yeah working with that D30 for a coil swap isnt helpn ya proly, EB axles give ya a little more room. but you gotta do what ya gotta do to get that baby in and working. progress looks great!

Id say the same thing as you Zack if i had a 4.0. cause thats plenty of power when gear'd right too. But having a 3.0...all you can think of is wanting a 5.0, idk i love that v8 sound too!

DUDE! Your ripping apart and re-designing a whole front suspension on your truck.. a v8 swap would be a LOT easier IMO LOL!
