yea don't cut that front yet ..you could not start the bend by the door? most of the guys i have seen that did that, they cut the cowl down and the center of the grill then bolted the whole fender on straight. looks good like that.you will be glad you did all that work once you wheel it. can you drop it a few inches? looks kinda high.going to be a sweet rig john.

Yeah thought about that with the fender, but I wouldn't of liked the gap at the door it would leave.

Is kinda high, but the frame height is the same as the last truggy I had, I when I finally go 4 link rear and 3 link front I will lower it.

I think for now I will enjoy the between the wheels ground clearance.

Getting closer, Got the core support pretty much done, trans lines are ran and done. Started laying out the under hood wiring. Gonna need to make a few relocation brackets for some of the under hood stuff. Also need to figure out where to put the battery. Its under hood location is no longer there lol. And need to get creative with the Air filter and air intake. Stupid Fords and there dual inlet throttle bodies.

Got more done tonight, just about finished under the hood. Need to get a taurus fan, lower radiator hose and fill the fluids and I think I can fire it. Got most everything mounted under the hood and the battery tray built.

Also got my seat pulled back out so I can install my patch panel on my floor.

List is getting shorter Trying to get it wheelable (not done) for Jan 2nd at Rocks/Valleys.

Right now I need to
1. Fill the fluids (all of them)
2. Patch my cab floor
3. Finish running elec
4. Cut my hood
5. Build my bed cage
6. Build my bumpers
7. Buy a door
8. Build drive shafts
9. Test run in the yard and hope for the best.

Well got it full of fluids and ran it to open the t-stat. Made a front driveshaft and installed. Tried to start on the bed cage, but I can't get the bends I need for the behind the cab hoop. Seeking alternate methods of getting the hoop bent for me. Got my cab floor section repaired.

Need to figure out the exhaust, the two pipes off the y pipe are really close together and need to figure out how to put mufflers on it, needs to be quiet.

But went into the garage today and found that I had a pinhole in the gas tank. When I got the f250 the rear tank was empty, but it looked to be in really good shape other wise. Guess now I know why it was empty.
