Got lots done today. Hopefully my new bushings will be here tomorrow so I can hang the motor where it needs to be.

It's not even close to how high its gonna be. I didn't take a pic of that we had to build a custom lifting plate. The whole truck should be able to get a little lower.

Good , I thought that was the position you were going for. That would really be hard on ground clearance and your oil pan.

The real question is when are you going to get beadlocks that allow you to run less than 180psi in your tires
