    Wow! That center mount front clip is pretty damn nice! Are you guys shortening the aircraft carrier'esq wheelbase? You guys in Michigan are really stepping it up!

    What wheels and tires are you guys planning? That looks like a pretty aggressive KPI for most truck wheels.

    The dent side has My buddy Steve's fenders on it. Didn't think that he had sold that many. Really nice glass though.

    A-arms on an old Ford, next they'll be putting an LS1 in it...........

    LOL, the Michigan crew is definitely stepping up the game. The wheelbase is going to remain somewhat aircraft carrier'esq. The wheels, I am not sure yet, but the tires will be 39's. We have 37's mocked up on it right now, and the KPI actually looks pretty good. I will post up some pics later. I also have pics of the f-100 all the bolt on parts from the 250 too.

    So here is the front module all tacked up.





    And the module just rolled in front of the truck. We used the 37's that came on the truck in the first place. 39's will fit perfect.







    Now, all the bolt on parts like the rear cage, the front suspension, and all the glass are going on the "shop truck". The goal is to get this ready for the pre-runner invasion in a couple weeks at Silver Lake.






    I am going to knock out Frank Taylors Raptor this week. That is getting new 2.5 bumps, a small bed cage for a spare tire, cooler, and a jack. More pics to come!
