awsome man, know youve been working on it as long as I have. Cant wait to see how it comes together. Are you doing all of the work yourself? What size tires, gears etc? If all goes right ill be doing my swap in about 5 months.... Soooo much more money needed....

well i would love to do this myself but i dont have the tools to do it. I know a torch works fine for cutting all the IFS out but i would prefer a plasma cutter but i dont have one. I also dont have anyway to get the truck high enough off the ground to be able to swap everything in. Besides the guy who is doing it said at most he will only charge 800 bucks labor. What ill be doing in a few weeks is just putting in the springs axles and such to lift it. Ill be sitting on some old 8 lug rims and tires once i find them for a while because i dont really want to drive it until I have all the money together for the tires, rims, and front D-shaft. So even though it will have the lift and such it wont be done yet.
Im just taking it one step at a time

Sounds cool. Im probably onl going to use a torch, cut off wheel and grinder to remove the ifs, its not real thick metal or anything. As far as lifting it im just going to use some big ass jack stands :anitoof:
