Set the cab tonight but it will come back off for rear cross member mod's. 4" body lift in the back and 1/2" up front to level it is unacceptable...I like though and I think a good weight transfer will be had.

Nice, clean work on those body mount repairs, Tim. The project is looking good!

Thanks man, Here's a little update. The heart should be dyno tuned and ready for install by thursday. I will also be picking up another tool box to replace the tall one on there now ( too tall). I had it on the late model scales and as it sits it weighs 2,680 LBS I might make 3500 after all, The flatbed weighs in at a whopping 52 LBS. If everything with the engine works out it should be near 600 HP but only the dyno will tell. I can't fricking wait to do WHEELIES!

Thank's guy's, I should be picking up the engine thursday evening just in time to leave for Boyne for a weekend with the family. I'll have next friday night and saturday to put it in and finish everything up so I can make it to Mesick on mothers day to race. Don't you just hate when family plans cut into your wrenching/racing schedule?

Well thank you Sir, I just hope it work's, I have 38 LBS of preload in it now and hoping it will help with some weight transfer to the rear. A little late model racing parts/info thrown at a mud truck

How about an update Tim? It's going on a year.... I want to hear that engine...

You're sitting on a regular bronco frame correct? Stock wheel base?

I'm trying to picture if there would be enough room with an extended cab...
