chassis is here. Now just waiting on power. The guy building the motors Father passed away Saturday. He was just gone a week last month for him being sick, now he is obviously gone to take care of family business, which naturally comes first. It is a huge, tiny axle isn't it? LOL

Yeah, Dropped it 3" and changed to DJM control arms, springs, and shocks. throw another 900 pounds of motor on top of it, and it will be smashed nicely 3" off the ground.
