the radiator is ahead of the mounts but i was ganna figur out somethin
 






if any one wants photos of any thing specific let me know or any measurments

i dont think this is a popular swap so thats why im not realy doing a how to just a build and any feed back is great. The main reason im doing this swap is my boy is coming of age and can come wheelin now. So my wife and i figurd swap it to a suv.

also has any one cut the back off one of these and walled it i would like to see some photos before i wack into mine.I'v seen it done to the b2 a million times, I plan'd on using the back of a ranger cab
 






Nice work, this truck is going to look awesome when its done.
 






i think so to when its done i would like to bring it back down 2 inches add the hydo bump stops and coil overs but i dont think that is ganna be any time soon the add on's any way should be done in about 2 weeks
