Got the d60's (obviously) but changed routes on the motor going to do one of the first 6.8L swaps. Measurements say it will fit, guess time will tell.

Okay nice gotcha that will be cool ad different. I need to look through the d60 swap, because thats the route I THINK ill go for my 4bt swap to run 37s. Im on the 4bt swaps, its a slow process of learning first though.

Weld in bungs for 1.5" dom. Its built off of the psc website pretty much minus the dom was local.

7/8-18 lh
7/8-18 rh
7/8-18 tie rod end for t applications taper front to back

And then the matching 7/8-18 tube adapters for lh and rh thread and 1" id dom.
