if you're going to build some garbage you may as well come up with names for the garbage you attach to it along the way... like my radius arm mounts

Looks like you need to push your front axle forward now. I had the same problem with my bronco after changing out springs. other than that its still looking pretty good.

Project blue shitter now is complete with torque converter bolts after 10 minutes (7 weeks later) 5.5" rear springs (surprisingly) a tight tranny and inspection plates are tight and tranny drain plug and a starter are set

still to do
-hook up trans lines
-fill with trans fluid 3.5-4 qts actually probably a lot more cause when we tipped the trans a lot came out
-fill t case
-attach tranny crossmember
-measure and drop off driveshafts
-attach battery cable
-attach t case linkage linkage
