    Will do on the parts.

    I have a Ford divorced NP203 and a GM NP205 with the VSS tail housing to use as a Doubler. I just need a short 32 spline input shaft.

    No problem man. The tires are 9.5-16 Power Torques from Goodyear.

    I haven't done anything to the truck since I stabbed the 4L80e in, so no updates there. In regards to a shop, I came up on a chance to possibly buy 120 acres that borders my family's farm, so that takes priority over spending money to build a shop. Instead, I've been working on closing in the shelter I've been working out of to get me by for a few more years. Once the renovations are done to that I hope to get back to working on the truck.

    Thanks!

    Apparently I never posted these pictures from before the transmission swap but after the Bogger purchase.

    Before I with any more chassis work I may work on getting the cab welded to the sliders just to check clearances.

    Thanks.

    Part of welding the cab to the sliders is tying the two rails together with more than just sheet metal, so a cage of sorts is in order. I'm using Bendtech, which requires XYZ measurements, so I need a way to map the interior of the cab to lay out the tube locations. My solution is this jig which I can expand via the threaded rod to wedge between the floor and ceiling and then slide the "carriage" up and down to set Y. By clamping a straight edge to the angle iron shelf on the carriage I can measure over horizontally to get the X and Z dimensions.

    It still needs a little bit more work but hopefully I will be building the digital version of the cage before too much longer.
