    When I purchased the truck the crossmember was "cut" I mean torched out to make room for a 312 Y block and manual transmission. I currently have the truck stripped down to the frame and I was planning on installing the original crossmember and rebuilding the Y Block. When I came across your post I thought it was a great idea, but I am unsure if it will work with the straight axle suspension. I am probably going to play it safe and replace the original crossmember. Thanks for responding to my post, once I figure out how to uplodad pics, I will share them. Again, thanks for the feedback.

    Dan, I saw an old thread about your idea for adding a strap on the top frame rail above the trans as a replacement for the origianl crossmember and boxing in the area where the original crossmember was attached. I am at that cross-roads and I wanted to know if your idea indeed eliminated the excessive flexing without the original crossmemember inplace and have you hade any issues with your frame. Any info you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time.

    I should have bought that lift years ago. I picked it up on ebay 2 years ago.

    Did you get that flattie 6 to fire up?

    Hey Dan,

    Just stopped by to take a look at your pix. Nice shop! I always dreamed of having my own lift someday.
