More Pictures here of the completed project. Some of the crossmember is made out of 1/2" steel plate, my modified stock rad, modified master reservoir, and custom suspension arms. Were using the stock axles. The driver side input shaft that goes in the transmission needs to be extended so it will lock. I had a drive shaft shop do the work for me. The "bumpy stuff" in the engine compartment is a 'tint-able truck bed liner' product which can be brushed, rolled or in my case, sprayed. Yes, I sprayed it my self in my gararge, and did everything else also , including making the custom mounts and front cross member
