    Got around to doing some frame work today.
    Took sixteen inches out of the wheelbase and about a foot off the frame.
    New body mounts should be done tomorrow, so then I can do a real test fit.

    I'm assuming the truck is 4x4 already? Always fun watching a build come together!

    Yes, truck was born 4x4. Ex oil field.
    Don't really need all wheel drive but I do need clearance and for it to be tough.
    Got a good deal on this truck which was the donor for the body after removing the welding deck and front cabinet
