I don't think i have ever posted the plan Kyle....it keeps changing....

Right now.....it's gonna be a family type wheeler, still streetable but able to tackle some fun stuff. EFI 351W/C4/dana 20, narrowed HP44/8.8 rolling on 37's

keeping the radius arms in the front and leafs in the rear for now, was trying to keep it simple but you know how that goes. Planning on 3.5 springs and maybe 2" body, I want to keep it as low as possible.

Track bar will be built to fit, steering box may be ok where it is but if not it is easy to move forward.
