I could not use my front CM as the only thing that I could use was the running board brackets. Because of that I had to use the front CM from the SS so no need of wood blocks, and had to figure a way to get the brackets in place.

Yes I used the front cross member from the flareside. I plan on using some 1" black iron pipe as a block in the cross member.

Looks to be in the same state of build other than the hood. Yours is on, as mine.
I know it feels good to get back like that.
