HIs is a little different since he has to adjust the height for the front suspension.

Evan from what he said to me the plan is to keep the frame under the cab, but I don't know why at this point.

that is a 2v motor, the intake and head height is completely different, zach's is a 4v motor with the big long runner intake tubes...

wow you guys don't mess around do you? Thats some awesome tube work on that frame. Like someone else asked are you eventually going to tube the frame under the cab or is that staying? once you've come this far you might as well change it all lol. I'd love to see this truck in action!!!
