Nice looking truck!! That 4WU kit looks beautiful, as always. Should be pretty bad ass after it's all done.

Got any more pictures from the initial swap?

Thanks.

The 4WU 3 link design looks amazing.

Here are some pictures from the TG kit.
When it was first completed. Sitting on 33 BFG KM2.


With the new wheels and 35.

Mounted the motor on the frame and started mocking the front 3 link kit.

Panhard Frame Mount

Driver side bump stop

Passenger side bump stop

Going to install the cab, mock the coilovers and cycle the suspension checking for clearance next.

Boxed the frame and started mocking up the Chevy 63 in the rear. I decided to go with the RuffStuff Specialties 63" Chevy spring swap kit and the side mount shock brackets.
Boxed the frame using the Trial Gear kit.

For the Chevy 63 I moved the front hangers 7.5" forward and the rear shackle hangers in the original location.

Chevy 63 mocked up.


Welded the RuffStuff Specialties axle shock mounts.
