I ment v6 or v8. hmm have to see how my rims and tires fit. Just ordered a set of soft 8s with 4" bs. I have 33x12.50 duratracs, guess if worst case sell those and find some 33x10.5s.

Tcase is in, just need to put fluid in and and buy a conversion joint for the front shaft. Then I get to gut the interior to install the shifter at a later date. I am missing a piece to the linkage. Its ordered from Ford, should have it Monday.

Need to trim the side steps in the front and relocate the rear bumper.



Need to install the shifter for the transfer case, then that is done. Better pics tomorrow.

Worked on the shifter install tonight...







Need to find the "right" shifter boot, then it'll be all set.
