small update:

I have actually been doing some little things here and there on the truck. I picked up some more steel today, some 2x2" box 3/16th and some 3/16th plate. All the mounts that were on the frame that I wasnt using, Stock trans crossmember, all IFS brackets (never cleaned them up after I cut them off there was like 1/4" tall left from all of them.) are all gone. I have a mock up trans crossmember built (its made of wood, easier to work with). Im waiting for my new trans mount so I can finish mocking up the new crossmember. After that I have to modify the frame side link mounts to fit with the new crossmember then I can move on to fitting my upper link.

I get really excited when this gets updated because I think to myself "Holy crap it's done and he's just been dicking around with us this whole time."

But all I got today was a stinking transmission crossmember and some grinding. *sigh*

Hope your a-pillars will continue through the floor to the frame instead of ending on the sheetmetal like the pic. I know it will, just pointing out that strange decision.

Did some small engine bay stuff today. Relocated the coolant overflow/wiper fluid tanks to the back of the bay where the heater box was. I also removed the stock battery tray. This took me about an hour and a half because of all the spot welds and not being able to drill them all out due to the drill not fitting. But I finally got it out. Im going to relocate the fuel evap stuff that is in the engine bay up front to where the battery tray was. All in all I should have all the room I need for my coilovers now.

35.5"-27.75"=7.75"

7.75x150=1162

I made the rest of my frame plates for the front end. They are 3/16th plate that will get welded onto the frame so that I can mount my coilover hoops. The one plate on the driverside is 1/4" but that is where the steering box is going to mount. I didnt get a chance to weld them on, Im opening the pool today and trying to finish up some small steps Im building on the back patio.

I was bored today so I started making my Sliders. I cut the 4x2" 3/16th wall box down to 80" long. I then cut two legs for each side out of 2x2 3/16th wall box. I will be adding two more legs to each slider but for now I have two just to get them mocked up and Ill add the other two after. They are going to be beefy as hell. They should weigh in at 100 pounds per side.
