Default Fx- 8

Hey guys so I have been working on my truck now for a little over a year and a half now been slowly getting stuff done. I figured since I am moving back to Ontario I should try and find a local forum and this is the one I found. Anyway here is my build thread. The plans for it are as follows

2002 FX$ body
302 converted to Propane
C6 Tranny
203/205 Doubler or Atlas not sure yet
78 Dana 60 king pin
78 for 10.25

Frame 2x3x3/16 rectangular tubing
Back half is all 2 inch ERW .120 tubing


All of my brackets and tabs I bought from TMR Customs in Aurora.

no on to the good stuff.
The bare frame


Boat sides

Upper link mounts for the front four link



As of right now I need to get some pictures but I have the front axle in place and starting to get the pinks cut, and the rear is at the same point.

Let me know what you guys think

Cheers
Chris

Kind of. I trimmed the front fender to the point were they resemble a jeep high line fender, so they are out of the way of the tire. And the frame is narrow enough now so that I can go full bump with the Dana 60 and not rub the frame. I will post more pictures this afternoon/ this evening.

So I made some more progress today, and I am quiet happy with the way everything turned out. So here is a video of how everything turned out.

Drivers side

Head on





And here is a taste of what I am going to be doing with the rear doors as well as the inner panels for the front as well.
