That is looking great
It is crazy how you guys lowered the ride height by notching that front piece of frame for the frenchy.
Just awesome!
I'll bet we can.

Front is done minus the steering box. We're waiting on a flat pitman arm prior to messing with it.

Rear frenched hangers are being installed today as well.

Once I graduate school in 2 or 3 years, I'm driving my truck to your shop as a graduation present to myself. I'm always amazed by your work.

we plated the frame on the inside of each frame rail as well as the front section of the outside in front of the body mount. Its not going anywhere.

I hate taking pics without cleaning the welds up as they look like ass otherwise, but this will give you the idea.

So, here are some pics with tires on it. The axles are sitting on jack stands. Tire is off the ground 1" and I would take out another 1" for tire squat. Frame height is 25.5" roughly. So, with 33s it should be 23.5".

Add 2" of height for 37s and it would be 25.5". And, it hasn't settled yet.

Got the rear buttoned up. 5.29s installed in the rear diff with a solid pinion spacer. Set pinion angle. Just need some shorter shocks for the rear to come in to get them mounted.

Radiator will be here on Tuesday too.

I love this idea! Although it looks like the spring might possibly hit the corner of the mount under full compression. Maybe not?

It will be close but there should be clearance at full stuff.
