    A little more progress, got the engine and trans pulled yesterday. Going to take some time to clean the engine bay as well as the engine and trans before i start cutting the frame. Il be changing out some seals while im at it. Valve cover has been leaking all over the fckin place so thats first up. Il probably rework my trans crossmember AGAIN while its out too.

    That truck is so low it's dragging on a red ants back... That is tight to the ground, outstanding!!!

    Its an inch lower now. Z'd the front clip and cut off the leaf spring hangars over the weekend. Shes laying flat on the ground now. Need to fishplate the joints now. And the trans is a W58
