Was hoping to get the cab pushed forward a bit more but looks like thats where it sits. After getting the dash out I realized where i needed to cut the firewall things are going to get real tight with the gas pedal. Between my big shoes and I would rather get wheeling sooner than later, I won't be cutting the firewall. Body cant get much lower without major surgery to structural cab sheet metal

We had a member put a 4 door Explorer on a shortened F250 chassis complete with the 300 inline 6!

That's the plan! My driver door is Red and it's replacement already has the wing, so just need the parts for the pass side.

I'm stoked! We ordered the files online and cut them on the lazer at work. Yes uniball pivots. Havent decided on lift yet so not cutting the BJ yet. Really need to source the billet lower. Going to be doing 2 more sets for my buddies and building engine cages.

Me being me, I was itching to get back out wheeling so this was purchased. In fantastic condition for the price. Push button 4x4 even works! Just had to find a front shaft! Still not sure why it was missing.... Thank you President Trump
