Is it still going to house the hood and fenders?

I ran into a problem. I couldn't push the motor back far enough without cutting the frame off. FYI

22-24 belly, pretty much same as before

116-118, again, same as before

Uptravel, going for 6" min. I had 3 before with the trackbar being my limiting factor, then oil pan. If I keep the ride height the same, another 3" shouldn't be an issue.

Made my motor mounts, now just to cut them down to size once I get the motor between the frame rails



Welded up front truss too. Gonna sand blast the axle then get that tacked together.

I like the mounts :-)

What size box tube is that? 1/4 wall?

I think I'm going the other way with my mounts so I can pull the motor out of the bottom of the truck.

I haven't been tracking for a few weeks and there was a lot to catch up on. Looks good.
