Got the closeout prepped, primed, and ready to weld




Stripped all the motor mounts and cab mounts off the frame in prep for new AEV Hemi Mounts. We'll be fabbing the body mounts and working out the frame stretch next

Finished up the cab closeout and started sorting out frame placement. As we knew the front mounts will require some creativity, the rest are pretty straight forward.

The rear frame stretch is pretty well planned out, now I've just got to get going on the fabwork.

Thanks Ben, it was really exciting to put everything in its place and see how it fit and what it would look like

Here's a few more as we mocked up the box too:
