Earlier this year you cut the back half off, now you cut the front half off too? What's left, the hood and the cool speakers?

I think it's going to fun watching you throttle on the 5.3

so i am trying to decide if i wanna leave enough frame to mount the motor on. or just cut it back and mount it too the dom tube. what do you guys think will be stronger? if i leave the frame it will be plated. motor mounts are dom tube welded to builder bushings.

I think its the perfect time to scrap it and build a buggy. And scrap prices are high right now.

I just cut mine at the firewall and I will use 2" Dom to make my frame extensions. I have about 20' of 2" DOM left, no better place to use it.
