Got the engine bay harness rerouted extended and trimmed. Took it for a test drive with some super custom headlights. Drives pretty good for no shocks yet lol.

It has a face! Put hundred or so miles on it, everything is good, only lost one power steering line I forgot to flair. Ran it to the lake and its a monster. Needs a rear locker!

What’s the wheelbase now? Pics make it look to be stretched about 6” or more?

It's probably 12" longer. Sits at ~118-119. Rear axle is pushed back even farther than in the side view photos. Turns tighter than the TTB did tho.

You might be right, internet says stock is just under 112.

I really like what you did here. The fab work looks excellent!
Thank you! The front spring hangers were designed by our CAD guy at work so I can't take credit for those. Rear shackles are also built by him. I cut up and reworked alot of factory Ford stuff.

More carnage lol. There was a grille on the expo, exploded into 1000 pieces. Lights were all off though thank goodness. That's a pretty loaded down service truck, still had to have been CRUISING tho! Not too sure what happened, looks like it ripped park out of Blue and pushed it into the next couple cars? Still a weird place for everything to end up if you ask me. Blue was parked back where the rear of the white truck now is.

Man that was a hit. That service truck got smoked worse than the explorer (both are scrap metal). I bet it made one hell of a noise.

It happened early morning before anyone was around. Guy sat in the truck for almost an hour before someone saw him! Cops arrested him for being "high" didn't say on what. Supposedly he passed the blower. Still aren't sure if our camera is wide enough to have caught it. Boss has been out of town
