    so here goes my plan feel free to express ur opinion. i was gonna do the usual tt and shackels as well a 3 in body lift. i was about to sign truck into shop doing it when i got a call a 79 ford f150 4x4 was for sale for 400 buck so ig ot to thinking hmm. well heres what im going to do im taking the body off the f150 and the explorer and gonna shrink the frame by couple inches and leave solid axle up front of f150 and make custom mounts for body on explorer. my buddy is goign the welding since he is a certitifed wleder and is great with frame work. while were are under there were also gonna box the frame for strength and building the motor right now its a bone stock 351m. so wish me luck as give me a hyperlink if this has been done before

    Hell if you're pulling the body just move the drive train while it's off.

    okay so got all the plastic parts outta the truck as far as the driver side and passenger side round windows and floors. all the plastic on the rear is loose but i have to have the sockets to remove the handles and the hooks in rear. didnt realize that our truck interior was held together with primarily philips head screws. if some one will tell me how to post pics i will gladly post all the ones i have now
