Looks like a relatively safe, smart way to get it done.

Adapt, improvise, overcome...

Did you actually get it out of the garage? Looks like it doesn't clear the door.

Yes it cleared with room to spare, and luck don't have anything to do with it :)

The truck will be but the engine won't. MR Kaase will be starting his first run of redesigned boss 429 hemi heads and I will have a set with intake before I finish the engine. I might slap in a factory 69 365 HP 460 for the trip though. How's sunday work for you on the springs?

It's now ready for the pick-up cab to go on. I wish I would have listened to me when I swore I'd never do it again.
