I like it, but not any lower, so (dont yell at me) I am going to flip the shackles back over (3" higher), get the bed installed, and then adjust to this height with blocks as needed. New shocks will now fit as expected. I need to weld this stuff in place so I will stop messing with it. C notch may not be needed, there is 3 1/2" travel available with the rear axle at this height, maybe that is enough? Made patterns today to make the notch but I will save them.

Wheels are 18x8s, tires are 235/50/18s, all came from a 2011 mustang GT.

We actually just got through a restoration about 4 years ago and the 300 I6 is still running strong. Trying to decide if I should wait for it to start going out then do the restomod. I want to do crown vic front and rear suspension and the crown vic motor/trans/rear end. but anyways don't mean to derail this thread. keep up the good work.

Update sort of

Had to move the chassis to another bay for its winter slumber, cab chop is mostly done but my buddy like myself does most of his work while snow is on the ground. So this truck build will be paused for a few months until all the cab is back. Meanwhile I will continue on the truck #2 build.

Nice.

Are you planning on staying with those wheels?

Looking good Dave... Two builds at once lol your a man of many projects just like myself.... I plan on starting my build around end of December ... Love the GT wheels I'm considering a set myself... I haven't found too much info on them I know their alloy ... Do u think they would polish up.... And what did you do to fit them on the jag front??? Adapters ??

Thanks!
I broke one of my own car building rules by doing two builds at once, but this is the first time I farmed out something so I cant just sit around waiting.
I would think the wheels would polish up, I like them silver. I have another set of chrome wheels as well similar style but not exactly the same. I think there may be a picture of them somewhere in this build thread, if not I can find one. They were going to be for truck #2, but I like the torque thrust Ds as well.
Wheels are on with adapters. If the tire side clearance is too tight I will send out a set of jag hubs to get plugged and redrilled for the 4 1/2" Ford pattern so the adapters would not be needed. Gotta have Ford wheels even if the engine is an "off" brand.

Dave, I have been off my truck project for two yrs, but am back!
I got to get my bearing straight, blow off the dust, and pick up where I left off.
I am admiring your progress and the filler in the fender looks great!

Thanks, good to see you are back at it! I am looking forward to some updates, get that thing on the road
I am trying to keep pushing on truck #2 but lately I just cant seem to catch a break, my tow vehicle that I need for snow plowing in the winter is now leaking gas, I dropped the tank but all the lines are junk so I have to spend some time fixing that.
I also got distracted this last weekend and dragged home this 1956 dodge that has been sitting since 1983. It is a literal basket case but too solid to not grab and save, probably be a frame swap build but not here since it isnt a Ford.




I have a lot of outside commitments for the next few weeks so probably no new updates on my end for awhile.

I am gonna build an addition on my garage, first, so I can have more room to work on the truck. So I probably won't have any updated for a little while myself. But you got some good stuff goin on there!
