Note the axle is relocated 13" rearward. It now has the wheelbase of an extended cab truck.

Running 265/40/22 tires. Yes they are rubber bands! They are load rated at 2180 each. Should be a nice margin of error in the front and rear.

The wheels have full range of motion. I will have to roll the front fender lip. Maybe have the body shop open the wheel openings a smidge but I'm not putting the horse before the cart there as I'd rather run 35 series tires before cutting the fenders.

Thank you! Me too. I have a collection of images that inspire me. I'm not sure where this project will end but if you smash these images up and lay them on the Hank it will look something in the realm of :

So maybe I missed something here. What power plant are you using? Are you planning on boxing the frame as well?

Power plant is a 12v p pump 6bt donated by my best friend. We will box the frame up front and above the frame notch over the rear axle. That's why I haven't built the pan hard bar yet. Planning the notch,box, and panhard bar right now since they all interconnect.

Took me a while to figure out a pan hard bar location. There's not enough axle tube between the frame rails and the center chunk to weld a bracket too. With the air bags mounted behind the axle there's nowhere to add a pan hard bar behind the axle. I decided to build a bracket that bolts to the back of the rear diff cover. The pan hard bar will travel between the rear diff and the airbags.

Frame Notches fabbed up and frame cut to fit. Gives me 4" up travel at ride height.
